Catalogue Note

Cartier London launched this model, the 'Large Elongated Curved Tank', in 1969, largely inspired by the design of the 'Tank Cintrée' model from the 1930s. For this series, Cartier London worked with Jaeger-LeCoultre, a firm closely tied to Cartier from the early part of the century.

At the time of production, this model was made in a limited series, and today this is a very rare model to come to auction.
