The present lot is a fine and lovely lady’s Tank wristwatch realized with the use of white gold, one of the heaviest materials. The Tank Louis Cartier was first made in 1922 and the original model, worn by Louis Cartier himself, came with rounded bran card shoulders, which gave it an Art Deco feel. The present watch is a more squared version of the Louis Cartier, in 18k white gold with cabochon crown to adjust the time. The dial has the classical layout with white background, black outer Roman numerals and inner closed track from minutes, all in almost mint conditions. The white-gold integrated bracelet is very well preserved and presents a beautiful untouched tiled texture like the case that still present the original satin finish. Simple and elegant, this wristwatch is the perfect accessory for every woman.
