Cartier was founded in 1847 in Paris by the jeweller Louis-François Cartier, who in 1899 handed over to his three sons. They would establish the company internationally, not least by making the Cartier name a favourite among the crowned heads of Europe. The lot here offered is an elegant version of Tank, invented by Cartier in 1917 and now the brand's most iconic model, whose rectangular case has been made in white gold and strikingly well preserved, cabochon sapphire-set winding-crown and screws on the band to secure the case back. With a leather strap closed by a white-gold Cartier deployante, the dial of this timepiece has an clean white decoration with Roman numerals, inner minute track, and yellow steel spade hands with any signs of use.
