Cartier : Tank Folle watch: free-spirited forms/2012

As a crafter of forms, Cartier has given its creativity free reign in the daring new Tank Folle watch. Channelling the extravagance and whimsy of the 1960s Crash watch, this new piece shakes up expectations, boldly asserting its freedom with deconstructed yet harmonious lines.

The watch cheekily checks all the boxes in the Tank legacy: the sun-style dial, Roman numerals and blued-steel sword-shaped hands are reinterpreted with a bejewelled twist as the brancards and winding mechanism are strewn with brilliant-cut diamonds.

The watch is powered by a manual-winding mechanical movement. This surprising, creative and stylish Tank collection is available in a limited series of 200 timepieces.
