In the course of years, many versions of this model were released such as the Anglaise, Française, Louis Cartier, MC or Solo. One of the most appreciated is, anyway, the Tank Chinoise, exactly like the present lot offered. The present example cased in platinum is particular and luxurious interpretation of the iconic Tank model firstly produced by Cartier in 1917. This specimen is even more desirable not only for the unusual platinum case preserved in notable conditions and the original 18k whote gold deployant but mainly for the decoration on the bezel where 9 diamonds of different dimensions for each side embellish the watch. The dial has the classical Cartier design with argentè background, inner closed track for minutes and outer Roman numerals.
