History
The first Tank was created by Louis Cartier himself in 1917 as a gift for General John Pershing of the American Expeditionary Force. Launched for the public in 1919, watches from this collection served to commemorate the Renault Tanks used by the Western Front in its victory, with their sharp lines and powerful frames.

Design
The Tank Solo model number W5200027 for men, encapsulates the essence of the collection with its distinctive make. Crafted of stainless steel, the rectangular case unique to the collection has dimensions of 31 x 40.85mm with a minimal thickness of 7.65mm, for a streamlined and comfortable finish. The parallel brancards made of steel are polished, with the horizontal frames being brushed for multiple dimensions of intrigue. Silvered and opaline, the dial is clear with traditional Roman numerals to mark the hours in black. A track positioned at the inner rim of the dial provides minute denominations of time. The steel crown is beaded, with Cartier’s trademark blue cabochon spinel imbedded into its body. A sapphire crystal glass protects the dial effectively from scratches. The round scaled alligator-skin strap attaches to the wrist with a double adjustable steel folding buckle for secure wearing.

Features
With mechanical movement featuring an automatic winding, the Tank Solo W5200027 ensures precise timekeeping. The Cartier calibre 049 of the watch beats at 28800 vph with 21 jewels and a power reserve of 42 hours. Three sword shaped blued steel hands on the dial give the hour, minute, and second functions, with a calendar aperture located at 6 o’clock to display the current date. The watch is water resistant to a depth of 30m.

Interesting Fact
The Tank has remained one if the most iconic collections created by Cartier. In 1926, it made its debut on the big screen with ‘The Son of the Sheikh,’ when Rudolph Valentino refused to take his Tank of before shooting.

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.
