Originally sold by Carrington & Co Ltd at Selfridges in 1986, we have here an elegant Cartier Tank with a rather unusual burgundy red dial, which we absolutely love! and its all about colour with a cartier tank watch The dial is signed 'must de Cartier' at 12 o'clock and has the famous Cartier logo and 'Swiss' at 6 o'clock, along with gilt hour and minute hands, all of which create a sense of symmetry on the watch. And, of course, no Cartier would be complete without the trademark cabochon winding crown.
The vermeil case, also known as silver gilt, or gold-plated sterling silver, measures 21x29mm and is a very comfortable wear on the wrist. Inside the case is the Swiss quartz battery caliber , fully serviced by us and running strongly. We've paired this watch on a simple black strap with its original Cartier buckle but it looks great on anything. The watch is a complete full set, too. It comes with its box and papers as well as its original buckle. Certificate , even original receipt from Self-ridges - A very Rare Find indeed.
What we think
Cartier Tanks have been worn by the greats throughout its lifetime including Fred Astaire, Jackie Kennedy, Michelle Obama and Princess Diana. Andy Warhol famously said, “I don’t wear a Tank to tell the time. In fact, I never wind it. I wear a Tank because it’s the watch to wear.” This Full box set with all the papers is a one off find! do not miss out.
