This is the Cartier Tank Arrondie Mecanique Extra-Plate Or Jaune. The Tank family is recognizable because of its bold straight lines (brancards) and angular corners. Yet, the Tank Arrondie (french for “rounded”) deviates from this family tradition. Thus the average collector might pause, pondering over the paradoxical interplay of a rounded Tank. However, the Tank Arrondie, signifies more than mere curvature; it symbolizes a departure from the angular constraints of tradition. Cartier dares to traverse the boundaries of convention, presenting a Tank with softened edges, a gentle nod to the allure of the cushion shape.

This Tank Arrondie Extra Plate or "extra flat" model was in production during the late 80's and into the 90's. It is powered by the esteemed Frederique Piguet caliber 21 manual winding movement, renowned for its slim profile and unwavering quality. This Tank Arrondie has all the essential Cartier details you want - black painted Roman numerals on a crisp white guilloche dial, the blue sapphire cabochon on the crown, and blued steel sword hands to match. It is said that these guilloche dial Tank Arrondie's had less production numbers than the more commonly found Tank Louis or Santos Dumont 18k YG extra plate models. In fact, this Arrondie dial design without the traditional rail tracks is quite rare compared to the version with the rail tracks.

Overall, this Tank Arrondie is in fantastic condition. The case is in beautiful shape and retains its original beautiful rounded curves. The original guilloche white dial is in clean condition with no visible blemishes. The blued steel handset and blue sapphire cabochon crown are all original and is in great condition. The caliber 21 movement was serviced by the previous owner and is currently running at an excellent +7.8 seconds per day at the upright position. The watch comes with its original Cartier outer/inner box, guarantee card holder, International certificate of guarantee, as well as its instruction manual.
