Crafted in the house of Cartier, this captivating luxury watch comes with a study case and link bracelet construction that are made of premium grade stainless steel. The case that measures 28 mm × 36.5 mm and nearly 7.5 mm has a fixed bezel, a solid caseback, and an octagonal crown that is set with spinel cabochon at its right hand side. Meanwhile, its three-rows link bracelet that measures around 20 mm wide comes equipped with a deployment buckle clasp for convenient fitting.

First launched in 1996, the rectangular case of the Tank Française has bevelled, rounded corners and an integrated steel bracelet making the shape reminiscent of the caterpillar tracks of the vehicle after which it is named.


Built as a practical wrist accessory, the alluring face of this Cartier W51002Q3 is shielded by a sapphire crystal that is enhanced with an anti-glare coating that in addition of lends a better visibility, also ensures that its surface would remains scratch-and-nicks free for years to come. Furthermore, the watch’s whole construction is designed to be watertight to 30 meters so that it wont be easily damaged by slight wetness.

Despite of its considerably compact dial, visibility isn't an issue in this timepiece. Its silver guilloche dial that comes with sword shaped blued steel hands, slim seconds hand, Black Roman numeral hour markers, and a date display at six is quite easy to read. Indeed, it would be much better if the hands and markers are luminous, but, they do already have a good legibility as is. And speaking of the movement inside, the Cartier Caliber 120 that is built based on the ETA 2000-1 is a good Swiss automatic movement that is both accurate and reliable. Specifically, this bi-directional self-winding 20 jewels movement beats at 28,800 alterations per hour, and provides around 40 hours of power reserve.

Whether as a wrist accessory or timekeeper, this mechanical luxury timepiece is quite a satisfactory. It is stylish, has a good built quality, and comfortable to wear. Despite of non-chronometer grade, the mechanical movement fitted inside has a good accuracy, and actually rugged enough for a long shot. Anyway, the original manufacturer suggested retail price of this Cartier Tank Française W51002Q3 automatic steel on steel watch is reasonable enough at $5,500.00.
