The 2017 Tank Louis Cartier watch cen­te­nary model in 18k pink gold

The shape of Louis Cartier’s clas­sic rec­tan­gu­lar dress watch, the Tank, was orig­i­nally un­veiled in 1917, in­spired by the dis­tinc­tive an­gu­lar treads of early ar­moured ve­hi­cles used by the French army in World War I. This year the style, which has barely changed since its de­but, is be­ing cel­e­brated in a cen­te­nary col­lec­tion hit­ting the shops just in time for black-tie fes­tiv­i­ties. Six new ver­sions of the uni­sex Tank Louis Cartier are be­ing pro­duced, but to Esquire’s mind the best is un­doubt­edly this large-size (33.7 x 25.5mm), 18k pink gold model mounted on a brown semi-matte croc­o­dile leather strap, with a blue sapphire cabo­chon and match­ing blue steel hands. Wear with one of this sea­son’s choco­late brown vel­vet tuxes and you’re good to go.
