A JEWEL OF A WATCH
With a metal bracelet that places it firmly in the Tank collection tradition, the Tank Française watch also pays homage to French architecture, owing to its classic square shape.
The bracelet's metal links this model to the Tank collection tradition as it recalls the spirit of the military vehicles that inspired Cartier to create the first Tank watch in 1917. The square case of the Tank Française model integrates seamlessly into the bracelet, as if it were itself another link.
Introduced in 1996, the Tank Française watch was an immediate, immense success. The sidepieces, typical of the Tank collection, are smoothed and softened in this model; the angles are delicately beveled, giving this version its particular character.
