Since the Cartier Tank was released in 1917, it has remained popular ever since, and after the introduction of the Cartier Tank Francais in 1996, this too has remained such a highly sought after model, and here is a very elegant Cartier Tank Francais made in 18 carat white gold.
With its distinguishable and elegant black Roman numerals set against the white dial making this so easy to read day or night, the gold case measures 20.5mm across plus the crown by 25mm and is fitted on an elegant leather band making this perfect to wear day or night as well as for any occasion.
The quartz movement keeps perfect time and comes with our twelve month warranty, and when you see this watch on your wrist, you will see why the Cartier Tank has always stayed in fashion.

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.
