Cartier Tank Basculante
A watch with a fantastic history and timeless style, the Cartier Tank Basculante was released in 1933, purposed as a golf of polo player’s timepiece, strong and functional enough to be worn by players of these sports and not suffer damage as a result. What makes the watch so fascinating is its fold-over case, which allows it to completely flip upside down inside a swinging frame, whilst expertly protecting the mechanism inside.
The Tank Basculante is a rare and extraordinary watch, and also features a pristine dial, classic shape and reassuringly familiar Cartier aesthetic. For those on the hunt for an icon of watchmaking, courtesy of one of the world’s most famous brands, the Basculante makes an excellent choice.
