A TANK IS A TANK IS A TANK IS A TANK IS A TANK – the new Cartier Tank Anglaise
The Tank watch was created in 1917 out of a vision, a solid concept that was the culmination
of a lengthy process of deliberation. Here was an instrument for telling the time that completely eschewed tradition, turned custom on its head, brought modern design into the ateliers and took its place as a quintessential model for watchmaking.
It was said that “a tank had stormed Cartier”. As it went on to segue between decades and
straddle the century, this trailblazing watch and its revolutionary form, style and elegance were to pioneer a decisively modern lifestyle.
