  • Catalogue Essay

    The present lady’s Cartier Tank Divan encased in a white gold and diamond-set rectangular-shaped case is powered by the firm’s quartz cal. 145. Measuring 32mm in width, the elegant wristwatch paired beautifully with a brand new burgundy red crocodile strap brings out the iconic silvered dial with Roman numerals even more. Perfect for any lavish ball, the present well-preserved timepiece would be a nice Christmas gift for the discerned lady collector.

  • 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.
