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:
has a vermeil (20 microns gold on 925 silver) case.
has black-coated steel hands.
has black FULL ROMAN numeral hour markers.
has a matte aged-white dial or face.
black CARTIER name logo is at 12 o'clock.
black "SWISS" is at 6 0'clock.
has a clearly-marked black rail-track grid / trim.
has a blue CABOCHON crown.
has a clear glass crystal.
has a new black leather band.
CARTIER clasp is gold-filled.
