Tank

The rectangular Tank watch: elegance and creativity

Tank Must

In 1917, Louis Cartier took inspiration from a purity of line to create a new watch shape. The two parallel brancards are an established signature of the Tank watch. Inspired by the design of a combat vehicle viewed from above, this watch follows one clear graphic principle: the brancards were the treads, the case was the turret. From this combination came a new and fundamental principal: the case attachments are aligned with the strap to maintain the rhythm of the design.
