Cartier Must De Tank Bordeaux Dial

$1,600.00

 

Year: Circa 1980s

Model: Must De Cartier Tank

Movement: Quartz

Contents: Watch Only

Case: The case size comes in at 28 x 21mm. The case is vermeil, which means it's a Sterling Silver case with a very thick, multi-layered, gold coating.  The plating is in phenomenal condition. The gold plating is fully intact with normal signs of wear.

Dial: The dial is Bordeaux, a very nice shade of burgundy. The dial has normal spidering on the clear lacquer like most Must De Tanks from the 80s and 90s. The logo and such are fully intact with no signs of wear.

Strap & Buckle: The watch comes on a Hirsch strap perfectly matching the dial color. The watch does have its original Cartier buckle.

The Must de Cartier line, created by Robert Hocq and Alain-Dominique Perrin, aimed to attract new customers by offering accessories and leather goods with the essence of Cartier. The Must de Cartier Tank wristwatch was the brand's most iconic item, made from sterling silver with a minimum of 10k plating at 2.5 microns thick. Launched in 1976, the line marked key milestones for the brand, including being the first non-precious metal watch and the first mass-produced watch. The brand produced around 3000 watches per year before the Must line, and by the end of the 70s, they were producing over 160,000 watches per year. The dials varied, with faux-stone dials resembling onyx and lapis, lacquer dials in wood and tortoiseshell, and the Trinity dial featuring five stripes in a center section in yellow, white, and rose gold. The Trinity dial was a favorite among fans.

A design that has stayed true to what it started out to be. The Cartier tank deserves to be in every watch collection. Its size might be smaller than most watches, but that doesn't mean it doesn't look great on the wrist. This specific Tank is a great example of some of the more unique and fun dials Cartier released in the early era of the Must De Cartier Tank.
