This special watch we have on offer here is the Cartier Tank à Vis Dual Time in white gold from the CPCP series. There were four dual time watches that were released in the series- the others being the Cintree, Tank, and the Tonneau Dual Time. We're happy to offer this as a full set.
This watch employs a Piaget based manual wind movement, the caliber 9901MC, where the first position of the crown allows the user to independently jump the hour hand of the bottom clock, while the second position forwards the two clocks simultaneously. It has an attractive and original layout for a dual time watch with two clocks featured in the Tank a Vis case. The dial itself has a beautiful guilloche pattern with two rosette motifs underneath each handset. The rosette motif off course is one of the signature design used throughout the CPCP series and having two rosettes in the dial certainly makes this one stand out from the other models.
Regarding the Tank à Vis case, the Tank Étanche served as the inspiration for the case design. The Tank à Vis has the same bezel construction as the vintage inspiration, with Cartier also adding four visible screws on each corner. The case measures a masculine 28mm by 32mm, with a lug to lug length of 39mm. At 8mm in thickness, it also manages to maintain some presence on the wrist and easily fits under the cuff of a shirt. This Tank à Vis Dual Time also features an open caseback, allowing you to appreciate the craftsmenship of the beautiful MC 9901 manual wind movement.
Overall, this piece is in excellent condition. It underwent a complete servicing in May 2021, and is in full working order. The watch comes with a red leather Cartier strap (worn condition) along with its original Cartier stamped white gold deployant buckle. It will also come with a Taupe Epsom strap from Molequin. This watch also comes as a full set with the coveted CPCP mahogany wood box with (both inner and outer box) as well as the red leather inner booklet sleeve, guarantee booklet, and CPCP user manual.
