I bought this book a couple years ago, and I still enjoy looking through it today. Besides being an excellent historical account on the origins of the Tank watch, it also includes a detailed chronological picture catalogue of all Tank watches produced by Cartier. I recommend it to anyone who owns or admires the Tank and wants to learn more about the origins of this much-copied Cartier classic.

Format: Hardcover
This book is great! It is essential to the collection of any Cartier Collector. It takes the reader through the history of the Cartier Tank Watch, beginning in the early 1900s. It shows different models and how they've changed as style has. A great Coffee table book, one to show style, sophistication, and chic. ONE TRENDY BOOK!

I purchased this book soon after I purchased a pre-owned vermeil Cartier Tank, and came to appreciate it even more after I purchased a pre-owned Tank Francaise - my dream watch. It is one of those rare breed of book - the type of nonfiction book I can look at over and over and over, for the rest of my life, if possible.

Though surely translated from the Italian this is absolutely beautifully written, and the photos/illustrations are also fabulous. I have now seen the 2014 edition, which is very difficult to find a copy of, even in Cleveland, and I had to get it through long-distance Interlibrary Loan. Though also beautifully written, and with still more fabulous photos and illustrations (it did drop some of my favorites though, to compensate), I have actually found several typo's so far and it lacks a certain something. Perhaps it is because I'm so extremely familiar with much of the text in the first edition and I haven't had enough chance to really think about new phrases in the new edition? One thing I missed was something comparable to the first edition's named watchmakers in the top tiers of watches as to reputation and quality. I really wanted to see what the second edition had to say about that but Cologni didn't get into it again. In all, this coffee-table book symbolizes to me sophistication, elegance, historical perspective, and truly beautiful writing and illustrating.
