Worn by Jennifer Aniston, Anna Wintour, and the late Princess Diana, the company's watches have long been worn by royalty, Hollywood celebrities, and any woman desiring to wear a luxury timepiece.
Designed personally by Louis Cartier in 1917 and patterned after an army tank, Cartier's iconic Tank watch symbolized speed and achievement.
Today's offering showcases this Certified Pre-Owned ladies vermeil Cartier Tank watch. It has an iconic tank case, classic white Roman dial, epee hands, sapphire topped crown, and original mechanical Cartier movement.
Before cost-cutting measures brought about the widespread use of cheaper quartz movements for many wristwatches, Cartier contracted with watch manufacturers to produce mechanical movements designed to last a lifetime. Using traditional watchmaking practices, these gifted craftsmen poured individual attention into each wristwatch. As a result, Cartier wristwatches with mechanical movements are often more sought after by collectors than their quartz counterparts.
It is fully Cartier down to the dial, hands and crown. It is in gorgeous original condition - a 9.2 out of 10. The case shows only light signs of wear and still retains its Cartier sticker on the back. Its original dial is mint. On the wrist it presents as just short of mint.
A Master Watchmaker has just freshly overhauled the movement. It is keeping very accurate time.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new Teju lizard grain leather strap with Cartier style buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
