1970s Ladies Cartier Tank Paris 18k YG w/ Original 18k Deployant Clasp
There is something truly special about a Cartier tank. The Cartier Tank is elegant, sophisticated, and a pure icon of design. When it comes to the woman in history who have worn the Cartier Tank these women are just as powerful, elegant, and as timeless as the watch itself. The Cartier Tank becomes a signature yet functional piece within the discerning woman's wardrobe, much like a long strand of pearls, a Burberry trench coat, or a Louis Vuitton Speedy handbag. We have a saying here at Craft+Tailored "It's More Than Just Watches" and it couldn't be more true with the Tank. The moment you place the tank onto your wrist you become attached. It becomes much more than a simple timekeeping device, it turns into a treasured amulet. Maybe this is the reason why it has graced the wrist of many of the world's most iconic, elite, and classy women alike including Princess Dianah and Jackie Kennedy Onassis among many others.
This 1970's solid 18k yellow gold manually wound Cartier Tank is well preserved and is the real deal. This example retains its original PARIS signed porcelain dial, is on an original Carter croc strap and retains it's matching 18k yellow gold Cartier deployment clasp. It doesn't get better than this when looking for a yellow gold Cartier Tank!
