    I recently acquired this Cartier Patek Philippe tank watch. I can not find anything like it. Any help would be great. Thank you.

    stunning and very valuable and collectable! First thing. Look for hand stamp numbers and do not polish them off! This is your first clue to originality. No hand stamped numbers? attributable to Cartier but no cigar. They can be anywhere, Usually hidden and faint on the back of a lug.

    next we need to know the mm size.

    cool 2-tone art deco watch.

    This is what I found after looking closer. Thank you for the help. Any clue to what year it is?

    Great watch I can only add that the movement appears to be a caliber 8 and made between 1935 an 1968

    Thank you all for the information. This watch has got me hooked. I am very intrigued by it. Would this be considered a men’s or women’s watch? Sorry for my simple questions as I am very new to any type of watch. Also all other Cartier watches that I have seen have a distinct border this one does not. Did they ever produce watches without the border?
