Our Price $10,990.00
An exquisite vintage luxury. This stunning time piece by Cartier was crafted in 1998 with a combination of 18k yellow gold, the finest of leathers and high quality diamonds. This design, known as the Cartier 'Tank' and has been a celebrated design since its debut in the early 20th century. This iconic design is the ultimate symbol of sophistication and chic with classic features. The face is clean cut with roman numerals detailing the dial, while the band is practical yet stylish with a crocodile embossing to the leather. The diamonds border the design and make this piece a vision of luxury and style.
The 'Tank' design was first created in 1917 as a personal gift from Louis Cartier to General John Pershing of the American Expeditionary Force. This design drew inspiration from the Renault Tanks which Cartier saw on the Western Front and later debuted through his time piece collections in 1919. The 'Tank' has continued to be a celebrated icon of the brand and is a design which marks a moment in history.
