  • Why are Cartier Tank watches so iconic?
    The Cartier Tank watch, created in 1917 by Louis Cartier, is celebrating its centennial. Inspired by the rigid geometry of the Renault tanks used in the First World War, Cartier designed the simple, rectangular face of the iconic watch. This style was inspired by the shape of the tank when viewed from above: a square flanked by two shafts representing the body and tracks. The dial features angular, graphic Roman numerals that add to its minimalist allure. The Tank comes in several models, such as the ref 2312 case cc371543 Tank Americaine which is the sportiest chronograph version.
  • How can I find the model number for my Cartier watch?
    Cartier watches have two different model numbers, one on the back of the case and one on the paperwork. The model number on the original paperwork begins with a "W" and provides the exact match of the watch, while the four-digit number, which is typically on the back of the case, refers to the case model. The other number, an 8-digit numeral stamped to the case, is the serial number.
