Here we have a Ladies 2000s Cartier Tank Francaise Quartz with a curvaceous 20mm brushed and polished stainless steel tank case, first introduced in 1996 the Francaise range continued the long tradition of perfectly formed Cartier timepieces. Soft rounded corners lead to a lug-to-lug length of 25mm and a case thickness of just 6mm ensuring a comfortable fit on your wrist. On the right side a hexagonal crown with a blue synthetic cabochon inset, polished flanks and vertically brushed surfaces transition with well-defined flowing lines. The domed sapphire crystal flows over the case above a crisp white dial. Radiating Roman numerals mark the hours with an inner minute track perfectly executed, thermally blued sword-shaped hands sit majestically on the dial. At 12 o’clock we have the Cartier motif completing this sophisticated two-hand timepiece. On the reverse a screwed-down case back with “Cartier” and details of the watch engraved into it, inside a Swiss Quartz movement. The watch comes paired with its integrated 15mm Cartier polished and brushed stainless steel bracelet with a screwed-in end link and a hidden double-fold clasp.
I often get asked what is the best watch for a lady, truthfully, it's whatever the lady wants! But if I had to choose, it would be this and it is exactly what I chose for my wife. The watch that is quintessential Cartier, recognisable in a classic watch and timeless is the best of ways. I wouldn't hesitate on this one, a true gem for any lady out there.
In 1847 Louis-Francois Cartier founded Cartier in Paris, France. He quickly established himself within the aristocracy of society. In 1903 he created their first men's wristwatch, inspired by his pilot friend Alberto Santos-Dumont, who called it the Santos. In 1907 Cartier began a partnership with Edmond Jaeger of the pre-eminent watch brand Jaeger-LeCoultre. Jaeger agreed to become the exclusive supplier of watch movements for Cartier. In 1917 they debuted the Tank. Their watches were so popular that copies soon appeared to counteract this. Cartier introduced reference numbers to each watch. In 1919 they introduced the Tank which was inspired by the robust American tank used in the first world war. It has been famously worn by many over the years including Andy Warhol, Alain Delon, Clarke Gable, Catherine Deneuve and Duke Ellington. The early watches were all handmade in France, with movements by Jaeger. In 1972, a group of investors led by financial wizard Joseph Kanoui bought the company. In 1973 we saw the first “Must de Cartier” boutique open in Biarritz, followed by one in Singapore. During the 1980s they acquired several non-jewellery businesses such as Beaume et Mercier in 1988 and Piaget and Alderbert in 1989.
