Very rare, this eccentric Cartier perfectly encapsulates the brand’s daring and unusual designs of the 1970s. Flat, large and wide, this specimen takes inspiration from the iconic Tank model presenting a yellow gold case with flat edges and a double cornice. Its presence on the wrist is further emphasize by the full bracelet made in leather that perfectly wraps the wrist, creating an effect of absolute elegance and epitome between jewel and watch. Furthermore, the essential and minimalist dial with long and thin indexes capable of split the dial in 12 sectors , the Cartier signature and the blue steel sward hands enables the viewer to immediately recognize the design as being inherently «Cartier».
