Legendary Parisian luxury brand Cartier launches new Tank Anglaise watch


Legendary Parisian luxury brand Cartier hosted its dazzling Never Stop Tank evening recently at the Pavilion Downtown Dubai. A Cocktail party and a special exhibition commemorated the “Never Stop Tank Legend” celebrating the launch of its new Tank Anglaise watch. Artists, designers and influential guests attended the event including Middle Eastern celebrities such as the well known Lebanese singer and philanthropist Ragheb Alama who wore the Cartier TANK Anglaise Gold & Style Large Model watch and Egyptian singer and TV personality Sherine Abdel Wahab who wore the Cartier High Jewellery Evening Bag & Cartier Ballon Bleu gold watch.


Cartier’s Tank Anglaise watch is a logical progression of its famous Tank watch created by Louis Cartier in 1917, which was inspired by the revolutionary Renault tanks used in the First World War. It flaunts a generous volume and includes characteristic Tank features such as the strap seamlessly incorporated into the case, Roman numerals, blued-steel sword-shaped hands and a streamlined crown. It is available in three ladies and men’s sizes in three colours of gold. The large models are powered by the Manufacture MC 1904 movement, visible through the open back.


Cartier’s famous Tank’s story continues. Hence, Never Stop Tank…
