Description

The first Tank wristwatch was created in 1917 and was inspired by a simple idea: four lines, with two parallel shafts, a sapphire cabochon atop the winding crown and a leather strap. With its infinitely refined and timeless design, this revolutionary square watch took shape and forever changed the world of watch making. In the words of Cartier: Louis Cartier created the Tank watch in 1917. A legend was born. The first prototype was presented as a gift to General Pershing some years before the watch was introduced into the market in 1919. The lugs blend seamlessly into the bare edges of the flat vertical brancards, giving the watch its unique aesthetic. The clean, crisp lines have proved hugely popular with a free-spirited, elegant clientèle. The now-iconic Tank watch has inspired countless variations, yet managed to preserve its distinctive identity. This example comes in a modest and tasteful 20mm stainless steel case with elegant Roman numerals and an 18kt yellow gold and stainless steel bracelet. This watch comes with box and papers
