This beautiful model is a Cartier Tank Française and has a unique diamond setting on the case as well as on the crown. The Tank's name and design pays homage to the Renault FT-17, a French tank used during the First World War. It may sound bizarre for a watch, especially one as elegant as this, to derive its name from military equipment. However, the Renault was the first tank to house its weapon in a fully rotating turret. It was a small, but powerful design.
