About Cartier Watches*
Founded in Paris, France, in 1847 by Louis-François Cartier, the company remained under family control until 1964.
Cartier has a long history of sales to royalty and celebrities. For example, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has been seen wearing the Cartier Ballon Bleu timepiece. King Edward VII of England referred to Cartier as “the jeweller of kings and the king of jewellers.” For his coronation in 1902, Edward VII ordered 27 tiaras and issued a royal warrant to Cartier in 1904.
The Cartier Tank Française. Just last year, Cartier celebrated the 100th anniversary of their famous Tank watch. The Cartier Tank was designed by Louis Cartier himself in 1917, and according to legend, the design was inspired by the new military tanks that fought on the battlefields during World War I. The distinct ridged lines and rectangular shape of the Tank timepiece was intriguing indeed during a time when watches were typically round. Over the last century, the Tank watch has remained a mainstay in Cartier’s watch collections, with the brand producing countless iterations of the timepiece. The most popular version among them is the modern Tank Française watch, which made its debut in 1996. Although the integrated bracelet and full metal look of the Tank Française is the most ubiquitous style, Cartier has introduced a few leather strap versions too. And whilst the stainless steel Tank Française is by far the most popular edition, there are some two-tone, yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, platinum, and diamond models too. In terms of functionality, the Cartier Tank Française collection runs the gamut from basic time-only models to chronograph versions. Furthermore, there quartz caliber editions, as well as mechanical movement versions too.
The Cartier Tank Française watch has rightfully earned its iconic status with luxury watch enthusiasts. One of Cartier’s greatest hits, the Tank Française, is a superbly designed watch that marries timeless elegance and modern approachability.
