The Launch

Cartier's Tank Anglaise

Created in 1917 as a rectangular alternative to the elaborately curved watches popular at the time, the Cartier Tank has proved one of the last century's most iconic watches. So when a new one is launched, it's kind of a big deal.

The Tank Anglaise, launched last night in London is only the third version attributed to a particular region. Thirty two years ago the Americans got their own version - the elegant Tank Américaine. Then the French got in on the act in 1996 with the Tank Française (you're probably starting to see a pattern). Fortunately, Cartier has now put things right with a Tank to call our own.

Available in three sizes and three shades of gold, the Tank Anglaise retains the classic lines and simplicity of its forefathers, but with a bulkier case than its French cousin, and  a more robust feel than the Américaine. A masculine watch for the English then. Our pick is the white gold pictured above.

Available from June, from £4,700 to £103,000, cartier.co.uk
