Why We Love it

No, it’s not a Tank. And yes, it deserves your attention!

While Parisian jeweler to the stars Cartier may be best known in horological circles for its famed Tank Louis watch, there are numerous other models in their archives that are both beautiful and compelling. In recent years, Cartier has been pouring through their history and re-imagining selections for contemporary release as part of their highly regarded Privé Collection.

The original Cloche de Cartier debuted in the 1920s as a bell-shaped jewelry piece in the form of a brooch intended for ladies. Immediately identifiable as something different in a lineup that consists mainly of rectangular watches, the Cloche works brilliantly as a wristwatch and as an art object - a perfect blend of form and function in a way only Cartier could achieve.

The particular example we have here is from Cartier's 2021 collection. Housed in a 37mm platinum case with a ruby-set winding crown and a sapphire crystal, it features a satin silver dial with printed black Roman indices, an outer ‘railroad’ minute track, and blued-steel ‘sword’ handset. Powered by the manually wound Caliber 1917, it comes paired to a black alligator leather strap with a matching platinum ardillon pin buckle.

Produced in a numbered edition of just 100 pieces, this Cloche is amongst the most elegantly executed Cartier Privé models to date. This is a very, very special piece indeed — a future classic for certain.

Overall Condition

The case is in outstanding, as-new condition showing virtually no wear. Factory sticker is in place on caseback. Satin silver dial with printed 'Roman' indices is in as-new condition with matching blued-steel 'sword' handset. Ruby cabochon crown. Caseback numbered 075/100.

Brand Story

+
Despite being a purveyor of haute joaillerie, Cartier has had a long tradition of making watches.
It started in 1907, when founder Louis Cartier made what was one of the first wristwatches for his friend Alberto Santos-Dumont. In the following years, the brand made a name for itself with its most famous wristwatch, the Tank, in all its multitudinous forms.
Cartier introduced the Tank in 1917 — which was supposedly inspired by the Renault FT-17 tanks seen on the battlefields of World War I — with a run of six pieces. (According to legend, these were given to American General John J. Pershing and his staff.) Cartier took the look of the Renault tank's treads and applied it to the watch’s lugs, which were integrated via brancards into the case itself. That first run of six pieces increased to thirty-three by 1920, and by the end of the 20th Century, that number stood well in the hundreds of thousands. Indeed, in sheer volume alone, the Tank — in all its various models — is Cartier's largest line of watches.
The Tank Louis was introduced in 1922, followed close on the heels of the Asian-influenced Tank Chinoise. The Chinoise, released amidst a mania for jewelry inspired by the Orient, has a square rather than rectangular case and lugs that resemble the portico of a Chinese pagoda.
From its debut, the Tank would see many variations, each in keeping with Louis Cartier’s taste for clean lines and perfect symmetry. Each variant — from the original Tank to the Tank Louis to the Cintrée with its flirtatious, curvaceous lines — has its passionate devotees. Rudolph Valentino, that sensual star of the silver screen, insisted on wearing his Tank onscreen in The Son of the Sheik, and Clark Gable, Andy Warhol, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis were among those who sported a one throughout the years.
Other model lines, including the Santos (based upon the original model crafted for Alberto Santos-Dumont) and the Pasha, have developed devoted followers. Indeed, the maison is unique as one of the few jewelry brands to elicit as much passion from collectors as dedicated watch companies.
