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 Cartier’s original concept.Through designs from Cartier’s rich archives, historical models, and photographs of famous clients from Clark Gable to Andy Warhol, this volume celebrates one of Cartier’s greatest masterpieces.
