The Cartier Tank Americaine W2601556

The Cartier Tank Americaine W2601556 women’s watch has a subdued elegance and would be a luxurious addition to any woman’s jewelry collection. Cartier is known for their brilliance in creating elegant women’s jewelry that is as fashionable as they are tasteful and useful. Its comfortable brown leather strap fits nicely around the wrist and will have you and others stopping to admire its beauty while keeping the time.

This watch retails at US $9,600 but a quick search via Google yields some significant discounts. You can find this watch for as low as $7,300. It is an expensive piece but it is well worth its cost if you are in the market to spend that amount of money on such a fine piece of jewelry.

This model of the Tank Americaine watch features a brown leather strap with a turtle shell like texture. It also has an 18 karat gold case with a silver dial. It has Roman numerals with minute markers around the inner ring and blue colored sword shaped hands that add to its distinctive taste of class. It also features an 18 karat gold crown. This watch is definitely a luxury watch with its design’s heavy emphasis on gold. The leather strap allows for easy adjustment on different sized wrists but also adds to a subdued feel for such a luxurious item. This watch is water resistant up to 100 feet and has a scratch resistant crystal so even an item as fine as this can weather some roughness.

Since Cartier’s very beginnings, finely crafted jewelry has been its focus with a wide range of royal customers even becoming the official purveyor of jewelry to King Edward VII of England in 1904. While this bit of historical information may not mean anything in particular to this watch, it does provide some insight into the way that Cartier crafts and views watches. They are dedicated to excellence for watches as both timepieces and as jewelry. Their watches are practical and elegant. The Tank Americaine W2601556 fits perfectly within Cartier’s long history of creating great masterpieces of jewelry. It will make a fine addition to your collection.

The price will automatically put many people out of purchasing this watch which really is this watch’s main sticking point. However, if you do have the budget for this kind of watch and are in the market for a fine piece of jewelry that conveys luxury and class, the Tank Americaine W2601556 deserves to be considered.
