Cartier was one of the first to use platinum in jewelry making which became the stepping-stone for the brand to experiment in form. The lot here offered is an elegant version of Tank whose rectangular case has been made in platinum and strikingly well preserved. With a leather strap closed by a Cartier buckle, the dial of this timepiece has an engine-turned decoration with Roman numerals, secret signature at VII o’clock and blued steel spade hands with any signs of use.
