 +**Tank** is a legendary wristwatch first created [[1917]] in the [[Art Déco]] style by [[Louis Cartier]]. The then groundbreaking design (common watches at the time were consistently round) was inspired by the silhouette of a bird's-eye view of a tank and features parallel vertical side bars. Most of the models, especially the classic ones, have 12 very distinctive Roman numerals and a rectangular [[chemin de fer]]-[[minuterie]]. Other features: [[Blued]] hands; polygon crown decorated with faceted [[sapphire]]-[[cabochon]].
