Released in 2004 in a limited edition series of 50 pieces, the Tank Cintrée collection was the only “Collection Privée, Cartier Paris” model to not feature a “Paris” signature on the dial. Its curved case derives from its predecessor for the first time produced in 1921. Model always very appreciated for its discreet elegance, the Tank has maintained a long-lasting success also ending up on the wrist of some important characters of the 20th century such as Andy Warhol, Yves St. Laurent or Elizabeth Taylor. This modern platinum version was only manufactured in 50 pieces, with the common black dial. This means that the present watch, which comes with Breguet-style hands like the original Tank Cintrée watches of the 1920s, it’s a unique piece that shows the uncommon red decoration dial with white background and engraved N° 1 on the caseback. The modern Tank Cintrée maintained the same size of 46x 23 mm wide as the vintage Cintrée watch in order to feel the same sensations. An elegant and fashionable object which can be we worn every day but, at the same time, a nice piece of collection.
