A riveting, matte finish sums up the rich mahogany bracelet which is also sizable to fit your particular bone structure using an 18k gold deployment buckle. If you look closely, the fabric straps appear to be hatched together tightly like a woven knit blanket. The matte finish allows for the main part of the watch, the case to take in all the fame and glory as it shines and sparkles in the sunlight.

The entire case radiantly expels the 18k yellow-gold element in just a little over an inch diameter. The golden bezel of this timepiece extends beyond the typical rectangular structure we are used to seeing, creating an H-pattern with an extremely thick horizontal center. It is intricately strewn with an abundant array of round-cut diamonds. The octagonal crown, too, is decorated with a diamond amid the center of the cap.

A hardened mineral crystal protects the silver grained dial. Roman numerals, varying in size, shape a black oval as close to the bezel outline as the dial allows for. To make this image clearer, Cartier placed an inner black oval along the bottom of each number with notches leading towards the appropriate numeral. To brand their work of art, Cartier has been stamped across the inner top center of the dial. Two strong, steel, black, sword-like hands stretch outward from the center to slice through each numeral as time moves. The watch is powered by a Cartier caliber 157, quartz movement with an accuracy rate of less than half second drift from the actual time a day.

Do you check the weather before you leave the house on a daily basis? If not, this watch is water-resistant up to 30m, suggesting protection from everyday spills or rain dribbles. You can be confident you won’t ruin this timepiece if you happen to forget your umbrella and it’s pouring outside when the 5:00 whistle blows.

Angelina Jolie is the ultimate bad-girl gone femme amalgamation. She covers all aspects of women in both her life and on screen. This tatted up, Billy Bob loving woman has turned into a tame mother of six in a long-term relationship resulting in an engagement to Brad Pitt. Angelina can be seen wearing a similar version of the Cartier Tank Americaine Watch portraying a sultry yet sweet spirit to the thin bracelet.

Unfortunately, this watch will have to be reset every four months to keep absolute accuracy if you are trying to be on time to wherever you need to go. The quartz movement suggests the clock will set itself 15 seconds forward or backwards every month, meaning every four months you will be off an entire minute. It all depends on what your use for the watch actually is. To emit this problem, the watchmaker simply left off a second hand, so you won’t be able to tell the watch is off until the minute hand moves a minute forward or backwards.

This watch lists for $24,600, which is on the higher end of Cartier’s women’s watches. This is most likely due to the use of diamonds along the entire bezel, and to counteract the pricey case, the straps were designed in a cheaper, less-durable fabric than leather.

Overall, the Cartier Tank Americaine WB707231 women’s watch can give you either image of Angelina Jolie you wish to portray finalizing a sexy, mod expression.
