Cartier: The Tank Watch: Timeless Style

This handsome monograph charts the evolution of one of the most coveted items of modern style, showcasing the extraordinary craftsmanship of the House of Cartier. The Tank Watch, designed by Louis Cartier in 1917, is an icon of modern timepiece design. One of the world’s first square wristwatches, its functionality is rivaled only by its elegance; it represents a perfect combination of fine watchmaking and the jeweler’s art. The Tank has been creatively reinterpreted by Cartier in many models—from the Chinese Tank to the Crash Watch to the recent Tank Anglaise—while always remaining faithful to Louis Cartier’s original concept.Through designs from Cartier’s rich archives, historical models, and photographs of famous clients from Clark Gable to Andy Warhol, this volume celebrates one of Cartier’s greatest masterpieces.
