Cartier steel watches – these are what come to mind when we think of the most durable watches that are available in the Cartier universe. Being a Cartier, of course, they naturally also embody all the class that is inherent to the luxury brand; bet you never equated steel and luxury! But Cartier found a way.
Why do we want Cartier steel watches?
Sometimes, as much as we love diamonds and gold, and how well they go together, what we really want is a simple, classic everyday watch that will last.
Now, let's find the steel-cased watch that fits you! To help your journey along, we'll cover the price as well, excluding sales tax. All prices listed are current as of May 2014. Nothing like laying out all the details to make it clear how perfect this is for you!
The Tank Solo Small model watches are a unique take on the original Tank series, thanks to variations like a pink dial, a gold or steel case, and a panther or python motif to the strap. These are ideal for women who like the contrast of a small watch with a fairly large, rectangular dial. If you like the all-steel look, then this watch (priced at $2,840) is available with a steel bracelet, a pale silver opaline dial, and a steel circular-grained crown set with a blue synthetic spinel cabochon. On the other hand, if you like the classic look of a steel case and leather strap, your alternative (available for $2,590) comes with a round-scale alligator skin strap and a steel double adjustable deployant buckle instead. Both these watches have the panache for different occasions along with the durability to gracefully weather extended periods of wear and less than delicate conditions!

The Tank Francaise Small model watches were the first in the Tank collection to sport chain-link bracelets – a style that many women wear well and most often! More angular than the Tank Solo, these watches have cases that mimic the style of the bracelet which makes it a great selection for women who like nice, clean lines with no fuss. Available for $4,300, this watch is paired with a steel bracelet, a silver-grained dial and a steel octagonal crown set with a synthetic spinel cabochon. The same watch is available with a pink mother-of-pearl dial for $4,550. The Montre Tank Francaise Petit model comes with a diamond dial and is priced at $6,100.

This watch is priced at $5,000 and has a silver flinqué dial offset by a nine-sided crown set with a synthetic spinel cabochon, rounded out by a polished steel bracelet with satin-finished central links.

Saving the best for last, you can also go for a steel bracelet and diamond model (available for $6,550) that comes with a 12-zone flinqué dial, silvered with a sunray finish and lacquer, and set with 11 brilliant-cut diamonds.
