Cartier’s magnificent Tank Anglaise
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.
