【comment】
    The slenderness of the American tanks, the elegance of the French tanks, and the regularity of the Chinese tanks. When the law encounters art, the mind will become trusted. As a result, many unique shapes such as the ‘tank collision’ of the dial, the square tank with the lateral stretching of the dial, and the asymmetrical tank with ‘twisted stretching’ appeared in the sequence of the Cartier watch tank family. This asymmetric parallelogram ‘tank’ was created by Cartier to celebrate Macau’s return to China. As a special edition, Cartier added many monumental elements to the overall design of the watch. For example, the hour marker at 9 o’clock is also marked with ’99’ in black printing and gold engraving, referring to 9 o’clock. At the same time, it also means 1999 when Macau returned to the motherland.
