The history of Cartier, ‘A pioneer in modern watch making’, dates back to 1847; when it was founded by Louis François Cartier in Paris, France. It was under family control till 1964, even after which, it stands as one of the most esteemed luxury watch making companies. With a reputation of being ‘ A King of Jewellers and a Jeweller of Kings ‘, the brand stands for elegance, pomp and grandeur, even today.
The conception of the Tank Collection in 1917 by the man himself, established the birth of a legend. It is not just any collection, it pays homage to the culturally rich Cartier institution and its first prototype was presented to General Pershing before it was out in the market.
Updating the legacy of the tank wrist watch, the Tank Francois WE11006 is an exquisite timepiece that subscribes to a modern design, yet preserving the initial elegance that the collection sought to create. A simple yet captivating design, constructed for women, the watch incorporates an octagonal crown set with a synthetic cabochon-shaped spinal. It embodies finely cut diamonds and a sapphire crystal lending it its ravishing splendour. Sward shaped hands in blued steel with 11 diamond hour markers and a black Roman numeral at 12, reflects a combination of timeless elegance and contemporary suavity. The case measures 25.35 mm x 20.25mm in diameter and has a 6mm thickness, with a fixed stainless steel bezel set on it. A stainless steel bracelet makes it an ultimate piece for a woman who wants to assert her style boldly.
The Swiss made luxury watch incorporates an analog dial. It houses a Cartier caliber 057 quartz movement. With a body that is water resistant up to 30 m, the watch is highly durable. Additionally, the sapphire crystal is scratch resistant exemplifying the perfection of the timepiece.
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.
