The Cartier Tank Basculante was introduced in 1932. As sports activities became increasingly popular, the Tank Basculante was especially developed to protect the glass while playing sports. Featuring a rectangular case, the face of the watch was engineered to flip upside down inside its frame, allowing the wearer to turn it completely over to protect the watch glass. Timeless in form and function, it’s can be worn casually, or for dressier occasions. Explore our collection of Cartier Tank Basculante watches for men at SwissWatchExpo.com.
