A Gorgeous Coffeetable Homage to the Cartier Tank Watch: Jackie O's Fave Timepiece
This famous photo of the Stylish One has been instrumental (so to speak) in assuring the Tank a permanent place on the top of every fashionista's Lust List. A symbol of luxe and elegance for both sexes, it has a history as colorful as its pedigree & wide variety of fans.
Designed by Louis Cartier in 1917, it has graced the wrists of Clark Gable, Andy Warhol, silent-film heartthrob Rudolph Valentino, and, more recently, Madonna - all in different guises, from the Chinese Tank to the Tank Crash to the Tank Anglaise.
