Must de Cartier “Onyx” B&P
Here’s another gorgeous Must de Cartier Tank watch, this time with a stunning glossy black lacquered dial. A watch that is a downright Icon and perhaps most known to adorn the wrists of royalties and movie stars alike.
The black dial on our Cartier Tank is a dial without any hour, minute or seconds markers, this of-course adds to the overall clean look of this Tank watch, but also adds a slice of mystery to it – The only printing done on the dial are the model name ‘Must de Cartier’ and the enlarged Cartier ‘Double C signature’ just above the six o’clock position. This Tank is a watch still accompanied by it’s original box and papers, and on the Cartier warranty there is the mention of an ‘Onyx’ dial. That dial is showing the well known ‘spider dial’ effect which we see more often with these Tank watches from the 1980’s, but surprisingly it did not show up in the photo’s, and to be honest, it won’t really show on the wrist. When worn it truly feels like something special, the pitch black dial and strap have a great and elegant harmony going on, but that all black appearance also feels pretty bad-ass! A cool sensation not many other Tank watches can induce in my humble opinion. 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 conditions.
Inside this Cartier beats a manual wind movement, it is Cartier signed and received a full check up by our watchmakers. The 925 sterling silver case was again plated with a new layer of 18k gold, using the Vermeil technique. During the service a new mineral crystal was also fitted. This beautiful Cartier Tank, Must de Cartier ‘Onyx’ with manual wind movement will be available with our 24 month warranty.
