The Cartier Tank was introduced in 1917 and has since become a staple of the brand due to its truly iconic design. The Tank squelette is one of the largest Cartier Tank versions available. Even with these larger dimensions, the height of the case remains quite slender. The case is made from palladium, which does not tarnish as easily and retains a shiny lustre even under environmental conditions.
The skeletonized movement further enhances this watch and makes this Tank appealing in a different way to its more common counterpart.
