Fall Find #3

Think Tank

This post is pretty straight forward. A large Cartier Tank on a leather strap has been on my wish list for a very long time. When I spied Suzi de Givenchy’s watch (Santos?), it leapt to the top of said list.

Santos Dumont?, Tank MC, Tank Americaine.

  • Looks to me more like a Santos, but maybe I am wrong.

  • Isabel- You are probably correct and I’m going to consider it. The Tank MC in the upper right is enormous. I want large, just not that large. Thanks, p

  • Thank you Preston. I needed this today! Love the watch but it’s style of this amazing woman that is so inspiring! ! It’s down to earth and amazingly chic all at the same time. You get the feeling she could wear anything and make it beautiful!

  • Preston, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. You just get me. I have a milestone event coming up in 2022 and was considering this dainty tennis bracelet, but I’ve recently changed my tune and think a Cartier tank watch is a practical, chic, forever piece that I can wear every day. I am petite so I’m trying to find just the right size – I need to schedule an appointment to go try them on. Marcheline Isabelle

  • Substance and style go hand in hand, honestly the watch was the last thing I noticed. She wears everything so well!

  • My eye goes to what is on her right hand – the gold link bracelet(s?). Finding a link bracelet that doesn’t feel like I just sprung jail is a challenge. I don’t want too dainty either. This one looks just right.

  • I love the deployment buckle so much. I bought a men’s Cartier ballon bleu last year with a navy leather strap and deployment buckle – not fiddling with little holes makes all the difference to me for some reason and makes me love wearing a watch with a strap.

  • Paula,
    I wear a similar gold link bracelet that is lightweight but substantial and a gorgeous layering piece! Blue Nile has many beautiful options similar to it.

  • I think it’s the men’s Santos which comes with an interchangeable leather and metal strap. Looks like you may prefer the smaller of the two sizes.

  • The model in the pic is a TANK AMÉRICAINE. I think it’s a nice update on the traditional tank, more elegant.

  • How did I miss this post?
    I love the simplicity of my Tank and wear it almost everyday.
    Changing it up with the new tan band,after 20 years of black, gave it and I a lift.
