Hands-On: Vintage Cartier Replica Watches
A “Cartier Reverso” combines the Cartier Tank Replica with the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso in a gold and steel piece that dates to 1947. Note that this is not the Cartier Tank Basculante, which was Cartier’s own take on the reversible dial watch in a rectangular case.
The Tank is most often associated with the rectangular case, and there are several of these at Fane’s exhibit. A Best Replica Cartier Tank “Gondole” from the 1970s has a stepped gold case and is quite reminiscent of the Patek Ellipse.
However, a Ceinture Automatique, also from the 1970s, has a “belt buckle” case shape with crown protector that I can’t help but love largely due to the fact that it’s in white gold, which you don’t see often.
There are a handful of the elongated case Replica Cartier Watches Cintrée pieces, including the gold-plated one worn by Steve McQueen in The Thomas Crown Affair. Even more impressive, though, is an original 1926 model that is very rare and was really a delight to try on.
