Cartier Tank Basculante 2391 – Millenium Collection Privée – 18K Yellow Gold – Limited Edition
CARTIER TANK BASCULANTE 2391 – MILLENIUM COLLECTION PRIVE’E – 18K YELLOW GOLD – LIMITED EDITION
In 1933 Cartier expanded the Tank line with the introduction of the Basculante.
Retaining the rectangular shape the watch was engineered to be able to turn the body of the watch completely over to protect the face.
The Basculante was flipped vertically through 360 degrees, which gave the watch another useful application.
The Basculante can sit upright when the frame is laid flat, thus giving the wearer the opportunity to use the watch as a desktop or travel clock.
The case is perfectly symmetrical and has the winding crown placed at the top of the case, directly below the blue crystal, or cabochon to use Cartier parlance, that is used to lift the case out of its frame to flip it over.
The watch doesn’t have a seconds hand, but the minute and hour hands are made from blued steel.
