Cartier Tank Americaine W26009C9
Over the last century, the Tank has presented itself as one of the most timeless and adaptable wristwatches in the world. It has been through a huge number of variations—Normale, Cintree, Chinoise, Obus, Basculante, Asymetrique and Américaine. It is the Américaine that we are celebrating today with our latest selection from Watchfinder & Co. Launched in 1989, the original Tank Américaine featured classic Roman numeral hour markers and a chapter ring that was curved at the top and bottom. The blued steel hands were the finishing touch, sans a seconds hand, giving the watch a pared-back, almost minimalist look. The flat case back and curved front edge gave the watch a very nice presence on the wrist. Until 2017, the Américaine was only produced in precious metals, but on the 100th anniversary of the Tank, Cartier introduced the Américaine in steel for the first time. The present example is a rare Américaine in yellow gold from 1997. Fitted with a quartz movement, the watch is water resistant up to 30 meters.
