Designed personally by Louis Cartier in 1917 and patterned after an army tank, Cartier's iconic Tank watch symbolized speed and achievement.
This gorgeous 18K gold and diamond ladies Tank features a stylish tank case, classic white Roman dial with blue steel hands, sapphire topped crown, and mechanical 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.
Save the diamonds, the watch is 100% Cartier including its original buckle a purple Cartier alligator band. It presents in beautiful condition. The diamonds bright white and eye clean diamonds have previously been added by a jeweler (non-Cartier). They are full of sparkle and fire.
Our watchmaker has just freshly cleaned and oiled the movement. For the finishing touch we have installed a brand new genuine crocodile strap with the watch's Cartier buckle. Also included is a very slightly worn purple genuine Cartier band ($300 value).
Retail value for a new gold Tank: Approx. $9,650.00 USD (without diamonds - with Cartier set diamonds approx. $25,200.00)
