Cartier W1534351 28mm Collection Privée Tank À Vis Dual Time Zone Manual for men

Lined as one of the watchmaker’s highly appreciated Collection Privée Cartier Paris haute horlogerie line-up, this two time zone Tank À Vis is more likely a work of art than just a luxury wrist accessory. Indeed, the watch’s appearance itself is gorgeous, however, just like the rest of the brand’s CPCP timepieces which are said to be “the expression of the French tradition in watchmaking”, its true beauty lays inside. And it goes without saying, the materials, components, and precision craftsmanship found within its each every details are the finest.

Based on its size, this Cartier W1534351 Tank A Vis watch would be a medium-to-large for ladies, in which, considering its unisex design, it would be a small-to-medium for gents. Excluding the lugs and crown, its classic rectangle case that is made of 18K White Gold 750 measures 28mm × 32.15mm and approximately 8mm thick. Meanwhile, its handsome Black bracelet that is made of genuine alligator leather and comes equipped with deployant clasp in solid White Gold is around 20mm wide.

Even before noticing its “nearly impossible to miss” signature design elements such as blue sapphire faceted crown, guilloché dial with symmetrical layout, sword shaped hands, just by a glance at its straight lines, smoothly beveled lugs, and sensible “formal elegance”, you’ll know by heart the this watch is a Cartier. Classy.


Caseback.

Side
The flat back of its case is transparent, featuring sapphire display that clearly showcases the Cartier Double-C motif decoration on the bridges of the housed Calibre 9901 MC inside, which held in place by an engraved white gold plate that is secured with 8 screws. On the other side, encased by the screwed bezel, its face is shielded by a flat sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides to ensures that not only it would remains scratches-and-nicks free through ages, but also provides an improved visibility for you viewing pleasure. At the case’s right hand side, lays a faceted sapphire decorated octagonal shaped pull and push crown in white gold.

Despite of its dual time functionality, this Cartier W1534351 manual timepiece’s face’s traditional clean style makes it quite enjoyable and not confusing to read. The Silver guilloche dial has a pair of sword-shaped Blued steel hour and minute hands that point to the painted Black Roman numeral hour markers, with “Cartier Paris” marker (also in Black) separating those pair of hands to maintain the balance of its symmetrical layout. In which, the off-center second time zone is the upper one (located at 12), while the main time dial is the lower one (located at 6).

In addition, as the watch’s whole construction is designed to be watertight to 30 meters for practical sake, you can be sure that not only it wont be harmed by slight wetness, it also wont fog through time and use.

Speaking a bit about the movement, the Calibre 9901 MC is an “in-house” mechanical movement that is personally developed by Cartier for this Tank À Vis model based on the Piaget 430MC. It is a reliable mechanical manual winding movement that is both accurate and fairly rugged. Consisting no less than 161 parts, this sophisticated rectangular manual-wound Cartier Calibre 9901 MC that smoothly beating at 21,600 alterations per hour contains 18 jewels, and provides around 40 hours of power reserve under full wind.
