Watch or jewel? Why choose...

Description

18k gold case, sharp brancards with rounded edges, railway minute scale, blue hands and a jewel on the crown: all the codes of the Tank Louis Cartier are here. But here, the jewel is no classic sapphire. No, it's an upside diamond. That is a first clue of what this watch really is : a real gem. 

Another clue that this watch may be a piece of jewelry that gives time rather than "just a watch" is the solid gold bracelet. Made of little soft balls, it's very comfortable to wear. 

How to wear it

If it was bigger, it could have been an overkill, a overdressed watch only for casual events. Being mini, it's in fact very discrete and somebody could mistake this golden watch for a bracelet ! So no worries, wear it in every circumstances (well, maybe not for a tennis match) ! 

Why did Françoise choose it?

Because Françoise loves Tanks ! Classic, Must, jumbo to mini size, yellow gold, white gold, steel, whatever : they are all great ! Some Tanks may be considered outsiders from their family : that's particularly the case with this one. Françoise loved the play between a watch and a piece of jewelery.

History

It was in 1917 that the Tank watch, known as Normale, appeared in honor of the heroes of the First World War and whose design was 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, keeping 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?
