2012 Cartier Tank Watch Never Stops

Paris, London, New York. 1847, 1902, 1909. The Cartier brothers have long since set out to conquer the world. At the same time, the inclusive openness and forward-looking international vision are like a striking red line that runs through Cartier’s creative history. As Cartier’s signature collection, the Tank watch is even more so. Following the successful launch of the Tank Américaine and Tank Française watches, the Tank Anglaise watch stands out again and becomes the focus of worldwide attention.
    Tank Anglaise watches are very ‘Tank’. Compact shape, clear lines, but full of tension. Its design is atmospheric, and the characteristics of the Tank watch are fully equipped: the overall design of the case strap, Roman numerals, minute track, sword-shaped blue steel hands. What distinguishes it from other Tank watches is that the crown is hidden in the vertical lugs, and the overall structure forms a perfect symmetry.
    In terms of pursuing minimalist style, this watch has made breakthrough progress. The special design of the crown integrated into the vertical lugs is a proper proof of the strict aesthetic requirements and integrated design philosophy of Louis Cartier: all shapes will become a whole, coherent and clear; looking at the Tank Anglaise watch from the side, The design of the crown embedded in the vertical lugs is like the wheels of a tank.
    Tank Anglaise watches are available in three sizes for men and women, and are available in white, yellow and rose gold. The large test model is equipped with Cartier’s 1904MC workshop refined movement, and the beautiful structure of the movement can be seen through the transparent sapphire crystal back.
    The history of Tank watches will continue to be written down and never stop.
