The Cartier Tank Chinoise was unveiled in 1922 as a more masculine variant of the initial Tank models. The yellow gold case shows up in two parts with a case back secured by screws and a sapphire set winding crown. The Tank Chinoise grasped its inspiration from the architectural design of the Chinese temple portals, while maintaining a very similar structure to the 1919 Tank. The dial is essential with white color, black Roman numerals, inner minutes track and the signature Blued steel hands all in nice conditions. The strap is closed by the Cartier buckle in yellow gold.
