Out of all the Must Tank variations that were produced during Cartier’s Must Tank era, the Art Deco Tank is undoubtedly one of the most loved and revered by Cartier enthusiasts. The Must de Cartier Tank Art Deco was a limited edition release with just 1000 pieces produced in the SM and LM size. This wonderful example we have on hand comes is the highly desirable and collectible LM size which was produced for men.

The Art Deco Tank was originally released in 1995 as a tribute to the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts held in 1925. The event held in Paris, attracted thousands of visitors and was seen as a major turning point in the world of design as it introduced to the world the new style moderne of architecture, interior decoration, furniture, glass, jewelry and other decorative arts. It remains an important moment in the history of decorative arts and continues to inspire and influence designers and artists today.

Overall, this Cartier Tank Art Deco ref 1616 is in excellent condition. The solid silver case has some minor scratches but it has likely never been polished and it retains its beautiful original edges. All the hallmarks are very crisp on the case and caseback as well. The original Art Deco dial is in very clean condition with no blemishes. The original hands as well as the blue spinel cabochon is in fantastic shape. The quartz movement was just serviced by our watchmaker in February of 2023 and has a new battery installed.  The watch comes with a new taupe epsom leather strap from Jones in Tokyo and comes with its original Cartier steel deployant buckle. The watch also comes with a Must de Cartier outer/inner box.
