Cartier Privé Relaunches the Tank Asymétrique

From its rich goldsmith watchmaker custom, the French Maison Cartier has assembled an unparalleled inheritance in making entrancing molded watches . Since 2017, the Cartier Privé assortment features the plan of a portion of the brand’s incredible models. Not at all like the 1998-2008 Collection Privée Cartier Paris (a.k.a CPCP), which was portrayed by exacting codes (uniform guilloché dials and Roman numerals, with Cartier Paris logo and a rosette, burgundy ties, and so on… ), the new Cartier Privé assortment leaves more extension for imagination and varieties. After the Crash , the Tank Cintrée and the Tonneau , it is the ideal opportunity for the Tank Asymétrique to be reinterpreted.

The 1930s were a time of extraordinary inventiveness for Cartier. With Art Deco, wristwatches arrived in a huge number of mathematical structures. The notable Tank topic went through various varieties. Among these, the proudly exquisite Tank Asymétrique, which was referred to at the time as the Parallélogramme or Losange. Made in 1936, the model stands apart with its unique shifted rectangular case. To reproduce the 2020 Tank Asymétrique, Cartier took motivation from the first 1936 model with its particular triple-haul development. With it, the square shape turned into a capsule and everything on the dial was moved 30°. Rather than the mark Roman numerals, it highlights Arabic numerals isolated by rod style hour markers.
