Designed personally by Louis Cartier in 1917 and patterned after an army tank, Cartier's Tank watches symbolized speed and achievement and have become one of the company's iconic models.

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.
