This WatchWe have here a quite rare, unusual and elegant Cartier Tank with an original, tri-colour dial. The dial is made up of three different types of gold - pink, while and yellow, which makes the dial stand out and adds more of a jewellery aspect to the design. The Trinity collection remains one of Cartier's most popular jewellery designs since it was conceived by Louis Cartier in 1924. The dial is complete with all of the classic Cartier features: Roman numeral chapter ring, outer minute railway-style tracking, blue steel hands and cabochon winding crown. The Tank watch is currently enjoying a massive revival in demand and the more scare models are hard to find. The condition and rarity of this dial makes this watch very special!
The vermeil case, also known as silver gilt, or gold-plated sterling silver, measures 23.5 x 30mm and is a very comfortable wear on the wrist for both him and her. Inside the case is a Swiss quartz caliber 90, fully serviced by us and running strongly. We've paired this watch on a brown, croc grain strap, but it looks great on anything. The watch also comes with its original box.
It wasn’t until 1976 that the in-house Must de Cartier Tank was launched, the first product in the in-house Must line. These Tanks were made of vermeil, or silver gilt, which is gold-plated sterling silver. This made the new line more affordable whilst still having the prestige of being made from a precious metal. Various sizes, dial colours and finishes were then produced for both men and women. The Must de Cartier line was faded out at the beginning of the 21st century.
This watch comes fully serviced by our on-site workshop and with a 12 month, non-waterproof service cover.
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.”
