Introduction

In 1917, Louis Cartier introduced the Tank- which has arguably become the brand's most iconic model. It is storied that the first prototype Tank was presented to the US General John Pershing a year later. Since then, Cartier has created many versions of the Tank design, including but not limited to, the Tank Louis, Tank Cintrée, and Tank Normale. The Tank Americaine was introduced in 1989 and immediately became a classic. Inspired by the lines of the Tank Cintrée, the Americaine features a slightly bolder and more athletic profile.

Condition

The overall condition of the watch is very good. Dial appears to be free of any noticable imperfections. Crystal has some light surface scratches, mainly around the bottom left region. Case is generally in excellent shape with only a few faint surface abrasions, mostly on the high polished areas. Strap and buckle seem to be original to the watch.
