A legend in their own right, the French Maison Cartier has crafted the finest watches and in some of the most unique shapes. The Privé collection is a tribute to some of the most iconic brand models. The older watches in this collection was designed with uniform guilloche dials and Roman numerals, the brand logo and very strict designs. The new timepiece Privé Tank Asymétrique watch has more creativity and offers more variations. This new look for a beautiful Art Deco watch had to capture the original design inspiration and add a flair that would allow the legacy to continue.
The Devil Is In the Details
Originally the tilted rectangular case was quite a radical change from all the normal round case shapes, and even the rectangular ones for that matter. Taking the design elements of the distinctive triple-lug construction Cartier shifted everything on the dial thirty degrees and used Arabic numerals instead of the Roman numerals that were signature on previous models.
This new version of the Cartier Privé Tank Asymétrique Watch is created with a 47.15mm x 26.2mm case, and crafted in some striking choices. There is either a modern look pink gold with grey dial and strap or a beautiful yellow gold and an attractive champagne dial and brown strap or a exquisite platinum that is set with a silver-color dial, ruby cabochon and grey strap. Each of these timepieces are elegant and amazing choices for individuals and their discerning tastes. The inside of each of these beauties is the calibre 1917, thin at only 2.9mm and hand wound with 3Hz and moderate 38 hours of power reserve.
The first time ever for this collection to get skeletonized versions in all three choices, and no surprise that the Cartier Privé Tank Asymétrique Watch will be limited to 100 timepieces in each version. We all know that all good things come to those who wait, and there is never enough to always go around. So no matter which choice is a fit for you, know that quality and reliability is still the heart of the brand, no fears, no worry, but remember that availability might be tight, because luxury is always limited.
