In 1917, inspired by the newly introduced war machines on the Western Front, Louis Cartier designed the most famous CARTIER watch, the CARTIER Tank watch. This line has survived, with over thirty varieties now being made.

This model, the Louis CARTIER Tank is named thus because it is the original & earliest design, having a 17 RUBIS manual-wind movement & a delicate small-scale case. The CARTIER Tank has been a favourite of such people as:

  • Frank Sinatra,
  • Princess Diana,
  • Angelina Jolie,
  • Jackie Kennedy Onassis,
