History
Cartier’s true genius lies in its ability to merge artistic refinery with technological superiority, as is evinced by the Tank collection, which is one of the finest line of watches made by the brand. The first Tank was made in 1917 to commemorate World War I, as a gift for General John Pershing of the American Expeditionary Force. Launched for the public in 1919, the line featured watches with sharp lines and unique features reminiscent of the powerful Renault tanks used by the Western Front in the war.

Design
The Tank Francaise model number W51012Q4 for men, sports the iconic rectangular case of the line, crafted of stainless steel with dimensions 30.4 x 25.5mm and a minimal thickness of 6.7mm. Moulded into an octagonal facetted shape, the crown is made of 18K yellow gold, and inlaid with a blue synthetic spinel cabochon. The dial is silvered and grained, with the hourly divisions marked by Cartier’s classic Roman numerals in bold black. The lugs blend seamlessly into the two-toned bracelet, consisting of alternate steel and 18K gold linkages, which attaches securely to the wrist by a hidden folding clasp. Sapphire crystal glass shielding on the dial ensures scratch resistivity.

Features
Two sword shaped, blued steel hands trace out the time in exact precision owing to the Cartier calibre 175A powered quartz movement of the watch, making it a delight for the horologic senses. A rectangular calendar aperture located at 3 o’clock displays the current date for the watch enthusiast. The watch is water resistant to a depth of 30m.

Interesting Facts  
One of the most famous anachronisms in cinema history, that of a Tank appearing on screen in 1926 in the Son of the Sheikh, was caused due to Rudolph Valentino’s refusal to take off his watch.

As Andy Warhol said in 1973, “I don't wear a Tank watch to tell the time. Actually I never even wind it. I wear a Tank because it is the watch to wear!"

 

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.
