After last weeks blog on the stunning Cartier ‘Chronoflex’ Tank Americaine, it is clear that a lot of you would love the gift of Cartier this Christmas! We have some gorgeous Cartier watches available now, particularly models which are reminiscent to the Art Deco era and iconic pre-WW2 watch design. Let’s take a look at a couple of our top picks in the shop…
Cartier Tank Watch
When we talk about luxury watches, Cartier and the Cartier Tank certainly does spring to mind. While companies like Rolex and Patek Philippe are known for making innovative watch designs, Cartier is known for traditional watches of the past with a modern twist. We adore the Cartier Tank collection.
Cartier states that the Tank was “worn by Louis Cartier himself, the ‘Tank Louis Cartier’ watch sets the standard to be upheld by all Tank watches. In contrast to the assertive choice of rectangular form and proud lines, the tops of the lugs were rounded, embodying the contribution made by Louis Cartier to the modern style later known as Art Deco”.
Cartier Yellow Gold & Diamond Tank Divan Watch
Our first pick for Christmas is this Cartier 18 carat yellow gold and diamond Tank Divan watch with matching diamond set pin buckle. Diamond set winding crown. The Divan has a unique horizontally rectangular shape and is a beautiful addition to Cartier’s Tank collection. The watch combines Cartier’s understated design with high-quality engineering. The Tank Divan is not only a absolutely stunning dress watch, but also is a highly reliable timepiece.
Cartier Ladies 18ct Tank Americaine Watch
Another favourite of ours is the Cartier ladies 18ct yellow gold tank Americaine watch with matching pin buckle. This is a really elegant watch and a fabulous example of the art of Cartier available to own today.
