History
This collection has been inspired by the iconic ‘Tank’ watch, which beautifully showcases the structural harmony of its namesake. The first Tank wristwatch was crafted in 1917, being inspired by minimalist design: four lines, with two parallel shafts made from gold or platinum, a sapphire cabochon on top of the winding crown and a leather strap. It encased a revolutionary square case which soon became a legend in the world of watch making. Worn by Louis Cartier himself, the “Tank Louis Cartier” timepiece, a derivative of the Tank collection, sets the standards for all Tank watches. It embodies Louis Cartier’s contribution to ‘Modern style’ watch making, which was later renamed the ‘Art Deco’ movement. The Tank Louis Cartier watches were first unveiled in 1922, and were directly inspired by the original Tank watch that was crafted as a gift for General John Pershing. These models are the ultimate expression of understated luxury.

Design
The Tank Louis Cartier watch, XL, enchants watch lovers with its authentic Cartier design. This model is affixed with a beaded 18 carat pink gold crown set with a sapphire cabochon. The time piece contains a classic silver-grained dial that adds to the understated elegance of this watch. This dial is enhanced by mineral crystal glass over it. The face contains painted Roman numerals for hour-markers and two sword-shaped hands crafted from blued steel that are characteristic to most Cartier watches. Following tradition, the straps for this time piece are made from brown alligator-skin strap with adjustable 18 carat pink gold ardillon buckle. A sapphire crystal dome encases the watch face.

Features
The Tank Louis Cartier, XL, watch model W1560017 combines intricate machinery with elegance in its time piece. It contains the Cartier Caliber 430 MC featuring a mechanical movement with manual winding, characteristic to all Tank time pieces. This particular model is encased in an 18 carat pink gold case dimensioned as 40.40 mm in diameter, 34.92 mm in width and 5.1 mm in thickness, portraying a sleek but large watch. The case is water resistant to 20 meters/60 feet under water.

 

History
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.

 

Design
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.

 

Features
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.

 

Series
The Tank collection finds its manifestation in 6 ranges: Francaise, Americaine, Anglaise, MC, Solo and Louis Cartier.
