Cartier Tank – beautiful and understated watches
Whether it's actors or politicians, fashion designers or members of the royal family, the Cartier Tank has adorned the wrists of many famous and important people during the last century. Both yesterday and today, the Cartier Tank, with its cool, classicist style, proves that opposites attract and masters the game of contrasts in serious style.
The Tank typology
Inspired by the armored tanks used by the American liberation troops in World War I, Louis Cartier created the first watch for both men and women, which sat perfectly on the wrist. To this day, the coquettish stretched Roman numerals, the rail decoration for the minute hand, two blue steel hands and the pearl coated winding crown with its blue sapphire cabochon are the hallmarks of the Cartier Tank. This has not changed in 100 years. Despite these style-defining characteristics, the Cartier Tank is more versatile than almost any other watch. It is available in a wide range of fascinating variations - from the Tank Allongée to the Tank Américaine, the Tank Française and the Tank Louis Cartier. They come in three different sizes, with a large selection of strap options and case materials to cater to every taste. This diversity of models underscores the Cartier Tank's enduring reputation as the first unisex watch to be popular among men and women.
