The Tank Américaine was designed by the New York Cartier boutique in 1989 and has only been produced in precious metals. If someone wants to make a comparison, it can be said under this point of view that the Américaine is the Day-Date for Rolex. Its case has an elongated and convex shape, with massive lugs and screw back. The reference 1726 is the mid-size execution of the Tank Américaine, perfect for gentlemen as well as ladies. The watch has a silvered dial with engine guilloché engraving, the iconic black painted Roman numerals and elegant blued sword hands. The dial also discreetly incorporates a date window in the minute track at the six o’ clock position. The 18k white-gold case is in wonderful condition with the octagonal crown topped with the blue sapphire cabochon and is further embellished with an original 18k bracelet.
