Here’s another watch that’s no stranger to the pages of Fratello. I told the story of how I ended up winning my perfect replica Cartier Tank Solo in an Instagram photography competition. But why do I like it enough to include it in my five-watch collection? Well, it’s simple. Like the Panerai, this watch is an outlier in a group of otherwise rather similar watches. It also serves a very specific purpose as it’s the one dress watch in this collection. Now, I don’t dress up often, but when the occasion does arise, not just any old watch will do. The brilliant thing about the luxury fake Cartier Tank Solo is that it takes dressing up just as well as dressing down. Giving it a sportier look is just a strap-swap away.
This best 1:1 replica Cartier Tank is also the second quartz watch in this lineup. Would I go with a mechanical version instead? No, I honestly wouldn’t. I quite enjoy that every time I grab this one, whether from the safe or my sock drawer, I know it’s running on time.
There’s no need to wind and set it. I just strap it to my wrist, and I’m ready to rock and roll. The last thing left to do with this cheap fake Cartier is to have something engraved on the back. I promised I’d never sell it, so I might as well commit to making it mine. Hopefully, someday soon, inspiration will strike, and I’ll find the perfect memento to have etched onto the case back.
