Diamonds are a girl's best friend


Is it only a watch ? Or a piece of jewelry? It's only an exceptional Cartier Tank Louis, factory set with diamonds and rubies.

All the aesthetic codes of the Tank Louis Cartier are in place. Immediately recognizable by its iconic design , this watch is enhanced by its original paving. It is undeniably very elegant. A jeweler's watch of great rarity. Cartier produced very little quantity of haute joaillerie watches over the years. This may be a unique piece by the Maison. 

How to wear it

This Tank Louis Cartier is exceptional. A luxury watch that you will wear in the evening like a jewel but whose style can also be offbeat with jeans and a shirt. This model nevertheless retains a reasonable size which avoids the "flashy" vibe that some modern pieces can carry.

Why did Françoise choose it ?

Is it really necessary ? Just admire this Tank Louis! A collector's item with a mechanical movement that may be unique. A diamond on the crown. This tank is the perfect bridge between the 2 universe of Cartier : jewellery and horlogy. 


It was in 1917 that the Tank watch, known as Tank Normale, appeared; in honor of the heroes of the First World War, its design is inspired by the first tanks. Five years later, the Tank Louis Cartier was designed, a model very similar to the first, but with a more elongated dial and thinner, rounded shafts. Several generations follow one another, retaining the same identity codes while adapting to new watchmaking technologies such as quartz. Many celebrities adopt it such as Jackie Kennedy, Lady Diana, Alain Delon, Catherine Deneuve, Yves Saint-Laurent, Gary Cooper, Johnny Hallyday or Sophia Coppola to name but a few. Will you be next?
