Very nice selection. Good options on round/square dial, stainless/gold, and strap/bracelet.

Thanks PZ. The Cle de Cartier in person appears to be oval and has unique curved lugs so that the watch is super comfortable on. My picture taking is poor and unfortunately wasn't able to capture the real beauty of these watches. For example, the Cle de Cartier has gorgeous raised deep blue Roman numerals. All of the watches have very nice blued-steel hands. I obviously didn't capture those and other nuances very well in this picture.

These were my test cases for rep gold watches. I think the rose and yellow gold is not quite like the real deal, but not bad.

Do you prefer the Ballon Bleu or the
Cle de Cartier on the wrist?
That’s a tough one, they both look and feel great on the wrist. As a general rule I prefer bracelets to straps and I also tend to find lighter, thinner watches more comfortable than ones that are thick and heavy. The Ballon Bleu I have is a quartz and the Cle de Cartier is an automatic, so I’m not really comparing apples to apples here. But, I think I prefer the Cle. Of course I happen to be wearing it at the moment, so this might be a case of love the one you’re with.

I absolutely will. I am looking to pick her up a Tank solo in SS.

Is k11 the super rep for the ladies version of the tank ?

It was probably the best rep avaialable of the Tank Solo when I bought it but, there very well may be a better version now. Ask a TD for the best available and perhaps check out a TD’s website, like TrustyTime, to compare what’s available.
