The history of Cartier Tank Cintree

Watches Cartier Tank Cintree

Cartier opted for a rectangular form for the Tank Cintrée watch, which it launched in 1921. Derived from the iconic Tank, the Tank Cintrée has some features that were truly exceptional for a timepiece of this era. With its arched, golden case with a satin finish, flanked by polished or satin-finished gold, a crown finished in pearl and inset with a cabochon sapphire, and its brightly-finished dial with a track-style minute circle set off by stylized Roman numerals, the Tank Cintrée is emblematic of the House of Cartier’s elegance and refinement during the Art Deco area. The shapely form of the Tank Cintrée was designed to complement the curve of the wrist and anticipated the American Tank watch that was launched in the 1980s.
