Yellow gold or white gold and straps - two more options to choose from while selecting your Cartier women's gold watch. In our previous post, we began exploring the choices available when considering pink gold cases and strap watches; as promised, we continue that exploration with pieces available in other varieties of gold cases.
Cartier and 18k Yellow Gold
While pink gold has its charm, some of us just tend towards the natural sunniness of yellow gold. When it comes to ladies watches, especially in yellow gold, a classic Cartier watch is one with a rectangular dial. And if you tend to the classic appearance, there are four styles to choose your best look from, all of which come from the Tank collection.
The Tank Louis Cartier Small model has the distinction of hailing from a line that was worn by Louis Cartier himself, which set the style for all Tank watches. This slender timepiece is set in a silver-grained dial with a mineral crystal in which blue-steel hands sweep across a Roman numeral display. The watch is rounded out by a circular-grained crown in 18k yellow gold set with a sapphire cabochon, and an alligator-skin strap paired with an 18k yellow gold ardillon (or tang) buckle. The discreet, compact appearance makes it perfect for day-wear while still having the style to transition into social occasions as well.

The Tank Solo Small watch is considered the most modern piece from the Tank collection. While remaining true to the original inspiration behind the Tank series, the Tank Solo model sees a number of variations across the case materials, dial and motifs - a truly distinctive piece to have in one's possession! It comes with a pale silver opaline dial with a sapphire crystal, an 18k yellow gold circular-grained crown set with a synthetic spinel cabochon, and an alligator-skin strap paired with a gold ardillon buckle. Unlike other Tank watches, Tank Solo has a steel case back rather than one in solid gold.

Much like the Tank Americaine Small model watch we discussed in the previous post, there is also a yellow gold version of the same watch, which comes with a silver-grained dial, mineral crystal, an 18k yellow gold octagonal crown with a faceted sapphire, and an alligator-skin strap with an 18k yellow gold ardillon buckle.

Similarly, there is also a yellow gold version of the Tank Anglaise Small watch which comes with a nine-sided crown set with a sapphire directly in a flinqué, silver lacquered dial, offset by a shiny brown alligator leather strap paired with an 18k yellow gold ardillon buckle.

If you prefer a Cartier watch with a round case however, the Ronde Solo de Cartier Small model watch will call your name. Maintaining the signature features of the Ronde de Cartier line, this watch has a cleanness to it that makes it perfect for women who are looking for classy, understated elegance as a finishing touch to their look. Set in a silver opaline dial with Roman and Arabic numerals and a sapphire crystal, the watch has an 18 yellow gold circular-grained crown set with a synthetic spinel cabochon, a round scales alligator-skin strap, and an 18k gold ardillon buckle. As with the Tank Solo, this watch also has a steel case back rather than solid gold.

18k White Gold and Leather Straps
A final combination comes with 18k White Gold, which is a good choice for ladies of extremely subtle and understated tastes – those who want the quality and class inherent with precious metals.
Much like its pink gold sibling, there is also a white gold version of the Santos-Dumont Small watch. This maison icon is set in a silver grained dial with a sapphire crystal and Roman numerals, offset by an 18k white gold crown set with a faceted sapphire, an alligator-skin strap, and an adjustable 18k white gold deployant buckle.

Similarly, the Tank Americaine Small model (which has been explored above as well as in the previous post) also comes in a white gold case with a silver-grained dial, mineral crystal and an 18k white gold octagonal crown set with a faceted sapphire. Its alligator-skin strap is paired with an 18k white gold ardillon buckle.

And the final candidate is the white gold version of the Tank Anglaise Small watch, sister to the pink gold and yellow gold pieces discussed earlier. This watch also comes with a nine-sided crown set with a sapphire in a flinqué silvered lacquered dial with a sapphire crystal, and a shiny black alligator leather strap paired with an 18k rhodiumized white gold ardillon buckle.

Each of these charming timepieces are powered by a quartz movement, so there's definitely more to them than just a pretty face! Being water-resistant upto 30 meters, said pretty face will also sail through energetic pool and beach parties without a problem.
