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.

THE DIAL

Close-up view of the guilloché dial and blue hands, a signature Cartier look.

THE CASE

Slightly more sporty than the original Tank Cintree, the Tank Americaine shares a strong resemblance with some of the earliest Tanks from the 1920's.

TIMING MACHINE READOUT

This reading was taken (crown down) with a ONEOF Accuracy Boutique Edition timing machine at time of cataloging. It is provided as a courtesy only, and shall not be construed as a warranty or guarantee of any kind. Please refer to our terms and conditions of sale for more information.

Condition

The overall condition is pristine. Aside from a few light surface abrasions, the watch appears to have been worn sparingly. The original strap exhibits some signs of usage, however it is still in an exemplary state.

Please Note: Due to CITES considerations, if the watch is to be shipped outside of the USA, an alternative leather strap to the existing exotic version, shall be provided.

Our Perspective

The popularity, as well as the prices, of the Cartier Tank have increased exponentionally over the course of the last few years. Taking many cues from the Cintree, the Tank Americane is a modern watch with vintage sensibilities.
