The Tank series is Cartier’s most classic watch series, first launched in 1917. New models are introduced in this collection almost every so often.
There must be a secret to a timepiece that remains popular after a century. Tank series watches have been attracting famous players like a magnet for a hundred years. What is the reason?
Men Love the Beauty of Cartier’s Mechanics and Boldness
Although there are a large number of women among the fans of Cartier Tank replica watches, Cartier Tank was originally an uncompromising “men’s favorite”. When Cartier Tank was born, the mysterious Nova Tank of World War I debuted, and Louis Cartier, the head of Cartier, drew inspiration from the top view of the tank. The tank track is represented by the vertical lugs on both sides of the replica watch, and the tank chassis is represented by the square case of the replica watch. A brand new square watch is created and named directly after Tank.
Watchmaking is the most sophisticated mechanical art in the world, and tank watches are the most powerful mechanical art. Therefore, Cartier Tank was regarded as “the most perfect tribute” in that era. Once released, it became an iconic replica watch, loved by the upper class, the rich and the nobles at the time. The commander-in-chief of the U.S. Expeditionary Force in Europe was also one of the first wearers of the Tank watch.
Decades later, the style of men’s replica watches has gradually become bigger. But the boxing champion Ali, who is known for his dexterous butterfly steps, always believes that the small Cartier Tank can also show his absolute control of power. The image of he wearing the classic Cartier Tank, and has always been called the best epitome of “beauty of grace and power” by the photography industry.
Women Love Cartier’s Inversion Tradition
Cartier Tank ushered in the climax of global shopping in the 1960s, and the popularity of women is the main reason. That era was the golden age of the Second Women’s Liberation Movement. The special rectangular shape, neat geometric lines and simple appearance of the Tank series replica watches shew a striking style with sharp edges. It also implies that women were eager to control time and themselves just like men did. At that time, financially independent women liked to wear Cartier Tank very much, in order to distinguish them from the “wives” who wore complicated and gorgeous round women’s replica watches. This tacit “signature” has almost become an invisible expression of their relentless pursuit of self-liberation.
Jacqueline Kennedy is the representative of this type of woman – before her, almost all the first ladies of the United States were pure housewives. They focus on their husbands and family and were always like the invisible ornament behind the president. And Jacqueline Kennedy was an excellent reporter for the “Washington Herald Times” before she getting married, and she never gave up her independent expression after becoming the wife of the president. And had been committed to using the power of fashion and elegance to improve the national image. The black strap Tank, which she often wears, was the embodiment of this spirit.
With Jacqueline Kennedy being the first, the first ladies of later generations chose Cartier Tank to wear naturally. In 2009, for example, Tank Française was worn on Michelle Obama’s official portrait. In the official activities of Queen Rania of Jordan, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands and Queen Mary of Denmark, Cartier Tank also appeared frequently.
Why did they choose Cartier? The reason is simple: the first lady is the image of the country and must be a model of elegance. The classic shape and historical heritage of Cartier Tank make it the best choice. The first lady should not be a vassal of the head of state, so her independent spirit can be expressed through Cartier Tank. Furthermore, Cartier Tank is versatile and compact in shape, conveying the spirit of simplicity and fashion, and at the same time, the brand is noble but the price is pleasant. It is because of all the above that the Cartier Tank series can be called “Tank that never goes wrong”. Never stop in the long river of time, crushing all the popular.
Artists Love the Extreme Simplicity of Cartier
The magnet physique of Cartier Tank has also firmly attracted a number of art celebrities – the Art Deco style originated from the early last century, which emphasized symmetry and geometry, has been the source of inspiration for artists for a long time. The shape of Cartier Tank is the Art Deco style embodied in the replica watch. Cartier Tank series watches have a neutral temperament can be worn both for men and women, which makes it naturally become the favorite of the fashion art circle.
As for the stars, whether it is the actor Clark Gable of “Gone with the Wind” in the golden age of Hollywood, the three-time Oscar winner Ingrid Bergman of “Casablanca”, or the French national treasure actor Alain Delon in the 1970s , French muse Catherine Deneuve; and Brad Pitt and Monica Bellucci, who have dominated the film industry in recent years, all regard Tank as a fashion icon.
The artist’s love for Cartier can better reflect the magic charm of Cartier Tank – Pop Art master Andy Warhol can be called the number one fan of Cartier Tank. His famous quote is “I don’t wear a Tank replica watch to read the time, but I must wear it!”. Although the famous writer Truman Capote wrote “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, he has Cartier lived in his heart, and he collected seven Tank replica watches himself. BTW, when Yves Saint Laurent himself attended the opening ceremony of the Saint Laurent retrospective held at the Metropolitan Museum, he also chose Tank L.C’s ultra-thin replica watch. Presumably in his opinion, the elegant temperament of Cartier Tank complements the “avant-garde and classic” that he has always insisted on.
Nobles Love Cartier Because of Its Heritage
All famous replica watches prefer to use “go beyond time and inherit the years” as their propaganda point. But transferred to reality, it is not easy for a replica watch to truly realize family inheritance. First of all, it must have a sufficient degree of preservation. Secondly, the aesthetics of replica watch styling needs to never be outdated. There must be superior quality to ensure its normal operation. Finally, there must be sufficient cultural concentration to go through the years. Fortunately, Cartier Tank is undoubtedly satisfied with all these points. On the one hand, the Tank replica watch has hardly undergone major modifications due to the changes of the times, and has always maintained a simple square shape. On the one hand, it also adapts to the style of different eras, and constantly introduces new series. This makes Cartier selected as a token of family love – the inheritance of Cartier Tank in Princess Diana’s family is a realistic record of this spirit.
Princess Diana received a Tank Française replica watch as a dowry from her family, the Spencer family, before she married into the British royal family. Later, this replica watch was often worn in public shots. Later, after her death, two famous memorials were left, kept by two sons respectively. One is the sapphire wedding ring commonly seen in the hands of the eldest daughter-in-law, Princess Kate, and the other is Tank Française, which is owned by Prince Harry.
Coincidentally, Harry’s princess Meghan was a movie star before her marriage, and she also bought a Tank Française as a reward for herself when she just became famous. She had not met Harry at that time, but she had already decided to give this TANK watch to her future daughter. Therefore, the words “To MM From MM” were specially engraved on the case back. After the marriage, Prince Harry gave his mother’s Tank Française to Meghan. Meghan can be seen wearing this “mother’s gift” in their first public portrait since they left the royal family.
If we can see these two Cartier Tanks appearing on the wrists of their daughter, the future Princess Lilibet Diana after more than ten years, then we can call it perfect – this kind of sweet and firm tribute between the four generations.
Celebrities have made Tanks popular, and Tanks have also made celebrities style. The reason why Cartier Tank has become a classic is precisely because it has never stopped and has been actively adapting to contemporary history and culture. Tank Never Stop, what about you? Are you also willing to move forward with it?
