On the occasion of the 70th Cannes Film Festival Monica Bellucci, Cannes Film Festival’s Mistress of Ceremonies, chose Cartier High Jewelry collection. She wore a pair of earrings in platinum set with two briolette-cut diamonds totalling 6.07 carats as well as a necklace in platinum set with seven briolette-cut diamonds totalling 19.50 carats, yellow briolette-cut diamonds, yellow pear-shaped diamonds, onyx and brilliant-cut diamonds.
The Cartier Tank Solo XL Automatic watch was introduced in 2012 and added a larger, mechanical solution to the quartz Tank Solo. The Cartier Tank Solo XL Automatic originally featured the automated Cartier 049 calibre, which will be an ETA 2892. But, Cartier has confirmed with us that when the Cartier Clé introduced the in-house 1847 MC movement in 2015 a lot of fundamental versions were fitted with the new movement – like the Cartier Tank Solo XL Automatic. The 1847 MC movement is seemingly positioned as a workhorse to take the area of ETA moves found in a range of Cartier collections, and with a diameter of 25.6mm, it is going to fit about everywhere an ETA 2992 or 2824 would. Bidirectional automatic winding, 42 hours of power reserve, working at 4Hz with central seconds and date are welcome modern features and appropriate for an entry level set. The Cartier 1847 MC seems to largely receive just basic decoration, but you won’t find it here anyhow due to the good caseback of the Cartier Tank Solo XL Automatic. An in-house movement should include interest and value for fans, and more so since the switch out of a sourced movement wasn’t accompanied by a change in price.Standard to get a modern luxury watch, antireflective sapphire crystal protects the dial, and the crown with its synthetic spinel cabochon is basically unchanged from the earliest Tanks. The dial is exactly what Cartier calls silvered opaline, and it supplies a satiny background for its black Cartier Roman numerals without any shiny reflections to hamper legibility.
