Description

Cartier launched the Tank Chinoise watch in 1922, blending Chinese architectural elements into the Tank Chinoise collection. The original Tank Chinoise case was inspired by the Chinese porticos with a pair of horizontal bars placed over the vertical case flanks. It features East Asian motifs from the Art Deco period and includes the iconic Mystery Clocks and vanity cases, along with other decorative objects.
