Description

Maunder Watch Co are pleased to offer this rare Cartier Tank Asymétrique Ref. 2488

In 1999, Cartier created two sets of watches produced in left-handed and right-handed versions, each in a 99-piece limited run to commemorate the Macau Handover. The watch, in a smaller size, had a Roman-numeral dial but with an applied 18K gold “9” above the Arabic-numeral “9” to form “99”. All of these watches have the dimensions of 23mm by 32mm.

The parallelogram-shaped case featured a dial that was canted diagonally, so that when your hands are on a steering wheel at nine and three o’clock, the dial is oriented upright. The watch was later rechristened the Tank Asymétrique and became one of the most coveted and recognisable timepieces thanks to its total originality in design.

This watch is being presented with it’s original box and paperwork from 1999.

All our watches have undergone a thorough inspection of water resistance, accuracy, functionality and are authenticated by our specialist watch makers.

The images provided on our website are taken in-house and are of the watch we have in stock.

This watch is now available to view at our shop located in the Burlington Arcade, Mayfair.
