Dimepiece Cartier Tank Allongée

Regular price $14,995 USD

An eighteen carat yellow gold Cartier Tank Allongée on its original eighteen carat gold bracelet ‘beads of rice’ style bracelet with factory pavé set case. This is another take on Cartier’s most iconic and successful model. The history of the Tank watch is very well known, and this version, the ‘Allongée’, was another adaptation of it. Slightly longer and skinnier through the width, it is perhaps the most elegant Tank to come in this size. The proportions on this model really work. Sad to think that this elegant and beautifully proportioned model no longer sits in the Cartier line today.

The case is flanked by two rows of beautifully set diamonds, adding a glamorous flair to this versatile watch. The dial is everything one comes to love about Cartier watches: egg shell dial, black Roman numerals, blue steeled hands and the discreet "hidden" signature, this time located at the classic seven o'clock position. The dial is signed "Swiss" at the six o’clock position. The original crystal is fitted to the watch and has an elegant slight bombé shape. A slight veer from classic Cartier styling is the use of a diamond set into the crown instead of the classic cabochon sapphire. This design cue would later on become the hallmark for their highest level of watch making, known as the "CPCP" or "Priveé Collection".

The fully signed and hallmarked watch case back is held in place by a number of small gold screws, beneath which is a Cartier quartz movement. Overall the watch is in excellent original condition, more than likely unpolished and with only light wear.
