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 yellow gold with cabochon crown to adjust the time. It is very well preserved with still present the original satin finish. The dial has the classical layout with white background, black outer Roman numerals and inner closed track from minutes, all in almost mint conditions.
