That is lovely
I went to the Cartier exhibition a couple years back at Design Museum.
Never knew the tank watch was named after a war machine. 😎
I don't know the lug width yet, but that sounds ideal. Do you have some photos and a price please?
Thanks she doesn't really go in for jewellery so I'm hoping this will win her over 😅
I wind my manual watch every day before i go to bed. Wind untill resistance.
Free if it fits. Will take some photos when I'm back home.
Oh you are kind, how about a forum donation instead? (If it fits)
That is really lovely. I'd keep the strap, it looks to be in perfectly good condition, and it is a bit of a personal choice.
Please remind her that it needs to be kept away from water and humid environments. It seems obvious when you know, but not so obvious to everyone else :)
That is really lovely. I bought my wife a cartier Santos automatic years ago, something she had always wanted and even though i have access to many more brands now she won't part with it.
I may have a box you can have or at the very least a suede service pouch , will have a look and let you know.
Forum comes through again! Great buy spotter.
This do for starters ? Pm your address and will post out.
top lads. lovely cartier. jealous.
Thank you very much indeed, that is very kind of you I will send you a PM now and make a forum donation too.
@freddo thank you for the tip, I'll be sure to let her know. I will probably take @Stonehedge up on his offer, and then keep the original strap too so we have options. Worst come to the worst I can just give the new one back or pass it on on here if she decides its not right.
Don't get too excited, have you checked if it'll fit yet?
It's in the post, will check next week. Thank you.
Jesus, this is cringe worthy. It's on the money about steel right now but how it is just referred to as "Nautilus". Aquanaut all day for me.
Jesus. Boardroom line is awful. Gross gross gross!
Managed to mark the bracelet on my speedy already. Kind of gutted but not sure if I should just expect it and get over it. Anything I can do myself to make them less noticeable?
Poke yourself in the eyes with a rusty link remover...
Morniiing. Its Friday, army duty today...
Careful the enemy doesn't see that glinting on your wrist....
hahha true. should have wore the blackout one!
My advice is to consider it patina/character and make your peace with it. You should see my Rolex bracelet after a few months. They scratch very easily.
I think it’s to do with the type of steel and the finishing. I have had Seiko bracelets (and cases) which they apply a hard coating to called Diashield, and it works wonders to reduce scuffs and scratches. But it doesn’t look as nice (it slightly dulls the colour) and can’t be re-polished, which is why they don’t use it on Grand Seiko (also scratch magnets apparently).
My Friday shot, from last week.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
