Designed personally by Louis Cartier in 1917 and patterned after an army tank, Cartier's Tank watch symbolized speed and achievement and has become one of the company's iconic models.
Since its birth, the Cartier Tank Francaise has been a classic, uniting elegance with function, form with comfort.
The Tank Francaise Chronoflex, the chronograph of the Tank Francaise line, features a stylish tank case, classic silver Roman dial with blue steel hands, sapphire topped crown, and Swiss Cartier quartz movement with perpetual calendar that doesn't need adjustment until 2100.
Today's offering showcases this Certified Pre-Owned mens full size Chronoflex complete with original certificate, papers and folio, and box. It is 100% Cartier down to the original band and buckle. The watch itself presents as mint condition - a 9.8 out of 10.
Our Master Watchmaker has installed a new battery and new waterproofing seals and performed any needed servicing. For the finishing touch we have meticulously detailed it making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a new one-year warranty from Connoisseur of Time.
With a new strap this would be a gift quality Tank Francaise that looks like new for a fraction of the retail price.
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.
