It is apropos that such a classic and elegant woman like Michelle Obama would be drawn to the most classic and elegant watches in the world. Cartier seems to be the choice of the first lady, and with good reason. Cartier has been the epitome of style for decades, and their creations don’t get any more traditional than the Tank. Cartier’s Tank was originally introduced back in 1912. It has seen many re-releases, but little changes. The Tank is Cartier and definitely still one of their more popular timepieces. The first lady was photographed wearing her Cartier Tank, for her official Whitehouse portrait. The people at Cartier couldn’t be more pleased. Michelle Obama will certainly go down in history as a classic fashion icon, already compared to the legendary Jackie O for her style and grace. The Cartier Tank befits such a lady.
The Cartier Tank collection comes in many styles. The Cartier midsized Tank Solo in stainless-steel, the Tank Americaine, which is in 18 carat white gold, to other steel and 18 carat gold models. The variety is wide and diverse, the constant is the Cartier name. This is a fine, luxury Swiss watchmaker, which has a solid reputation. Hey, if it’s got Michelle Obama’s attention, maybe you should take another look.
