About Cartier Tank Americaine Watches

+
Amidst the uncertainty of war and a disrupted economy, Cartier created something that would go on to live for generations, the Tank watch. Created in 1917, the timepiece is as iconic as they come. The watch was among the firsts to hone an atypical case shape. Louis Cartier took inspiration from the tanks that were used in World War I. Today, the Tank has numerous iterations and variants available for purchase. One thing they all have in common is the aesthetic essence of the original Tank. One such timepiece is the Tank Americaine.

The Americaine was a result of Cartier’s attempt to tap into the changing trends in the market. Cartier was trying to create something bigger than what it was known for. Hence, the Cartier Tank Americaine was born. The watch was inspired by the Cintree model but instead of a completely curved case back, the Tank Americaine had a slightly flat-ish one. The watch has all the features staple to the Cartier family, namely, blue-coated steel hands, Roman numeral hour markers, and of course, the sapphire cabochon crown.
