You'd be forgiven for assuming that Cartier's reversible Tank Basculante is a derivative of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso. However, there's much more to Cartier's design than meets the eye. Initially released in the 1930s (within a year of the Reverso), the Basculante never saw the same massive success as Jaeger-LeCoultre's watch. The original Basculante is rare, and was never serialised in the same way as the Reverso did. Instead of forming a product line in and of itself, the Basculante was a standalone model amongst other distinctive Cartier watches, and was intermittently produced in the 1990s and 2000s.

Mechanically, the Basculante is also different from the Reverso. The Basculante uses a more complex hinge system which has multiple pivots. Instead of flipping along the horizontal axis, it flips vertically. This is also reflected in the positioning of the crown, which is at 12 o'clock for a more symmetrical appearance.

The watch is in excellent condition with light scratches to the case. The leather strap is in very good used condition and comes with its original Cartier deployant clasp. This watch comes with the Cartier inner and outer box set. The outer card has some wear from storage, and the inner cushion and lining has some wear. Both booklets and an unsigned guarantee card is also included.

CARTIER

Cartier comfortably sits at the intersection between fine watchmaking and art, combining years of heritage with eye-catching and unique case designs. From its inception in the turn of the 20th Century, Cartier has earned a well-deserved reputation for being a manufacture that has successfully transformed the humble wristwatch from a soldier's tool into a true object of desire.
