The Tank Américaine, conceived by the Cartier New York boutique in 1989, is an exclusive model crafted solely in precious metals, drawing a curious parallel with the Rolex Day-Date. Its distinctive features include an elongated, convex case with robust lugs and a screw back. Representing the mid-size variant, reference 1726 like the present one caters to both gentlemen and ladies with its proportions. This particular watch stands out as one of Cartier’s most opulent creations. The 18k white-gold case is adorned with a matching bracelet, featuring links of various sizes, all embellished with brilliant-cut diamonds. The meticulous craftsmanship extends to the dial, which boasts engine guilloché engraving, iconic black Roman numerals, and elegant blued sword hands. Notably, the crown, traditionally adorned with a sapphire, now dazzles with a diamond, ensuring a harmonious visual flow. The silvered dial discreetly incorporates a date window within the minute track at the six o’clock position. This watch is truly exceptional, showcasing a rarely seen configuration. Accompanied by the warranty, it serves as a magnificent testament to Cartier’s elevated craftsmanship, combining sophistication and extravagance in a truly remarkable timepiece.
