Originally dubbed the Cintrée, this thin, elongated case first observed in 1921 mimics a person's wrist. In 1989 Cartier re-introduced this case shape under the nomenclature replica breitling bentley Tank Américaine, named as such because this watch is believed to live somewhere between a formal and casual setting. In other words, a very “American” way of being, according to Cartier. The Tank Américaine is still in production today and early/rare examples are highly sought after. The Tank Basculante I bet you’ve seen one of these before, thought it was cool, but didn’t know it had a name or its own following. The Tank Basculante was first patented in 1932, and its fold-over replica breitlin navitimer case make it one of the most interesting of all Tanks. This is one of my favorite of all vintage Cartier pieces. The Tank Oblique dates to 1963 and features a slightly rotated dial. But it’s more than just the dial, it’s as if someone pulled the upper right hand corner higher and the case stretched into a parallelogram. There has been a re-make or two of these and I happen to think they make excellent dress watches. This is the one you all know, and well, likely don’t really love repiica cartier santos. It was launched in 1996, and is surely one of Cartier's most iconic designs. Still, if there was one absolutely ubiquitous Cartier timepiece, it’s the Tank Française. It’s beautiful, (relatively) affordable, and a true icon, but at best, ETA-powered, at worst, quartz. 'Nuff said.

The dimensions of the pocket were taken from our Italian-made leather watch pouch ensuring that it would be the right size for a range of watches (from 35 mm vintage dress watches to larger modern chronographs.) The key – and this is something that we stressed repiica cartier santos multiple times throughout this project – was that the watch pocket be configured in such a way that it does not affect the drape of the material over the body. To achieve this, F.S.C. tailors crafted each pocket by hand from a thin yet durable Bemberg fabric and attached it to the standard breast pocket for lateral support. Since the pocket replica cartier Ballon Bleu isn't attached to the canvas, or major seams, effects on draping are minimized. As our focus was to create an effortless, elegant sportcoat, the overall structure is relaxed, with cap sleeve construction that allows the sleeve head (which is set in place by hand) to rest softly atop the shoulder. The body is half-canvassed and half-lined to maximize wearability in multiple climates. Though the fabric has a soft, supple feel, front-pinch darts add a tailored shape around the waist. The outer fabric is an incredibly soft 7.5 ounce, 100% worsted cashmere from the well-regarded Lanificio di Pray mill in Vercelli, Italy. In this unstructured sportcoat, the soft worsted cashmere drapes across the body easily and is wrinkle-resistant (an essential trait when tailoring is subjected to less than ideal situations during travel). We made only 21 of the Traveler Sportcoat to reduce the likelihood http://www.attrinity.com that you'll encounter another watch enthusiast wearing a navy blue single-breasted sportcoat. (Okay, you'll definitely bump into other people wearing navy sportcoats, but most likely they'll be suffering under the weight of an extra watch in the pocket of their trousers whereas yours will be securely, and safely, near your heart.)
