The Ivory coloured dial on our Cartier Tank is decorated with beautiful, black Roman numerals on the left and right side of the dial. These numerals are ‘framed’ by two gold-etched lines running from the top, to the bottom of the dial, making the Roman numerals appear as if they were printed on pillars – hence our nickname to this dial ”Roman Pillar” dial. As with all Cartier Tank watches, the black printed numerals are clear and have a slightly raised profile with a bright glossy finish. The time is told by the two wonderful blue hands which match perfectly to the sapphire cabochon stone inside the winding crown. The 925 sterling silver case and it’s Vermeil gold plating are in excellent conditions but show some darker oily spots, these spots appear when gold ins’t worn that much or is stored away for long periods of time – exactly what our Cartier Tank has been through, the former owner kept her  watch stored away in a safe and hardly wore it, hence those oily coloured spots.
This Tank is fitted on a 14mm original Cartier, Cognac coloured alligator strap with Whiskey coloured stitching and a gold-plated Cartier pin buckle. All numerals and hallmarks on the case-back are clearly visible while the crown and it’s cabochon blue sapphire are in excellent and damage free condition. The case measures 21x30mm and this Tank and it’s Cartier quartz movement were fully serviced by our watchmaker. We kept the case unpolished and the dark tarnishing spots for all to see, but if the future buyer would like this watch to be shiny and without those spots, we will make sure to deliver the watch like new again – She will be sold with a twelve month warranty.
