Cartier MC Skeleton

Cartier has recently announced a new addition to its famous Tank watch collection. The latest Tank MC watch is this stunning skeletonised version, pictured above, in addition to a pink gold and a slightly more affordable steel version.

The Tank MC Skeleton is a little larger than the other two versions, with its palladium octagonal shaped case measuring in at 43.90mm x 39.10mm. The watch is driven by the 9611MC calibre movement which was originally developed for the Cartier Santos Skeleton. The movement features a power reserve of 72 hours and beats at a steady 28,800 vph.

The Tank MC Skeleton also includes a sapphire crystal on the front and back, with excellent readability provided for the generous time display on the extra large dial.
