Cartier is well known for making rarefied and refined watches, but its newest timepiece, the Drive de Cartier, puts a modern spin on its mastery of all things elegant. The masculine, dressy update to the classic tank watch features an awesomely designed cushion-shaped case, and its dial is crammed with eye-catching features. The guilloche right at the center attracts light like a mirror, and the small seconds hand at six o'clock feels bring to mind the speedometer in a luxury automobile.
That's one of the reasons this watch appears in the inaugural issue of GQ Style as part of a story about pairing your timepiece with your favorite car. At this time of year, when the weather is reliably warm and the skies are clear, this watch can serve as the ultimate reminder that it's OK to roll down your windows and enjoy the ride with timeless style.
$6,250, available at cartier.us
