Michel Herbelin Tank

If you know me, you know my passion for vintage dress watches, particularly those designed by Cartier. I think that they are, although astronomically expensive, some of the most alluring wristwatches in the world. These designs have been so praised that manufactures all the way up the line to Patek Philippe, have adopted them as their own. This example, signed Michel Herbelin, is as beautiful as its direct design inspiration, the famous Cartier Tank Louis, and markedly more approachable. With its super well preserved gold plated case, blued steel leaf shaped hands and crisp white dial embodies all that is classic dress design. Although seemingly small, it carries tremendous presence on my wrist – actually even better than most vintage Cartier's. This watch is perfect from sweater to tuxedo, I know it'll never fall from style or fail to impress.
