Worn by Jennifer Aniston, Anna Wintour, and the late Princess Diana, the company's watches have long been worn by royalty, Hollywood celebrities, and any woman desiring to wear a luxury timepiece.
Designed personally by Louis Cartier in 1917 and patterned after an army tank, Cartier's iconic Tank watch symbolized speed and achievement.
Today's offering showcases this Certified Pre-Owned ladies vermeil Cartier Tank watch. It has an iconic tank case finished in white gold over sterling silver, striking Tiffany & Co. robin's egg blue dial, white gold tone epee hands, sapphire topped crown, and original Cartier Swiss mechanical movement.
Before cost-cutting measures brought about the widespread use of quartz movements for certain wristwatches, Cartier utilized Swiss-crafted mechanical movements. Using centuries old watchmaking practices, craftsmen poured individual attention into each wristwatch.
It is fully Cartier and presents in gorgeous condition. It presents as a 9.8 or 9.9 out of 10 - it is gift quality. Its case presents as mint - the plating has previously been redone. Its original dial has been meticulously custom refinished - the printing could pass as Cartier factory done to the naked eye.
A Master Watchmaker has just freshly serviced the movement. It is running extremely strong and true keeping time on par with a brand new Cartier in our testing position.
Your watch is important to us, and we will take care of it for its lifetime. We provide the best after sale care in the business with an extremely experienced team of four Master Watchmakers all of whom each have over thirty-five years of experience and a large number of parts. One of our Master Watchmakers has done authorized servicing work for Cartier's service center.
For the finishing touch it comes equipped with a brand new complementary leather strap and aftermarket Cartier style buckle making it ready for immediate enjoyment. We also stock a variety of others straps in various prints, skins, and colors including the pictured aftermarket band in basic black with a Java lizard leather like Cartier used on many of their vintage watches if you'd prefer a more subtle style. Please ask us if you're interested.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a full-page custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
