The original Cartier Tank can be traced back to 1919. The design was made to look like the plan view of a WWI-era Renault FT-17 tank. The watch design was extremely popular, embraced by the glitterati and entwined with the history of Cartier. The Tank Francaise, introduced in 1996, sought to update the classic Tank with a larger overall size, curved crystal and wide tapered sides. The style accentuates the positive attributes of the Tank and has been a success for Cartier.

Any reference to condition in a condition report will not include a full description of condition, and for example, may not specify all faults, alteration, adaptation, mechanical replacements or imperfections to the movement, case, or dial.

Prospective buyers should inspect each lot in person and make their own evaluation of the lot. They must understand that any statement made by Fortuna Auction LLC ("Fortuna") is merely a subjective, qualified statement and does not constitute a representation, warranty, or assumption of liability by Fortuna.
