Tank Louis Cartier

Designed by Louis Cartier in 1916, the legendary Tank watch is an icon of modern watchmaking. It embodies the perfect harmony between watchmaking excellence and classical geometric rigour. For more than a century, Cartier has reinterpreted the Tank while remaining faithful to the original concept created by Louis Cartier.

On the Tank watch, the strap attachments (horns) are seamlessly incorporated into the case by the twin parallel lines of the brancards. This harmonious meeting of case and horns marked a stylistic achievement unique in the genre of the newly emerged wristwatch, a breakthrough accomplished through several years of contemplative research and design work.
