Launched in 1921, two years after the original Cartier Tank debuted in 1919, the slim and elongated Tank Cintree has remained in the brand’s repertoire intermittently ever since its launch all those years ago. Typically offered as a limited edition offering irrespective of variant, the example we have here is yet another of the collection's limited edition references, the ref. 2718 - celebrating the collection’s 100th anniversary. Featuring 150 numbered pieces, this limited edition collection stays true to the Cintree’s aesthetic and heritage as a typically low-volume model. It thus retains the Cintree’s iconic standing amongst Cartier’s collectors and was offered only to select Cartier VIPs. Featuring the Cintree’s signature precious metal construction, this 18k yellow gold beauty spans 46mm lug to lug and is just 23mm wide. With its eggshell beige dial, blued steel Breguet hands, and explosive black Roman numerals, the ref. 2718 retains the essence of Cartier in as classical a fashion as we have learned to expect from the French watchmaker.
