The history of the Cartier institution is long and diverse, dating back to 1847. From being a resplendent face in the creation of beautiful accessories for the crowned heads, to making a statement by introducing the first known wristwatch for men in war, this brand has experienced it all. Today its timepieces are sold commercially and mark a revolutionary movement in the history of fashion. The institution has globally impacted all spheres of life, making it stand tall as a name ’synonymous with objects of beauty and quality.’
The Tank collection drew its inspiration from Renault tanks that were in use during the First World War. The man behind the craft, Louis Cartier, himself created this masterpiece that changed the face of watch making, with a unique design of 4 lines and 2 parallel shafts. Introduced in 2012, the tank Anglaise mimics the lines and alignment of the original piece with a contemporary twist.
Made for woman, the Cartier Anglaise W5310005 embodies elements of femininity and boldness simultaneously. The 18k pink gold case measures 29.8mm x 39.2mm and has a thickness of 9.5mm. Its lacquered silver flinque dial has Roman numerals as hour makers and sward shaped hands in blued steel.
Constructed of alligator skin, the strap is attached to an 18K pink gold ardillon buckle. A calendar aperture is meticulously positioned at 3 o’ clock. A 9 sided crown set with a sapphire, embellishes the piece making it worthy for royalty. The design conforms to the unique aesthetic of the original Tank, yet merging in it, a modern design.
Durability being a key stone to the success of the brand, it is ensured in all its timepieces. This piece is water resistant up to 30m and the sapphire crystal is scratch resistant. It incorporates mechanical movement with automatic winding Cartier caliber 007.
The First World War succeeded in inspiring a whole line of watches when Louis Cartier, the founder of the iconic Cartier brand fashioned watches inspired by the Renault tanks introduced by the Americans on the Western Front. These intricately designed timepieces born from an unusual inspiration were eventually introduced by the brand as the Tank collection in 1917, before they were launched in the markets in 1919.
The Tank collection has cases available in both rectangle and square shapes similar to the proportions of the tough war-machine. The case is further accentuated with a cabochon crown and sword shaped hour and minute hands set in a classic dial with Roman numerals, exuding a vintage feel. The distinctively patterned bracelet is the highlight of this collection. It consists of rectangular links ingeniously integrated with vertical sidebars, which bring to mind the rugged construction of the tank’s tracks used during war.
Originally introduced as far back as World War I, today this coveted collection is crafted using cutting-edge technology to feature enhanced functions such as calendar and power reserve displays. They also offer a broad range of movements from the simple yet precise Quartz to the technologically complicated and unerringly accurate automatic.
The Tank collection finds its manifestation in 6 ranges: Francaise, Americaine, Anglaise, MC, Solo and Louis Cartier.
