Tank Cintrée Yellow Gold (WGTA0026)
This Cartier Tank Cintrée wristwatch (ref. WGTA0026) features the caliber 8971 MC hand-wound movement; golden dial with black Roman numerals & blued-steel, sword-shaped hands; mineral crystal; and 46.3 x 23mm, 18k yellow gold case on a semi-matte brown alligator strap secured by an 18k yellow gold ardillon buckle.
Louis Cartier created the Tank watch in 1917. A legend was born. The first prototype was presented as a gift to General Pershing some years before the watch was introduced into the market in 1919. The lugs blend seamlessly into the bare edges of the flat vertical brancards, giving the watch its unique aesthetic. The clean, crisp lines have proved hugely popular with a free-spirited, elegant clientèle. The now-iconic Tank watch has inspired countless variations, yet managed to preserve its distinctive identity.
