CARTIER TANK MUST VERMEIL
We’re happy to offer you guys another gorgeous Cartier watch, this time it’s the Cartier Tank Must Vermeil with a stunning black dial. This particular black dial with a combination of printed Roman numerals and diamond shaped indices is a pretty rare find. The black lacquer finished dial has the characteristics of a gilt dial and is showing a few, so-called spider webs, on the top layer of the black paint.
That glossy black dial is decorated with sparkly gold Roman numerals for the 12, 3, 6 and 9 position, the remaining numbers are highlighted by a diamond shape and the dial has a gold printed ‘rail track’ minute indicator on the outer edge – it’s a truly beautiful watch-face which adds that little bit of extra flair to this already elegant and stylish, Cartier Tank. We fitted the watch to an Azur-blue, grained leather strap to give this Cartier a more modern and playful look, besides that, we just love the blue and black combination and the vibe this watch now radiates. The grained leather strap is of course fitted with a Cartier pin buckle to complete the picture. All numerals and hallmarks on the case-back are clearly visible and the crown and it’s cabochon blue sapphire are in excellent and damage free condition. In our opinion this 22x29mm Tank watch can still be worn by gents and ladies alike – It’s a perfect mid-size for the ladies and a very dapper and Sprezzatura style watch for the gents.
The quartz Cartier movement received a full battery service including a new mineral crystal and the 925 sterling silver case was again plated with a new layer of 18k gold using the Vermeil technique, the same was applied to the Cartier pin buckle. This stunning black, Cartier Tank Vermeil will be sold with a 12 month warranty.
