Starting with the two most exclusive variants, we have a burgundy version in platinum with a white dial offered with a burgundy leather strap and is limited to 150 pieces.
The other limited edition comes with a gold case, with a dial in the same tone and which is offered with a green leather strap and the number of units available are 250 pieces.
Finally, we have a current variant in stainless steel, which is presented all in black, extending from the case, passing through the dial and ending in the leather strap.
All variants share the 43.5mm case, a dial of growing squares pattern, as well as the manual-winding 430 MC movement.

Cartier Tank Must
After last year, when the W&W was also presented in three colours, this year the brand decides to go back to the basics and bring it in black, where the clean dial is accompanied by the leather strap in tone, or vice versa. On the dial, there is only room for the central hands and the discreet brand inscriptions at 12 o’clock and the tiny “Swiss Made” at 6 o’clock.
The new Cartier Tank Must is available in a steel case and in two sizes and both models are powered by a quartz movement.

Cartier Tank Louis Cartier
There are two novelties introduced in the Tank Louis Cartier collection, one in red that almost looks like burgundy and the other in anthracite grey, with dials that present different visual effects in the tones produced due to the new electrochemical engraving technique.
The two new watches come with a large case and while the red variant comes with a yellow gold case, the anthracite grey version comes with a rose gold case.
The dial of the watches appears with a crescent pattern of squares, hands in the same tone of the case and Roman numerals in the position of the four cardinal points.
Inside, the manual-winding movement 1917 MC operates and the watches are offered with a leather strap in the same tone as the dial.

Cartier Privé Tank Chinoise
In 1922, the Cartier Tank Chinoise was born out of Europe’s strong interest in East Asian arts and today, 100 years later, it reappears now in the form of six new models.
The six new models, which now feature a rectangular case instead of the previous square case, are divided into two categories, one with the traditional dial with Roman numerals and which is offered in platinum, rose gold or yellow gold, each of which is limited to 150 pieces. Then there is a second category that comes with skeletonizing dials with thin decorative bars decorated with red and black/blue lacquer in three variants: yellow gold, platinum and diamond-set platinum, with the first two limited to 100 pieces and the last to 20.
Inside, they are powered by the manual-winding 430 MC movement that offers up to 38 hours of power reserve. All six variants are offered with a black leather strap.

Cartier Masse Mystérieuse
Born in 1912 under the name of Model A, knowing over the years some (few) interactions now appear on an almost transparent dial, where all the movement appears arranged inside the oscillating weight, whose ingenious movement that visually seems totally disconnected (with the crown as the most glaring example of this) is based on six sapphire discs.
The watch is offered in a 43.5mm platinum case with a total of 30 pieces, but also with a baguette set or a full diamond set with a platinum bracelet, the latter two limited to 10 pieces each.
Inside, it operates a self-winding movement Caliber 9801 MC that offers up to 42 hours of power reserve.

Cartier Pasha de Cartiers
Cartier decides to expand the collection with the introduction of some new models, and the variations range from the different materials used, from steel to gold, as well as the complications introduced, from the simple dial with three hands to the Tourbillon.
