A Charming and Iconic Cartier Tank Francais Model Ref: 3217 with a White Roman Dial, Integrated Bracelet, and Octagonal Cabachon Crown from c.2000. With original Cartier Box and Paperwork (Blank date), with Cartier Service Papers from 2006 

The Cartier Tank is the brand’s most iconic model and was designed by Louis Cartier himself in 1917. According to legend, the design was inspired by Renault FT-17, a French tank used during the First World War.

The Cartier Tank is possibly one of the oldest watch designs to remain in production today - a testament to its combination of style AND substance. The current collection is expansive, ensuring there is a size, style, and price point for everyone, surely cementing its place as one of the most popular unisex watches in existence. 

What’s On Offer 

This watch is utterly charming, its slender size only adding to its appeal. This Tank Française has the familiar bold black Roman numerals and blued-steel sword-shaped hands which glide around the white dial, all in great condition and encapsulated under sapphire crystal - can you spot the “secret Cartier signature” hidden in the VII or X numerals too? The case is in excellent condition and boasts the synonymous blue cabochon-cut stone mounted on the octagonal winding crown. One of the most distinct design details of the Tank Française is its integrated metal bracelet and this is no exception, it's in great shape and looks beautiful on the wrist. This delicate yet iconic watch is simply stunning and would also make an absolutely delightful gift.
