Event: Cartier Tank Experience
WHO: Cartier & The Hour Glass
WHAT: For Cartier, it all starts with the design. This radical concept, conceived by one of the only Maisons capable of designing creations that form a unique collection of cult jewellery and watchmaking designs, will become Cartier’s signature.
The instantly recognisable Tank is based on four main principles of creation:
- The purity of the line
- The accuracy of the shape
- The precision of proportion
- The precious details
In 1917, Louis Cartier took inspiration from the purity of the line to create a new watch shape. The two parallel brancards are an established signature of the Tank watch. Inspired by the design of a combat vehicle viewed from above, this watch follows one clear graphics principle: the brancards were the treads, the case was the turret.
From this combination came a new and fundamental principle: the case attachments are aligned with the strap to maintain the rhythm of the design.
To discover the Tank watch design in its entirety, the Cartier Tank Experience aims to bring one on a cultural journey via multiple touchpoints.
Open to all interested members of the public, the Cartier Tank Experience runs from 27 October 2021 to 5 December 2021. Keen individuals are encouraged to indicate registration interest on https://www.thehourglass.com/news/cartier-tank-experience/ as viewing slots are limited.
