Macklowe Gallery

The so-called Tank Bracelet—most usually seen or understood as a gold bracelet with sleek, strong and wide geometric links—was actually inspired by a wartime technological advancement: the introduction of the tank during WWI. The gold links of a tank bracelet are meant to mimic the tracks of the tanks. This particular Tank Bracelet by Cartier is exceptional in its unusually ultra-refined design and the warm, alluring glamour that the master jewelry house brings to such a cold, mechanical subject.
