Tank Watch

Cartier Tank Watch - A man has limited choices when it comes to accessories and a watch is something that one must have. If you buy one expensive thing it should be a Cartier Tank Watch. It never goes out of style and can become a family heirloom for generations to come.


The Tank was created by Louis Cartier in 1917 and inspired by the new Renault tanks that he saw on the Western Front. The prototype watch was presented to General John Pershing of the American Expeditionary Force. The Tank has become one of the most highly coveted and copied wristwatches of all time, and has graced the wrists of such style icons such as Jackie Kennedy, Princess Diana, Andy Warhol and Yves Saint Laurent, amongst countless others.
