Response to Timex Tank Pictures
Yep, Cartier is a bit "sensitive" about anyone referring to other than one of their watches as a "Tank" watch. I think I even read that eBay will not allow sellers to use that description of a watch unless it is actually a GENUINE Cartier Tank watch. That's why we see the use of such adjectives as "Rectangular" and "Classic" used to describe what is, quite obviously, a Cartier Tank "inspired" watch on that auction site.
Your two mechanical Timex Tanks are interesting and they look like they have a good "balance" to their hands and numerals. Too bad they are not working, but with a bit of effort they will probably become operational again.
Meanwhile, I'm sitting on pins and needles waiting for my Medana "Classic" watch to show up. My confirmation emails from Amnazon said it has been shipped already and should be here by June 15th.
