The Cartier Tank is one of the most long-lasting models of the production. Introduced in 1917, it has been presented in various editions and shapes but remained a classic among the classics, a timeless watch that defines what elegance is. And furthermore, it is certainly the most emblematic edition of the famous French manufacture.
Up for auction is a women's Cartier Tank Americaine, Ref. 2482, quartz wristwatch with Cartier bracelet with double fold hidden clasp.

The silver matte dial features painted black radial Roman numerals, secret Cartier signature at VII, and blued steel baton hands.
