Cartier Tank Americaine Midsize Automatic Watch, Ref. 1726 - 18K White Gold & Factory Diamonds


Item No. 4956SH

No watches better embody the best attributes of a Cartier than the renowned Tank series, the most recognizable Cartier watches. Designed personally by Louis Cartier in 1917 and patterned after an army tank, they symbolize speed, achievement, and resistance.

This Tank Americaine midsize watch takes elegant and luxury one step further with its stylish elongated Cartier diamond set version of the tank case, classic and elegant silver guilloché Roman dial with blue steel hands, diamond topped crown, and Cartier mechanical movement.

The diamonds are factory Cartier set. The midsize version of the Tank Americaine is well-suited for a woman wanting a full size rectangular watch or a man looking a midsize. The watch is fully Cartier down to the new Cartier strap.

It is in gorgeous condition - it presents as about a 9.7 or 9.8 out of a perfect 10!

Our Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components, reassembling and lubricating the movement, replacing all of the waterproofing seals with new Cartier gaskets, and extensive timing testing and regulation (a $595 value).

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

Retail Replacement Value: $35,000.00
