Founded by Louis-François Cartier in Paris in 1847, the legendary firm, from its beginnings, has been associated with exquisite craftsmanship and classic, sophisticated elegance. 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. This rare Tank called Tank Luis “Jumbo” by its large case is bigger than the normal one with 33 × 26 mm case in which an automatic movement is housed that is very unusual for a tank model. The present lot in 18k yellow gold with cabochon crown to adjust the time is realized uniquely in yellow gold and is stunning for the conditions of the case with rounded lugs. The dial has the classical layout with white background, black outer Roman numerals and closed inner track from minutes, all in almost mint conditions.
