While this suggestion could offer several outcomes, pick whatever Tank you want, but it has to be a Cartier Tank in yellow gold. Smaller, bigger, vintage, new – I don’t care. You want a killer, buy-it-once-and-wear-it-forever dress watch, buy a Tank and get back to your somewhat more stylish existence. From quartz to automatic, Solo to Américaine to lovely Louis (and even the related Santos Dumont), you can’t go wrong with the subtle but entirely confident and ever-stylish design of the Tank. For my wrist, something a bit on the larger size would have me quickly finding ways to dress up far more often. New, the quartz Tank Louis Cartier is available from Cartier, at just a hair under $10,000.
