18 carat Cartier Tank 1821


The Cartier Tank has remained steadfastly one of the most iconic and sought after models by Cartier, and here is a very elegant Cartier Tank in 18 carat gold that looks fabulous on the wrist.

The 18 carat yellow gold case measures 25mm across plus the crown and has a deceptively larger look on the wrist thanks to the wider than normal sides.

With its iconic look of those beautiful Roman numerals, this is one watch that will look so elegant during the day just as much as the evening.

Fitted on a Cartier alligator band and 18 carat Cartier buckle, the quartz Cartier calibre 157 movement has been serviced by our in-house watchmakers, runs perfect and comes with our twelve month warranty.

This is one watch that has stood the test of time in style and will always continue to look so elegant on the wrist.

A brief history on the Cartier Tank watch.

The Cartier Tank watch was created by Louis Cartier in 1917, and was actually inspired by the army tanks that were first used in World War One. First introduced in 1918, the Cartier Tank watch has been such an easily distinguishable model thanks to its clean straight lines, somewhat mimicking an army tank.

Variations of the Cartier Tank have been produced including the Tank Louis in 1922, the Tank Americaine in 1989, and the Tank Francaise in 1996.

Did you know the rectangle inside the numbers on the face is known as the chemin de fer  (railroad in French)?
