100 Years of the Cartier Tank

by George Cramer "In the Beginning (1917-1922)

It was exactly 100 years ago that Cartier created its first Tank watch. But to call that watch a creation is a little odd because that was, in fact, a prototype given to the commander of American Expeditionary Forces in Europe, General John Pershing.

Since then, the Tank has always been a source of inspiration — for not only Cartier — but for the industry at large. And while nothing has been confirmed yet, I am sure that that sometime this year, La Maison will throw a birthday party for the Tank, the likes of which we’ve never seen before."

Damned fine reference article.

Think that I enjoyed the one written discussing to role of '80s film watches even more.
