Footnotes

  • Cartier's innovative approach towards aperture and dial design is exemplified in the Tank à Vis model. Inspired by its precessor, the water resistant Tank of 1931, this model features two aperture retrograde display windows for the hour and calendar functions. By integrating this complications into a rectangular movement unique to the Tank à Vis watchcase, Cartier evinces its commitment to stylish and original functionality.
