Designed by Louis Cartier in 1916, the legendary Tank watch is an icon of modern watchmaking. One of the first square-shaped wristwatches (the first was the legendary Santos watch designed by Cartier in 1904), the functionality of this watch is matched only by its timeless elegance. It embodies the perfect alliance between watchmaking excellence and geometric rigor. For more than a century, Cartier reinterpreted the Tank through famous modules such as the Chinese Tank, the Tank Crash or the recent Tank Anglaise, while remaining faithful to the original concept of Louis Cartier. Cartier: The Tank Watch, Icon of Time celebrates the history of a most remarkable watch piece through docunents from the Maison's archives, beautiful photos of historical models from the Cartier Collection and photos of famous customers, going from Clark Gable. Andy Warhol and Catherine Deneuve wearing on their wrist their favorite watch.
