Cartier presented a Tank equipped with its in-house calibre 1904 MC-PS automatic movement. The new Swiss Cartier Tank MC Replica– for “Manufacture Cartier” – features similar styling to the Tank Americaine, but with a wider, more squarish case.
The Tank MC Replica Watch features a date window and a sub-seconds at six o’clock; the “PS” in 1904 MC-PS stands for “petite seconde“.The 1904 MC has a 48 hour power reserve thanks to twin barrels, as well as a highly efficient bidirectional “Magic Lever” winding mechanism.
Available in steel or rose gold, the Cartier Replica case measures 44 mm by 34.3 mm, with a height of 9.5 mm, giving it wrist presence without being overly large. It has an open case back revealing the 1904 MC movement.
Several dial versions will be available – silver or black for the steel, and silver or chocolate for the rose gold. Both dials are in the typical Fake Cartier style, with a guilloche centre and sword hands. The fact that the date disc is a matching black shade on the steel model is a welcome touch.
