‘The Power of The Tank Americaine’ is the first of a series of short articles about the newer Tanks; the Tanks without a history and created by Cartier Paris after 1985.
Cartier has designed a series of amazing Tank watches in the period 1917-1935. These vintage Tanks are adored by collectors and are seen as the ultimate Tank watch to have. Of course I have nothing against pieces, like for instance the Tank Cintrée, Tank Chinoise or Louis Cartier Tank, these are all simply amazing. But if there is one newly created watch that comes very close to the beauty of these vintage watches and could easily be taken as a vintage watch, it is without any doubt, the Tank Americaine that Cartier Paris designed in 1989.
