This genuine vintage Cartier Tank Louis LC Small 78087 is in excellent condition. It features a yellow gold plated case, a white roman numeral dial and a manual wind Cartier 78-1 movement. 


This Carter Tank Louis Cartier, or Tank LC, is best known amongst collectors as the "Extra Plate" or "Extra Thin" and is one of the thinnest Cartier Tanks produced and features a total thickness of approximately 5mm.
This particular example we believe to be released to the French market only due to the hand-engraved Cartier logo on the caseback. To our knowledge, these were only release by Cartier in the French market and were not done elsewhere. 
The case measures 21mm by 28mm and features no screws on the side of the case securing the case back (which is typically seen with Cartier watches). This allows the case to have a slimmer profile and hence referred to as the Tank Louis Ultra Thin or Extra Plate.


Each watch is guaranteed to be genuine and checked by our experienced team to ensure the highest quality.
