The Cartier Tank: 100 Years Later

The Cartier Tank: 100 Years Later

A decade after the Cartier Tank’s first iteration, its style and elegance remains wholly intact. To celebrate the noteworthy anniversary, the high jewelry house has released six new timepieces to highlight the simplicity and history of the design and the brand.

Released in 1917, the watch was inspired by avant-garde art movements like Bauhaus and Cubism, a drastic departure from the twisting and twirling ornamental themes of the timely Art Nouveau style. Cartier’s new design, was subtle, refined and balanced. It exercised restraint and exemplified modernity.

Most importantly, aside from its sleek aesthetics, the Tank is easily worn by both men and women and uniquely transitional from day-to-night, on the sports court or in the office. Its numerous metamorphoses remain a testament to its longevity on both the primary and secondary markets, making it a staple in any watch collection.
