Cartier

Mini Tank in diamond

€15.000 EUR

It was in 1917, in the middle of the World War, that the design of the Tank watch was born.

Fascinated by the tanks that appeared on the battlefields, Louis Cartier drew inspiration from them to create a watch with an unusual design: a rectangular dial for the shape of tanks seen from above, surrounded by two stretchers reminiscent of caterpillars.

Marketed in 1919, it seduced by its originality and its practicality. Its success is immediate. It was sold for the first time on November 12, 1919, almost a year to the day after the signing of the armistice which ended the First World War. Indeed, Louis Cartier had refused to market the Tank watch as long as the war lasted.

Here is a variation of the model in mini size, matched with diamonds. Mounted on a leather strap and dating from 1970, this watch is both a chic and elegant jewel but also a rare piece steeped in history.
