Pausing long enough to relish the passage of time is one of life’s great pleasures--and the seconds tick by even sweeter on Cartier’s gorgeous new Tank Anglaise watch.

Anglaise is the fifth member of the legendary French jeweler’s eminently wearable Tank series. It pays homage to a sense of British refinement and brings to mind the rest of the series’s exclusive timepieces: the Tank Solo, the Tank Française, the Tank Américaine and the Tank Louis Cartier.

The face of the Tank Anglaise is a study in understated distinction; the rectangular shape has boldly rounded corners that give it a sleek, modern look. And Cartier’s quest for streamlined design shines through in every detail, from the elegant Roman numerals to the blue steel sword-shaped hands. To see the watch’s super precise winding mechanism, tilt it slightly and catch a secret glimpse of the wheel inside.

Tank Anglaise comes in three sizes and three different gold tones for women and men. Our pick: the stunning rose-gold version studded with diamonds (starts at $32,900).

After all, every hour is more beautiful when admired through rose-gold-tinted glasses.
