Cartier Tank Solo Mens Watch W1018355

When you think of leather, you reference it to a tough-looking jacket or a scandalous body suit worn by female pop singers. But the Cartier Tank Solo Men’s Watch W1018355 will have you men re-considering your leather clichés, as this timepiece gives the material a classic twist. Men who prefer a finer accessory for keeping the time will appreciate its overall polished and professional qualities.

While most watches are constructed with linked bands or bracelets, this one makes a statement with alligator leather straps, smooth and comfortable when wearing. Complimenting this is a rectangular-shaped watch face made of crystal and a silver stainless steel case finished with satin. The Roman numeral hour markers add to its old-fashioned taste, as do the blue pointed hour and minute hands. Inside the numerals is the border of a rectangle displaying tick marks indicating each minute and bolder ones on each hour. Its elegance is taken another step further with the sapphire cabochon on the crown set. Could you ask for anything more? Truth is, anything more would taint its wonder. The watch is secured on your wrist with a deployment clasp.

According to those who have purchased this watch, you will not be disappointed. For them the piece still appears brand new and felt it was well worth their money spent for a designer item. If you feel like circular watches are easier to read, or roman numerals aren’t your friend, this may not be the watch for you. This could easily however, be one that you wear for the sake of looking stylish, or you can fool people into thinking you are stylish while having a watch purely for function!
