Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This handsome monograph charts the evolution of one of the most coveted items of modern style, showcasing the extraordinary craftsmanship of the House of Cartier. The Tank Watch, designed by Louis Cartier in 1917, is an icon of modern timepiece design. One of the worlds first square wristwatches, its functionality is rivaled only by its elegance; it represents a perfect combination of fine watchmaking and the jewelers art. The Tank has been creatively reinterpreted by Cartier in many models—from the Chinese Tank to the Crash Watch to the recent Tank Anglaise—while always remaining faithful to Louis Cartiers original concept.Through designs from Cartiers rich archives, historical models, and photographs of famous clients from Clark Gable to Andy Warhol, this volume celebrates one of Cartiers greatest masterpieces.
