Cartier W5200026 31mm Tank Solo XL Automatic for men and women

As expected from Cartier premium timepieces, this wrist flattering watch is constructed of nothing but the finest materials and components for longevity, which of course, offset with a remarkable precision craftsmanship. It does looks slender and quite lightweight, but, it gives away a solid and sturdy feel you’re craving for from a luxury timepiece.

This formal dressing appropriate Cartier W5200026 watch belongs to the Tank Solo XL series, however, it doesn’t actually as large as you may think it is. Based on its size, you could say that it is a large size for ladies, or a medium for gents’ average wrist, and the timepiece is gorgeously slim for an automatic. Its high polished, finely sculpted rectangle case that is made of solid 18K Rose Gold 750 measures 31mm × 40.85mm and approximately 7.65mm thick, meanwhile, its luxurious Brown bracelet that is made of genuine leather bracelet is around 20.5mm wide. The bracelet is supple yet supportive, it comes with a traditional pin and buckle clasp in Rose Gold, and has 7 perforations for maximum adjust-ability. Overall, the watch weighing at about 62 grams.

Side Rear Angle. This timepiece’s brushed steel solid caseback is slightly tapers, making it fits nicely as well for those who has a skinnier wrist. As usual, it is engraved with some general information regarding the watch including its series number, and it is secured with eight screws. Typical to Tank Solo, at the case’s right hand side, lays the series signature circular grained crown in 18K Rose Gold that is refined with an eye catching Blue spinel cabochon. Its face is decently shielded with a scratch resistant sapphire to ensure that its surface would remains scratches-and-nicks free, in which, it also has an anti-reflective coating for an improved visibility. And, being 30 m water resistant, you can be sure that not only this automatic watch wont be harmed by slight wetness, it also wont fog through time and use as well.

The Dial. Just like all the rest of Tank Solo XL timepieces, this unisex’s Cartier W5200026 luxury watch comes with a minimalist styled dial that has a nice degree of read-ability due to its well balanced layout and decent colors’ contrast. Bright in Silver grained White, the dial comes with that famous sword-shaped Blued steel hour and minute hands, a slimmer sweep seconds hand, painted Black italicized Roman numeral hour markers, squared painted Black minute markers around the inner rim, and a legible date window at the 6 o’clock position.

The ones fitted inside, Calibre 049, is one of the Cartier’s best personalized mechanical "three-hands, date" movement. This Cal. 049 is an accurate and fairly rugged automatic caliber that is personalized by the watchmaker based on the finely tuned ETA 2892-A2. Smoothly beating at the harmonic rhythm of 28,800 alterations per hour, this self-winding mechanical 21 jewels movement provides around 42 hours of power reserve under full wind.

Anyway, for all of its quality offerings, this unisex’s 18K Rose Gold on Brown crocs leather Silvered dial Cartier Tank Solo XL luxury watch is reasonably priced with an original manufacturer suggested retail price of $8,200.00.
