Vintage Cartier Tank Watch ,swiss, Mens Size 1970's, Original Box, Manual Wind:
You are viewing a most iconic item, the Cartier Tank watch . Designed by Louis Cartier in 1917 and inspired by the introduction of the tank on the western front of WWI and to honor their sacrifice. In men's size, I purchased it in 1976 in New York and always wore it only on special occasions . It is the 20mm, 18K gold electroplated model with manual wind movement with blue sapphire cabochon and blue hands. The dimensions are approx. 30mm long and 23mm wide(not including cabochon). Over the years I wore it less and less. There is the normal wear and minor scratching expected from normal use. The original black leather strap was replaced as can be seen. The watch stopped working a few years ago and, as can be seen in the picture close-ups, there are some loose of amber colored flake residue on the dial face ... probably needs a cleaning and 'tune-up' . It has never been abused . Can't remember the last time I had it serviced, it sat in a drawer the last fifteen years after it stopped working.
