Around this time last year, all anybody could talk about – if they happened to be talking about Cartier – were the new Must de Cartier replica watches for sale, or the “Musts” as they’re now colloquially referred to. There were three in total: One red, one blue, and one green – each harkening back to 1980s veneer days when the brand released affordable remixes on the hit Tank model in a gold-plated case with a minimalist dial layout. The 2021 editions took minimalism to new heights (or is it depths?) by removing any kind of markings, save for the Cartier wordmark.
While these were neat and interesting takes on the Must history, some of us (myself included) were left wondering if these wouldn’t have looked better in gold. I mean, everything best Cartier fake watches looks better in gold. At the same time, I wondered – wouldn’t it be neat if there was a black dial option.
Cartier must have been listening (see what I did there?) because right on cue for 2022, the brand added to the Must line with new – steel – black dial models in the exact same configuration as the colorful examples.
But that wasn’t all.
Almost hidden within the Tank Louis Cartier collection, which included two interestingly executed dial variations in grey and red, was a yellow gold Tank LC with a sparse, minimal black dial. In fact, it’s the same black dial that we see in the Must line, only … it ain’t a Must.
Yellow gold. Black dial. Cartier. Tank. That’s it, that’s the perfect replica Cartier watches. When we first got word this was coming, we knew it would get folks talking. Sure this isn’t quite as accessible as the steel Musts when it comes to price, but it does something entirely different that’s worth appreciating (aside from the watch itself).
As mentioned, past iterations of the Must de Cartier line endeavored to satisfy one’s craving for gold by offering gold vermeil which, in turn, brought down the price. Brand-new, those Swiss made Cartier copy watches would have been as luscious as the real thing. But take a trip through eBay, or your local second-hand watch shop, and you’ll find that these luxury Cartier replica watches don’t age great. Like anything that’s plated, they deteriorate creating a sort of pseudo golden steel shell with cracks and imperfections all around. Some might call that patina, but even I think that’s a stretch.
Gold cheap Cartier fake watches are aspirational, it’s something you work your way up to. My hunch is that many former buyers of plated Musts, are ready to take the plunge into solid gold – and this new Tank LC is ready and waiting. I like this release for two reasons. The first is this sort of maturation of the Must aesthetic, and not confining the design to steel or within the literal Must de Cartier line. The second is an extension of the first. For those whose entry-point into Carter was the 2022 replica Cartier Tank Must watches of yore, I say kudos to Cartier for taking this watch and placing it firmly within the Tank collection, proper. For those buyers, this represents a graduation from Must to Tank … officially.
So what are we getting with this watch? Well, as always with a Tank, you get the pure Cartier wrist experience. It’s reserved, but not too fancy. This is the kind of watch that works for a man or a woman. The Cartier super clone watches wholesale store has chameleon-like qualities which is what has kept the Tank relevant for over 100 years.
This is the kind of watch that blends fashion with horology. It isn’t necessarily the most functional of Cartier replica watches site. I mean, just look at the dial. Unless you’re setting it at 12:00 or 6:30 on the dot, it’s kind of hopeless to get an accurate reading of the time (which isn’t to say the watch, powered by the 1917 MC isn’t accurate). It’s sort of the ultimate “it’s a quarter of,” or “half-past” piece. In many ways, it could serve a worthy black tie watch for that exact reason, because it’s technically quite offensive to check the time in black tie scenarios.
I think of the new black dial best quality fake Cartier Tank LC watches as an abstract piece of watchmaking. In steel, it’s cute. In gold, it’s full-on bold. But there’s something undeniably attractive about the sparse dial, and marriage of black against the gold case. This watch speaks for itself – and I think it’ll be every bit as big a hit as last year’s color palette of Musts was.
