Cartier Tank Francaise Mens Large Size, Automatic - Stainless Steel & 18K Gold - W51005Q4


Item No. 5080SH

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, it symbolized speed, achievement, and resistance.

Since its birth, the Cartier Tank Francaise has been a classic, uniting elegance with function, form with comfort. The gents Tank Francaise features a stylish tank case, classic white Roman dial with blue steel hands, sapphire topped crown, and high grade, hand-crafted mechanical movement. Unlike modern quartz watches, the mechanism showcases the timeless art of traditional fine watchmaking.

Today's offering showcases this largest size Tank Francaise. It is 100% original and presents in gorgeous condition - about a 9.6 out of 10.

Accompanying it is its original Cartier box and booklets.

Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.


Celebrated for their impeccable quality and flawless designs, Cartier watches rank among the most luxurious and expensive in the world. Worn by Bill Clinton, Elton John, and Djimon Hounsou, the company's watches have long been favorites of royalty, Hollywood celebrities, and anyone desiring to wear a timepiece of distinction.
