The Tank MC Two-tone Skeleton watch bears witness to Cartier’s watchmaking vision: combining technical prowess and creative elegance – the guarantee of timepieces with a strong personality. It is the blend of these two criteria of excellence, both technical and aesthetic, that drives the Maison’s spirit of innovation. The Tank MC Two-tone Skeleton watch reflects this visionary energy, displaying all the character traits of a unique signature piece.

The character traits of a timeless timepiece

With its oversize numerals and the imposing presence of its signature bridges, the Tank MC Two-tone Skeleton watch is a timepiece for a man of style and wit, a man who masters the rules of elegance so perfectly that he knows how to break them. This is Cartier style: a refined design and the search for clean-cut aesthetics. The Tank MC Two-tone Skeleton watch takes its place as a watch whose perfect proportions mean that is forever contemporary.

Watchmaking craftsmanship and timeless elegance.
The powerful identity of a signature skeleton

The Tank MC Two-tone Skeleton watch houses the first two-tone version of the calibre 9611 MC with a character that stems from the oversize Roman numerals so characteristic of Cartier. In this openwork architecture, the III, VI, IX et XII structure the movement and define its appearance. A two-tone colour treatment accentuates its aesthetic identity: the black areas evoke the technical nature of this movement with its numerous cut-outs; the angles of the calibre, meanwhile, are coated with a fine gold layer that matches the case and highlights the traditional chamfering of Fine Watchmaking skeletons that is carried out by hand. This new interpretation of the Tank MC Two-tone Skeleton watch is an enriching addition to Cartier creative heritage that combines watchmaking craftsmanship and timeless elegance.
