Inspired by the Renault tanks that the French jeweler saw in battle on the Western Front during the first World War, the Tank has been the foundation of Cartier since 1917. This example is the Tank released as part of the Must de Cartier line which was simultaneously a marketing concept and a brand name under the French maison first introduced in 1977. The watch paid tribute to the original Tank Louis Cartier and was launched with more than a dozen different dial options, like dark blue, red, and even a striped pattern. This example is the highly coveted Black onyx lacquer dial with silver painted Roman numerals and rail track minute circles.

Overall, this piece is in excellent vintage condition. The case has some light stratches but retains its beautiful lines and all the hallmarks are very crisp on the case and caseback. The plastic crystal is overall clean without any obvious scratches. The original black dial has cracks throughout the dial - which is common for these lacquer dial Must Tanks from this age. The dial has no blemishes or discoloration. The original rhodium hands as well as the blue spinel cabochon is in excellent shape. The movement was just serviced by our watchmaker in May 2022 and is currently running at -3.5 sec/day. The watch comes with a Delugs brown saffiano strap as well as its original Cartier gold plated buckle. It comes with its original Cartier box, guarantee holder, certificate of guarantee, and papers.
