The best Swiss fake Cartier Tank Must is replacing the Tank Solo. While, technically, this is the “entry-level” Tank, it doesn’t look it. Now more than ever the Tank Must resembles the look of the Tank Louis Cartier, which is great news for new Tank Must owners but less so for Tank Louis Cartier owners.
The Swiss made copy Cartier Tank Must also pays homage to the colored dials that played a significant role in further popularizing this collection in the 1980s. The reason for this is quite obvious: the color gets a solo slot on center stage. The only text on the dial is Cartier’s brand name and “Swiss Made” at the bottom. Even the traditional Roman numerals are absent, leaving it up to two elegant sword-style hands to tell the time.
This looks just as stunning today as it did back in the 1980s. While also available in blue and burgundy, it is the green dial that steals the show. Why? Because it is green and in fashion.
The Tank Must models with colored dials are available in just one size, 33.7 x 25.5 mm. This sounds small by today’s standards but suits all genders very nicely unless you happen to have truly large wrists.
An option that the new stainless steel case replica Cartier Tank Must offers that wasn’t available for the original is the stainless steel bracelet. While not delivered on one, it is an option for the models with colored dials. The bracelet gives the watch a contemporary touch that suits it very well while simultaneously making it a bit easier to blend in because it dilutes the bright color.
The big question is whether we should buy it. To answer this, you must (no pun intended) first determine how its quartz movement sits with you. If it doesn’t bother you, go for it. But if it does, remember that it is not unlikely for Cartier to launch a mechanical version of these watches in the years to come.
We saw this happen with the Santos-Dumont, and given the warm welcome that these colored Tank Must watches have received so far, it is not far-fetched to assume that the same could happen again.
It is also good to know that while high quality copy Cartier was not very straightforward during Watches and Wonders about whether these colorful Tank Must are part of a limited edition or not, it seems now that they will be – though the exact limitation number is yet to be set.
