I’d wear it with shorts and t-shirt. Why? Cause I can

Jeffrey KRUPA says:

“Black tie” with a brown strap?
No. Just no.
(You probably shouldn’t be wearing a watch at all for such events actually.)

David Meier says:

I love watches and bourbon by chance. I believe that’s a Van Winkle 12 Year on his bar of his left shoulder. Very nice.

Andrew Nadermann says:

What a well done series of ads. In love with the Tank.

Archer says:

I really enjoyed Mr. Hranek’s book: A Man & His Watch.
I’m hoping that he will write a follow-up title.

Mattia Talleri says:

Is a Tank Solo or a Tank Louis Cartier?

juan hubard says:

do talking watches with ed sheeran

Adrian Gunawan says:

The only tank I would wear is a basculante

Mark Waggoner says:

I don’t need a watch to feel put together..

Rich Buddy says:

This is a woman’s watch. Dr. Phil is the only man that can get away with wearing Cartier.

Jared Fiala says:

What drink is that?

Charles Yeung says:

Excellent story. Can someone tell me what jacket mr. Hranek is wearing.

eco8gator says:

Does it have a plastic movement holder?

Gabriel KSS says:

Obviously Matt would help himself with a negroni. Cheers!

pretty effete fellow there

Tom bryan says:

The crown is embarrassing, it’s so feminine.

Matt Ashe says:

What’s the drink he was mixing?

MaxPDavies says:

I know it is, but this really really comes off as an advert rather than honest content.

Dan says:

If a man is going to wear a Cartier, he might as well carry a purse too.

Am I the only one noticing the Pappy Van Winkle?

Chad Chaumont says:

Love that watch!

Matt Phelan says:

Old man’s watch.

M Riley says:

I would like one in yellow gold, large 33 x 25mm, and a black strap deployant clasp. Unfortunately they don’t offer it in yellow gold, mechanical, NO date, a stronger looking crown like the Tank Francaise, with the guilloché dial in the current collection. Preferably with Paris printed under cartier, which makes it look a bit different imo. The only version that comes close to what I want was on the Priviee collection in a platinum case. Those are hard to find and expensive for a simple time only watch. Personally Cartier is over priced. Yes I know it’s a timeless classic still relevant to modern times and all that good stuff. However, for a small dress watch at over $9-18k I rather get an entry level Breguet, or Patek Philippe Calatrava in gold with Roman numeral dials. The Tank is so iconic I would think twice to choose between a Cartier and much better brands like Patek or Rolex vintage versions of the Tank. Because Cartier is synonymous with the rectangle case design, I see everyone else as a homage to the Tank even though Cartier movements are inferior to high end movements offered for the same price of a Tank. All this or settle for a Quartz Tank Solo, save some money, and still have funds for something else….

Gary Abrahams says:

Sorry no. Too feminine
