Cartier Tank à guichets Watch
Introduced this year, the Tank à guichets (above) is actually the 21st–century reappearance of a model from the company's archives.
"... It has two apertures, one for jumping hours in the upper part of the dial and, below it, a slightly larger slot through which... minutes can be seen," wrote Nick Foulkes in the December 2 Financial Times.
A limited and numbered series of 100 have been made.
Details from the website:
- 18K pink gold, jumping hours and continuous minutes complication with apertures.
18K pink gold octagonal crown set with a faceted sapphire.
Hand-sewn full–grain alligator strap.
18K pink gold adjustable deployant buckle.
Workshop–crafted mechanical movement with manual winding, calibre 9752 MC.
Thickness: 4.4 mm.
Bridges decorated with the interlocking Cartier double-C motif.
Water–resistant to 30 meters/100 feet.
£16,100 ($27,909; €23,855).
I must say that if I were forced to wear either the new ultra–luxe version or a classic tank (below)
I'd opt for the classic.
