TANK LOUIS CARTIER
The Cartier Tank is considered one of the hallmarks of elegance when it comes to wrist watches. The Tank with its clean and timeless lines make it a watch fit for every occasion. The Tank watch is offered in multipale styles and movements, yet always in the same style watch-case, making it one of the most iconic and recognizable dress watches ever made! As Cartier likes to sum it up “Adopted by Louis Cartier himself, the “Tank Louis Cartier” is among THE Tank watches as the reference model.If the choice of the rectangular shape and its proud lines are assumed, the top of the fasteners sees its angles become rounded, symbolizing the contribution of Louis Cartier to the modern style later called Art Décoratif”
Our 18 carat yellow gold Tank Louis Cartier is in a wonderful condition and comes with the original box and Cartier paperwork. The white crispy clean Roman numeral dial is spotless while the beautiful blued hands offer a great contrast and are a matching pare with the blue sapphire cabouchon crown. The real unique feature about this Tank Louis Cartier is the 18 carat yellow gold and Cartier signed mesh bracelet. These rare bracelets are also known by their nicknames ‘grain of rice’ or ‘bead of rice’ bracelets – this because of the gold links and their shape that resemble pieces of rice (rice grains). These type of bracelets are ultra comfortable on the wrist, not to mention it makes you’re Tank watch extremely unique! The flat gold bracelet seamingly merges into the case, it’s like a piece of art – beautiful!
