Cartier’s new approach in designing the Tank Américaine revitalizes the watch’s ultra-profiled lines
CARTIER TANK AMÉRICAINE
Historically, Cartier’s Tank Américaine was based on the curved case of the 1921 Tank Cintrée, making it an extended family member of the Tank design. Introduced in 1988, it unveiled a distinctive curved rectangular case, a more compact profile and rounded brancards. This year, the latest iteration of the legendary timepiece comes with a new aesthetic and ergonomic approach. The purity of its form is further reinforced by the dial’s style and the flawless integration of the brancards into of the strap extension. The new Tank Américaine is driven by the equally new Manufacture 1899 MC movement. As for the finishing touches, the watch comes in various configurations, including all-gold and steel versions with leather straps or metal bracelets, rose gold variants with diamonds and leather straps or diamond-paved models in white and rose gold with metal bracelets. In the end, like all the other Tank watches, it remains timeless and will be appreciated by the aesthetes of today and tomorrow.
