The history of the Cartier Tank Américaine

A war is always catastrophic for all involved. It is hard to imagine that the First World War was the source of a wristwatch that was loved and appreciated then and now. The design of the timepiece is inspired by the chainmail of the time and actually there are some visual parallels. Like the Mark IV tank, the Cartier Tank is rectangular and flat. In addition, both models were in their respective areas as absolute novelties. Wristwatches were anything but customary at the time, with most watches still being made as pocket watches.

A particularly elegant model is the Cartier Tank Américaine. It was unveiled in 1989, when world affairs began to focus more and more on America. The trends then led to large, extravagant jewelry. Cartier adapted this development without sacrificing class and exclusivity. The classic tank became a bit elongated and larger, which made the watch generally more eye-catching. Immediately the collection was celebrated by watch lovers from all over the world and the demand did not end. Still today, models of the collection are published, which are appreciated by men and women alike.

How much does a luxury watch from the Cartier Tank Américaine series cost?

The Tank Américaine W2603356 is a simple men's watch with a white gold case and an elegant crocodile leather strap. Inside, a quartz movement is doing its work. The white dial is adorned by large Roman indices. There are also three totalizers, one each at 4 o'clock, 7 o'clock and 12 o'clock. The two main hands and the small hands of the sub-dials are decorated in a simple blue tone and complete the design of the watch perfectly. The price of a second hand Cartier Tank Américaine W2603356 is about 4,500 €.

Another eye-catching model is the Tank Américaine W26015K2. With the yellow-golden case and the bezel of the same color, the ladies watch is a great eye-catcher. Equipped with, the typical for Cartier, large Roman indexes, it is easy to read at any time. A particularly beautiful contrast here are the bright blue hands, which stand out clearly from the white background of the dial and the yellow-gold case. The bracelet is available either as a yellow gold version or with a classic brown crocodile strap. For about 5,100 € you can already get a worn Cartier Américaine W26015K2.

Another very elegant ladies watch is the Tank Américaine W2620032. The feminine rose gold, from which both case and bracelet are made, makes it a real eye-catcher. Especially the uniquely designed bracelet immediately catches the eye, it resembles filigree fish scales and fits perfectly to the wrist. This exclusive design and the extremely high-quality workmanship justify the price of 20,500 € for a used, but very well-preserved model.

The Tank Américaine 1726 is especially popular with ladies who like to exude cool elegance. The watch is made of stylish white gold, the case is additionally set with diamonds. So it became a real gem not only a timepiece. At 6 o'clock it has a date window and the large Roman numbers give the watch the unique recognition value of Cartier. Used but in very good condition you can buy the watch for about 12,000 €.

A very classical model is the Tank Américaine 811905. With the leather strap and yellow-gold case, the watch can be combined both in everyday life as well as for evening wear. Used models are already available for 2,700 €. This makes it a rather cheap Cartier watch and therefore well suited for beginners.
