Cartier is known by collectors as “The jeweler of kings and/or the king of jewelers”.
Founded by Louis-François Cartier in Paris in 1847, the legendary firm, from its beginnings, has been associated with exquisite craftsmanship and classic, sophisticated elegance. Cartier’s watches attracted a diverse clientele with the world of fashion, politics, and society, with names like Wallace Simpson, Princess Grace of Monaco, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Andy Warhol, and even Formula 1 superstar, Ayrton Senna.
In 1904, Cartier created the world’s first men’s wristwatch to incorporate integrated lugs for the renowned aviator, Alberto Santos Dumont. Following up on the success of this early timepiece, Cartier realized the Baignoire and Tortue in 1912, and in 1917, the revolutionary “Tank”. Designed near the end of World War I, the inspiration for the Tank’s groundbreaking design came from the top view of the very first Renault military tank vehicle deployed that same year.
This specimen is very interesting and carries a “Paris” Dial.
