History: With its origins dating to 1917, the Cartier Tank wristwatch is one of the most iconic watches and central to Cartier design philosophy. The Cartier Tank was originally envisaged as a wristwatch which would recall the lines of a tank, hence the name. Famous wearers include J. Kennedy, Pricess Diana, Yves Saint Laurent amongst many sporting celebrities, film and TV stars. The Cartier Tank Francaise was introduced in 1996 as a natural evolution of Cartier's Tank range.
