Before we let the new year begin I would like to end 2017 with a short post about some interesting pieces that are available at the various dealers around the world. Some I picked because they’re rare and very hard to find, others I selected, because they’re priced attractive and deliver good quality for the bucks. Of course we start with a Tank since the Tank celebrates it’s 100 anniversary and because a Tank should actually be in every ones collection.
—- TANK LOUIS CARTIER AUTOMATIC —
One of the variations on the Tank Louis Cartier that’s hard to find, is the XL automatic version, in yellow or white gold. The watch is slightly larger than the classic size but smaller than the current XL and the automatic movement makes this version of the Tank, avery easy every day watch.

— TANK A VIS CALENDAR APERTURES —
A beautiful 18 carat white gold Cartier Tank from the Collection Privee, Cartier Paris line. Sporting a manual winding in-house Cartier caliber, 9902MC. Often mis-indicated as a jumping hour, while in fact this watch should be correctly named a dragging hour. The Tank a Vis can be seen as the modern Tank Etanché, since the unique case with bezel, is almost alike.
Complete with inner- and outer box, as well as the belonging booklets and correctly filled-in certificate. The white inner part of the box with the cushion is, as often seen, slightly disintegrating. Click to go to the page of the online SELLER.
— SANTOS 100 LARGE —
This is a unique diamond setting that seldom comes online. Normally the whole case is set with diamonds what gives an overwelming effect. This version that was released in 2004, the diamond setting is less dominant what makes the watch very wearable.
You may find many Santos 100, diamond set watches on line, be be aware that all the ones with luminova hands, have an after market diamond setting. Blued hands is where you’re looking for and to me this watch, ticks all boxes. Click to go to the page of the SELLER.
