Cartier unveils the elegant new Tank MC

Cartier’s classic Tank is the timepiece to which all other dress watches aspire. Originally created by Louis Cartier in 1917, who took inspiration from Renault’s right-angled battle tanks after witnessing them trundle along the Western front, the watch has since undergone many transformations.

From the square-faced Tank Français and the simple Tank Solo, to the brilliantly slim Tank Americaine and the heftier Tank Anglais – there’s an option to suit every wrist. Read our watch columnist's guide to the Tank family here.

The latest addition to the stable is Cartier’s Tank MC. With a generous face and masculine square dial, the watch contains the first movement Cartier created in-house, the 1904 MC, and is available in all steel or pink gold. For the classic Tank look, opt for the pink gold steel piece with white dial and chocolate brown strap. Solid.
