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 brought to market in 1919.

This c.1999 Cartier Tank 18ct gold on Brown crocadile leather strap has a solid 18ct gold case that is square in shape, the crown is gold and set with a cabochon sapphire. The dial is creme with roman numerals at hour markers. The hands are blued and are a fantastic contrast against the dial. The movement is quartz battery calibre.
