Designed personally by Louis Cartier in 1917 and patterned after an army tank, Cartier's iconic Tank watch symbolized speed and achievement. Before cost-cutting measures brought about the widespread use of cheaper quartz movements for many wristwatches, Cartier contracted with watch manufacturers to produce mechanical movements designed to last a lifetime. Using traditional watchmaking practices, these gifted craftsmen poured individual attention into each wristwatch. As a result, Cartier wristwatches with mechanical movements are often more sought after by collectors than their quartz counterparts. Today's offering showcases this ladies vermeil mechanical Cartier Tank that. It has just finished a true expertly restoration and presents in perfect restored condition. Our photos don't do it justice. On the wrist it looks like new. It has an iconic tank case, classic Roman dial, gold epee hands, sapphire topped crown, and hand-wound Cartier movement. As part of the restoration, the movement has just been fully serviced by a master watchmaker. For the finishing touch a new strap has been installed with the same grain as the original would have had.

Named "Jeweler to the Kings and the King of Jewelers" by Edward VII, Cartier has attracted Russian, British, and Indian aristocrats as well as some of the most esteemed celebrities since Louis-Françoise Cartier founded his namesake brand in 1847.

During the 1930s, Cartier’s directrice-artistique Jeanne Toussaint sent Cartier designers to the zoo where their innovations led to Cartier’s renowned panther and tiger designs. When Duchess of Windsor commissioned Cartier to create two 3-D panther brooches (one composed with cabochon emeralds, the second with diamonds and sapphires) in 1948, it was soon after that the panther became the symbol of Cartier.

Beyond the symbolic panther, two of Cartier’s most desired collections remain the Cartier Tank and the Cartier LOVE Series.
