    - The present Tank Monopoussoir is part of the acclaimed Collection Privée Cartier Paris, and limited to 100 pieces. The geometry of the case is equally stunning, the large rectangular 18k pink gold case is incredibly comfortable to wear on the wrist.

    - The engraving on the caseback of the watch further confirms that just 100 pieces of the Tank Monopoussoir were manufactured in pink gold. The timepiece is driven by the calibre 045MC, a THA ébauche that was pioneered by F.P. Journe and was pivotal in the early careers of independent watchmakers like Denis Flageollet and Vianney Halter.

    - It comes with its original Cartier Guarantee, additional Collection Privée Cartier Paris guarantee, and velvet pouch.

    - Bought in October 2006, it is preserved in excellent overall condition with crisp hallmarks.

  • Artist Biography



    With the Constitution of 1848 came a new standard for luxury in France. Founded one year prior by Louis-Francois Cartier, the house of Cartier was one of the first to use platinum in jewelry making. This incredibly expensive material became the stepping-stone for Cartier to experiment in form, mechanisms and attitude. It helped men move from pocket watches to wristwatches, effectively making the watch much more functional and prominent in a man's overall wardrobe.

    Cartier did not only touch on functionality. Inspired by a commissioned painting by George Barbier featuring a black panther at the feet of an elegantly bejeweled woman, Cartier began incorporating wild animals in his designs—most notably, Cartier Panthère rings, bangle bracelets and watches. Yet it wasn't until the late 1960s that the house of Cartier debuted their iconic yellow and rose gold LOVE collection, which includes the famous bracelet that only a special screwdriver can open.
