Welcome back to Wrist Game or Crying Shame. This week we put on our fancy duds with a look at the best quality replica Cartier Tank Basculante 2390. But first…
It turns out that the once unpopular Omega Dynamic Chronograph is a rip-snorting cultish success these days. Despite its initial sales flop, a full 69% of you favored this low calorie Omega. If those 800 or so positive voters had only bought one of these watches, perhaps it would still be in the lineup today. This week, we are moving onwards and way upwards with a look at a watch from one of the most luxe brands arounds: Cartier. Enter the blue hands copy Cartier Tank Basculante 2390.
Visiting a Cartier boutique
I often talk about my formative years in South Florida. And honestly, what is South Florida without a little copy Cartier? I guess it was sometime during the latter half of the ’90s when I wandered into the Cartier boutique at Boca Town Center with my Dad. My Mom was off with my sister somewhere and we decided to pop in and have a look. Now, if you’ve never been to a luxury fake Cartier, you’ll know that “popping in” is a bit of a joke. A stern security guard decides whether you are worthy of entry. That day, thankfully, we were. The watch we looked at happened to be the Tank Basculante.
The Cartier Tank Basculante and the Reverso
During this period, JLC was hitting it hard with their Reverso. After twenty years of cheesy quartz glamor, it seemed that the public was ready for mechanical watches and history. Much like the Reverso, Cartier decided to reissue its Tank Basculante. And similar to the JLC, this blue leather strap Cartier replica watch was available in quartz or mechanical. It was easy to pass this watch off as a bit of a JLC pretender because it folded into its case for protection. However, a deeper look tells us that this watch actually debuted back in the early ’30s. In addition to the ability to hide the dial, the watch could also act as a desk clock when it was mounted at an angle. In person, the whole case design is a bit of a beautiful marvel.
