Fake Tank Louis Cartier alligator leather strap
Featuring an Art Deco “sector” dial modelled on a style found on the Les Must de Cartier Tank of the 1980s, the Fake Tank Louis Cartier combines an 18k gold case with the in-house, hand-wind 1917 MC movement.
The new model is practically identical in size to what was historically the “large” Tank LC. That means a case that’s 33.7 mm by 25.5 mm, and 6.60 mm high.
It’s relatively small by modern standards, but the Cartier Replica size works well as a formal-dress watch under a cuff, though it would look out of place with casual wear.
The Art Deco dial is simple but striking, and appealing in both design and colour.
The new Cartier Tank LC Replica is offered in two guises – yellow gold with a burgundy and silver dial, or pink gold with a blue and grey dial. Though both are identical in design, the feel is quite different.
It’s a metallic base with a radial brushed finish, and the tracks for the hours and minutes printed on top. While the metallic base is reflective, the printed segments are matte and ever so slightly raised, giving the dial a bit more texture.
