Cartier Tank MC watch, Large model, steel, leather

£ 6 000.00
Created by Louis Cartier in 1917, the Tank family’s first prototype was presented to General Pershing of the American army during World War I. Sharp tailoring, exquisite design and monochromatic finish provide the Cartier Tank MC Gent’s Watch with a dignified appeal. Uncompromisingly bold, the Maison’s iconic design has a larger case in sleek steel and boasts a self-winding mechanical movement. The slick square dimensions, with silvered flinqué dial, give this watch an undeniable authority. Featuring sword-shaped hands in blued-steel, the sharp edges of this elegant model are softened by the faceted steel crown topped with sapphire crystal. The Tank MC’s impressive features also boast a semi-matte alligator skin strap with a steel double-adjustable folding buckle, calendar aperture and small second counter. The perfection of its 1904 MC automatic movement is visible though the transparent sapphire case back, showcasing Cartier’s excellence in manufacture. This deceptively simple accessory completes any polished, powerful look.
