Considering its modern looks and contemporary proportions, it’s easy to forget that Cartier’s emblematic Tank watch was released exactly 100 years ago this year—and it’s a century filled with famous fans including Catherine Deneuve, Andy Warhol, Yves Saint Laurent and even Princess Diana. To celebrate this momentous birthday, Cartier is unleashing a fleet of new Tanks into the world, including two new Tank Cintrée Skeleton watches in a limited edition of 100 pieces each.

DIAMONDS AND PEARLS
Bearing prongs with a distinctive “M”-shaped silhouette, Mikimoto’s new M Collection features White South Sea Cultured pearls (in the three sizes of 11.5mm, 12mm and 12.5mm) lined with diamonds on earrings, a ring and a pendant necklace; resulting in a modern and minimalist parure that will never go out of style.
