Today’s Haute Time Watch of the Day is The Tank Louis Cartier Sapphire Skeleton by Cartier.
The newest member of the Cartier Tank family emerges from SIHH 2014 and combines the tank shape we all know and love with a spectacular patent-pending movement created by Cartier. This amazing launch by Cartier features an open-worked skeleton 9616 MC calibre, manual-winding movement surrounded by a sapphire base plate and a 3 day power reserve. The sapphire base-plate creates the appearance of a floating movement inside the case.
The case of The Tank Louis Cartier Sapphire Skeleton is featured here in 18k white gold and measures 30mm’s wide and 39.2mm’s long. Finished with a beautiful blue sapphire cabochon on the crown, blued steel hands and a sapphire case back revealing the artistry of the movement, this piece is a must have.
Fitted with a black alligator strap with an adjustable folding, white gold buckle, The Tank Louis Cartier Sapphire Skeleton is a wonderful addition to the Cartier Tank family.
