Almost eight decades after the Tank was first introduced in 1917 to much acclaim, Cartier released another charming reinterpretation with the Cartier Tank Francaise collection. Crafted in the same vein as its predecessor, its curved, square-shaped case features an octagonal crown set with a synthetic spinel cabochon. Available in ladies, midsize, and mens sizes, the Cartier Tank Francaise is forged from steel, gold, or a combination of materials and features either a Quartz or automatic movement. The dial conveys the same elegant black Roman Numerals, minute markers and blued steel hands. Functions may range from a simple hour and minute combo or a triple hand with date or chronograph. A captivating retelling of the well-loved classic, the Cartier Tank Francaise is also water resistant up to 30m.
