Tank Francaise

Recommended Posts


Hi' nice to see a Cartier forum.. I' thinking of purchasing a mens Tank Francaise either in SS or bi metal...Which is the best movement the quartz or automatic mechanical.. Thing is I've had problems with battery leakage in a quartz & I'm nervous about getting another one

Well the quartz v mechanical basically comes down to what you prefer.

To sum it up very briefly:

Quartz watches are more accurate and cheaper.

Mechanical watches have superior craftsmanship, are not quite as accurate and are more expensive.

In regards to battery leakage. If you change the battery every two years you should have no problem with leakage at all.

Personally I would go for mechanical. You are already spending a large sum of money for a Cartier watch therefore you might as well spend a little bit more money and get the mechanical.

At the end of the day there is no 'best movement' only what you prefer.
