Essay: In 1921 Cartier offered the first variation of the Tank Normale - the Tank Cintrée (“curved” in French), which slimmed the square into an elongated rectangle and curved the case to follow the shape of the wrist. Made in small numbers, its elegance was personified by Fred Astaire, who bought one in 1928.
