Cartier Tank Solo XL Automatic WSTA0029 With Box & Papers Mens Watch....31mm
Founded in 1847 in Paris by Louis-François Cartier as a jewelry store, they designed watches and clocks which were then made for them by other manufacturers. As a son of the original founder, Louis Cartier created several designs for wristwatches which did much to establish the brand’s fame. The Santos and the Tank models, the former created in 1904 and the latter in 1917, were among the first and most iconic wristwatch designs ever produced. These were largely manufactured by the European Watch and Clock Co. (an early formation of Jaeger-LeCoultre). Later, Cartier watches would be made by Tavannes, Wittnauer, Longines, Universal, Patek Philippe, Movado, and ETA. The company remained under family control until 1964, and is currently owned by the Richemont Group.
The Cartier Tank Solo X-Large Men's Automatic Steel Watch is a combination of macho and sleek looks. This watch has a rectangular-shaped case that is made in stainless steel, which is a very strong and resistant material that keeps water and moisture at bay and also protects the machinery inside from any external blow. The Swiss self-winding mechanical movement with its caliber 1847 allows the watch to function meticulously. The dial is silvered opaline that displays sword-shaped blue steel hands that move to give you hours, minutes and seconds. Date display exhibits calendar in front of you that shows at 6 o’ clock position.
