About Tank Louis:

While the Cartier Tank Normale introduced the style, it was arguably the Tank Louis Cartier that truly put the watch on the map. Affectionately known as the “LC Tank” among collectors, this was the personal watch of its creator and namesake, Louis Cartier. Slightly larger than the Cartier Tank Normale, with smoother lines and a more masculine feel, it has been the choice of influential figures throughout history. American painter, Pop art figurehead, and legend of the New York scene Andy Warhol was often photographed wearing his, although he reportedly never wound it. “I don’t really wear a Tank to tell the time, I wear a Tank because it is the watch to wear!” he admitted once during an interview. He certainly wasn’t alone in that opinion, although others did wind and set their LC Tanks before wearing them.
