Worn by Jennifer Aniston, Anna Wintour, and the late Princess Diana, the company's watches have long been favorites of royalty, Hollywood celebrities, and any woman desiring to wear a watch of distinction.
Designed personally by Louis Cartier in 1917 and patterned after an army tank, Cartier's iconic Tank watch symbolized speed and achievement. Cartier Tanks, already known as a true iconic watch, have seen an explosion in popularity in the last year.
Today's auction showcases this beautiful Certified Pre-Owned ladies Cartier Tank watch. It has an iconic tank case, Cartier numberless dial, gold "epee" hands, and sapphire topped crown, and mechanical Cartier movement.
Its black dial is complement by its its black leather strap.
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 gave individual attention to each wristwatch. As a result, Cartier wristwatches with mechanical movements are often more sought after by collectors than their quartz counterparts.
Our Cartier Tank, which has all of its original parts, is in truly gorgeous condition. The watch presents as a 9.7 out of 10. Its case presents as mint. And its original dial is mint. On the wrist it presents like new.
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 leather strap and meticulously detailed it making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
