Cartier French Roadster

Cartier hit it big in 1919 with its classic Tank Watch--arguably the most influential watch of the early 20th century--that was designed by Louis Cartier in tribute to the Allied tank commanders who helped dig France out of a hole in WWI. While the Tank is still one of Cartier's most popular designs, the Roadster is the right emblem for the automotive age. The simple yet masculine face shape is accented by elegant numerals, Cyclops crystal, automatic date at 3 o'clock, glow-in-the-dark hands and interchangeable bracelets and wristbands. Water resistant to 330 feet, it also comes in a chronograph version starting at $6,000.
