The Cartier Tank Asymetrique was released by Cartier in 1996 alongside the thematic ‘Magical Art of Cartier’, given the reference number 2488, and made in a Limited Edition in Platinum of 100 pieces. The present example is numbered 5 of 100, and comes with its original Warranty papers, booklets, and accessories as sold new; a Cartier box will be provided (although not pictured).
The condition of this Cartier Tank Asymetrique is excellent. The case remains unpolished with normal and very light wear from sparing use. The watch is powered by the calibre 9P2, and the watch features the iconic sapphire cabochon crown with a beaded exterior. The watch comes with its original Cartier platinum deployment buckle; the leater strap appears to be a generic replacement.
