TANK series – the dialogue with the round

In Cartier’s series of works, there is a good example, that is the most classic Evergreen Cartier watch Tank (Tank) series. The prototype of the Tank Table was completed in 1917 and the actual mass production launch was in 1919. The classic elements are: the table was a square or rectangular, left and right side of the table frame to extend up and down to form a wide table with the lug table. Tank table was born, the surface of the table and the case shape is mostly circular, this shape of the human race and the celestial body of time to run the association. Tank table into a square, in addition to the shape of the watch made a new perspective, in fact, there are aesthetic and functional considerations. Because the square is more round and more convenient case and the lugs of the ear, so that the lug as the case of the structural components, that is, the two combined into one, not just in the case of the surrounding hard Bangbang plus two for the connection strap And the occurrence of the unexpected device. Now it seems that the design concept seems natural, nothing surprising; but if the time and space back to the late nineteenth century, the early twentieth century, will find it valuable. At that time in the form of a table, has been gradually converted from the watch into a watch. Watch to watch, in addition to the size of the movement and other technical problems to overcome, the appearance of the original design, is to think outside the case can be fixed strap, so that it can be worn on the wrist. From the first watch appeared to the tank table appearance, during which the design, step by step toward the watch is not just “pocket watch plus strap” only. According to the Cartier data pointed out that the real aesthetic concept with the jewelry to think about the location of the lugs to the brand, the tank table is the first time ever. In other words, Cartier watch not only as a wrist watch worn on the timer, but also a worn jewelry to consider. In this consideration, the classic elements of the table in the tank appeared. Watchcase neatly highlight the case, as the most natural lugs, strap as if extended from the table out. From the side, watch and watch the body to form a circle. By the table body of the square last interpretation of a round, square and round contrast, totally natural, has become a tank table in the design of one of the important concepts.

TANK ring – continuation of the classic elements

Tanks in addition to jewelry from the aesthetic thinking of its overall structure, early also have a diamond-type models. In its 1919 launch of the six tank table, there is a table in both sides of the table set with a rose-cut diamond. But according to Cartier’s own statement, the tank table and another series Santos, the original is the least often coupled with two series of jewelry decoration, until the 1980s, the tank table really close to the jewelry industry. Jewelry version of the tank table, while maintaining the basic elements of the table and style of the tank, from metal processing, gemstones to the work of precious stones color arrangement, and even the strap material, play a multi-change appearance. For example, the table frame by diamond-cut lathe, such as round drill, ladder drill or emerald-type lathe, the formation of the surface of the table and the surface line of the visual effects, or with different gems, resulting in watches of the times style change. Tank’s jewelry series is the most popular tank ring (Bague Tank), the tank ring has a neat and simple lines of the tank table, the gem in a way to insert into the ring and ring into the same width, and into the ring circle arc, square Of the gems as a part of the ring circle, the continuation of the tank side and round the nature of the dialogue. In addition to the natural transformation of the ring from the square gem stone ring characteristics, the gem of their own lathe, especially colored gemstones, the kind of convex, under the faceted faceted turner, also convex convex lathe turner and carver Bright ingenious in one. Than the tank table, the tank ring in the stone and color changes better, has become an important entry in recent years, Cartier jewelry classic style.
