Cartier Resurrects Avant-Garde Watch Design from 1936

Cartier recently unveiled the Privé Tank Asymétrique, a refreshed and revamped tank watch based on an original design from 1936. 

Featuring bold shapes and a striking design, the dial is slightly rotated for a skewed but striking look that's equal parts handsome and artful. And its impressively thin profile at just 6.38mm adds even more style points.

Due out in Dec. of this year, the solid dial variations will be offered in three different variations — platinum, 18K pink gold, and 18k yellow gold — each limited to 100 examples. Cartier will also release the watch in three additional skeletonized styles, limited to 100 examples each as well, but we're not particularly keen on its looks.
