Cartier Tank History:
One of the most recognisable and well sought after watches. Throughout history, there have been many famous Cartier Tank owners, from Muhammed Ali, Andy Warhol, Princess Diana, and Jacquie Kennedy. Today, the Cartier Tank is one of the must have dress watches in someone's collection, be it male or female.
Louis Cartier invented the Cartier Tank in 1917. Known today as the brand's most iconic watch, the name and design are derived from the Renault FT-17, a French tank that was used in combat throughout World War One. Using rectangular and square lines as the shape of the watch, it keeps a relatively slim profile.
