The Cartier Tank Obus debuted in 1923. With its distinctive square case, what truly sets this timepiece apart are its iconic bullet-form lugs, adding a touch of unique charm and character that has made it a timeless icon. This particular example of the Obus, the reference 1630-2 was released in the 1990's and is powered by the high quality quartz caliber 157. It has all the collector favorite elements of the Obus including an elongated spinel crown, beautiful ivory colored dial adorned with black painted Roman numerals, and a distinctive blued steel Breguet hands.

Overall, this Tank Obus is in fantastic condition. The case is in beautiful, unpolished shape and retains its original edge. The original ivory colored dial is in clean condition with no blemishes. The blue steel handset and blue sapphire cabochon crown are both original and is in great condition. The quartz movement powering the watch was just serviced by Cartier Japan in January 2024 with a new battery installed. The service papers from the Cartier boutique in Ibaraki Japan is included alongside a service pouch and Cartier box. The watch also comes with its original Cartier 18k yellow gold pin buckle. The watch is paired with a generic calf black strap.
