18ct manual wind Cartier Tank with the rare Paris dial
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 â€śchemin de ferâ€ť (railroad in French).
