The Print

Estimate: $800

One of the most iconic watches of all time, the Tank is effortlessly timeless and transcends any era of style. Louis Cartier designed the prototype in 1917 taking inspiration from the Renault FT tank. The artist created this artwork enthralled by the idea that one of the most elegant design objects of the 20th century was inspired by a war machine; the idea that something can be emptied of its negative content and repurposed for good. Woven inspiration is kept simple in this piece with five rivets from the Renault FT tank placed on the straps. The time is set to 7:22 (or 19h22) for the year the Tank Louis Cartier was first released.
