Tank Cintrée today

Dec 14, 2020,08:58 AM

First introduced in 1921, the Tank Cintrée is without a doubt one of the most elegant timepieces Cartier created. The stylish case, with its elongated and curved shape, conforms to the curvature of the wrist for sublime wearing comfort. The Cintrée is a direct descendent of the original Tank designed by Louis Cartier in 1917, and was the largest and most daring watch made by the firm during the roaring ‘20s. Today, Cartier’s “Tank” line is a wristwatch icon, one of the world’s most recognizable and desirable timepieces thanks to its classic lines and seamlessly integrated case, bezel, and lugs. It is a design that transcends time

Released in 2004 in a limited edition series of 50 pieces, the Tank Cintrée collection was the only "Collection Privée, Cartier Paris" model to not feature a "Paris" signature on the dial. Its curved, pure lines fit the wrist perfectly, demonstrating Cartier's forward-thinking design that was originally incepted in 1921. While the yellow gold re-edition was produced in 150 examples, the platinum version, such as the present example, was only manufactured in 50 pieces, highlighting the case metal's rarity. This watch furthermore features Breguet-style hands, a nod to the original Tank Cintrée watches in the 1920s.

Such a platinum bracelet is an artisan masterpiece by itself
