The Cartier Tank is a design icon that has stood the test of time well. John F Kennedy was an owner of a Cartier Tank as was his stylish wife.
The Cartier Tank has spawned a few variations however the original model is probably the best. The original Tank for men is possibly a touch too small by modern standards however this model should not be discarded.
The Louis Cartier Tank should not be confused with the gold plated Must de Cartier Tank or Cartier Tank Solo. Both of these models are not solid gold and should be avoided.
The 18K gold Louis Cartier Tank has in recent years been available only as a quartz piece. Ideally a pre-owned mechanical version should be the best piece to own.
