I'm planning on buying a cartier watch.
s/s tank franc... but not sure which size to get.

the small or the medium? such a dilemma...:shrugs:

i tried on both today, but left empty handed

please help ladies! what are your thoughts on the small and medium ??


*i usually wear a movado watch (24mm)
and for reference, i am 5ft 2 & weigh about 105lbs.

With your frame I think either one would look good on you. I personally like larger watches and I think the medium would look really nice. However it is a matter of personal choice. How did you feel in each size? Did either one speak more to you? I am assuming no b/c you left empty-handed. You could try on other watch styles (from Cartier and other comparable brands) and maybe that will give you a better feel for what your personal taste is.

Keep us posted on your purchase; it's exciting to buy a nice watch!

I had the men's small Tank Francaise a few years ago and loved it. Sold that one, wore Swatch for six years, and recently got the La Dona s/s with the larger face and am VERY happy with it. I prefer larger watches, though.

Thanks for the input. At the moment, I am leaning more torwards the mid size.
But could someone clarify please... the midsize tank is not marketed as a woman's or men's watch. is this correct?

At the moment, I am leaning more towards the mid size.

But could someone clarify for me.. is the "Cartier Midsize Francaise Watch #51011Q3" the same as a watch simply advertised as cartier tank 51011Q3?

I am thinking of ordering online, and am a little confused..

Thanks again ;)

One thought - the medium comes with date display, but the small doesn't. For that reason I would prefer the medium myself. Good luck! Gorgeous watch.

I recently bought Santos Demoiselle(small). I'm 5'4 and 100Lbs, with very thin wrists(5"). Small looks better than midsize on me, even two of SA said so, my husband thinks otherwise though.

I have pretty thin wrists (5.5") and when I end up purchasing the Tank Francaise I'd get the midsize. I dislike this same watch in the smaller style... looks old to me. jmo!
I think the midsize is a good size- not too large or too small and has a current feel to it.

whatever size you end up with, it'll be a classic so you really can't go wrong. sizing is a personal preference but the watch & style is timeless!
