Tank Française

TANK FRANÇAISE

More than 25 years after its creation, the Tank Française watch is back in the limelight in a film worthy of a design icon with so much to say.

A WATCH AND ITS FILM

The Tank Française watch is surrounded by an international cast of strong personalities: Rami Malek, one of the most singular actors of his generation, and Catherine Deneuve, the French legend of cinema and style.

2023: A Design in Evolution

Launched in 1996, the Tank Française debuted a metal bracelet in perfect harmony with the case, becoming an immediate member of the great Tank family. A monobloc metal design that Cartier is radicalising with this brand-new version. A new approach, both aesthetic and ergonomic, which energises the ultra-profiled lines of the watch, available in steel and yellow gold, with or without diamonds.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Louis Cartier sought to streamline shapes and bring the circular face into the line of the bracelet, finally integrating the design of the attachments as an extension of the bracelet. This was the birth of the Tank watch in 1917. Very quickly, the Maison offered variations of the watch, including the Tank Française in 1996.
