The Cartier Divan Asymmetric is one of the most memorable and fascinating watch models. After the successful launch of the Tank Francaise in 1995, an occasion that was hard to beat, La Maison presented quietly a completely new Tank model in 2002. the Tank Divan, with a small size powered by a quartz movement for ladies, like the present lot, and in a larger cased version, with automatic caliber. All models were launched in steel, yellow gold and white—or yellow gold with diamonds as this lot offered here, that is the most rare combination, full in white gold in perfect conditions with crisp hallmarks on the back and a set of diamonds in front, around the dial that embellishes the uncommon diagonal case. The dial, given the shape of the case, seems cut but remains fixed to the classic Cartier style with outer black Roman numerals, inner 5 mines track and blue steel sward hands. Further embellished by a diamond-set Cartier buckle the present lot is sold on a satin strap and with its original Box and Papers.
