Cartier Privé Tank Chinoise Quality Replica Watch Collection
No fuss, Luxury Cartier Replica has released a range of great products such as the newly lacquered Santos-Dumonts, the Coussin collection, a pair of stunning Tank Louis watches, and of course the Masse Mystérieuse rotor that houses the entire movement inside the case . For me, though, these two new Privé Tank Chinoise models stand out from all the others.
For those unfamiliar with Chinoise’s history, traditionally it was actually done in a square box, until this year, the entire collection became rectangular. This is a design decision that definitely makes sense, especially considering that the modern Cartier first copy watches Design 101 is basically “tank = rectangle” and “Santos = square”. Still, it’s cool to have one in the original square box, but I really didn’t hang up.
As with almost everything related to design, aesthetics is a matter of taste. If you can’t tell, I love brands on both levels, always have. They provide an extra flare to the case, but in a very substantial, almost stable way, and also serve as a partial frame, with “open” sides to avoid packing the dial in.
Now, onto the watch at hand. First, keep in mind that these are Privé pieces, which means they’re meant to pay homage to iconic Cartier replica vs real pieces from the past. This also means that they are very limited in production and are considerably more expensive than standard production Cartier watches. The new Tank Chinoise is available in two models, each with several sub-variants.
These pieces blend beautifully with the dial design inspired by traditional Chinese window designs, and while a bit dated, they are very well executed. The skeleton dial is lacquered in black and red on the gold model and blue and red on the platinum model.
Although the difference in case size between these skeletonized Tank Chinoise Quality Replica Watches and the three more traditional pieces is not huge, there is a difference. The open case measures 39.5mm high, 29.2mm wide and 7.7mm thick. Looking at the case back, you can see the newly manufactured 9627 MC manual-winding movement developed exclusively for this watch.
The lacquered pattern on the front of the dial echoes the gold color, which is Cartier at its best and something that people like me really crave. The hand-wound 9627 MC runs at 21,600 vph and has a 38-hour power reserve.
Now, let’s take a look at the Perfect Cartier Tank Chinoise Watches Review trio with a more classic “standard” dial. Available in yellow gold, rose gold and platinum, the colour of each dial matches the precious metal of the respective case.
You’ll also notice that the hands on the yellow and rose gold models are blue, while the hands on the platinum model are polished gray steel hands. All three feature traditional sunburst brushed dials with Roman numerals. You’ll notice the contrast between the polished blanca and the brushes on the side bezels, which are more pronounced in the metal.
I mentioned the difference in case size between the two models, which are 39.49mm, 29.2mm, and 6.09mm thick. So while the case widths and heights are nearly identical, they’re about 1.6mm thinner than the skeleton watch.
With a closed caseback, these watches feature the manufacture 430 MC hand-wound movement we’ve seen in other Cheap Cartier Replica models, and are based on the Piaget 430P movement. The 430 MC runs at 21,600 vph and has a 38-hour power reserve.
