-Description


カルティエは1847年、ルイ・フランソワ=カルティエが宝石細工師として工房をスタートさせたフランスのブランド。腕時計の分野でも非常に歴史があります。

1917年に誕生し、サントスと並びカルティエの時計の代名詞とも言える角型ウォッチのタンク。

アールデコデザインを取り入れたこの時計は多くの愛好家を生み、彼らはタンキスト(Tankist)と言われています。

モハメド・アリ、ダイアナ妃、イブ・サンローランなどがタンキストとして知られており、その中でもアンディ・ウォーホルは手巻きモデルをゼンマイすら巻かずに付けていたそうです。

この逸話はタンクの魅力はそのスタイルにあるということを物語っています。

そのタンクのディフュージョンラインとして1970年代から作られたのが「マストタンク」シリーズです。

ケースはマストシリーズの特徴でもある、ヴェルメイユという技法が用いられています。

ヴェルメイユは銀無垢(シルバー925)をベースに、20ミクロンの18Kゴールドの薄板を高温高圧で貼り合わせていく技法で、アンティークジュエリーなどで見られます。

ベースがシルバー、かつ非常に厚い金張りのため一般的な金メッキと比べると非常に高級感のある作りになっています。

ケースサイズは横が23mm、縦が30.5mmの当時のメンズサイズで、現行のメンズモデルには無い小ぶりなサイズ感です。

そのため、男女問わずお使い頂けるのがヴィンテージのマストタンクの大きな特徴と言えると思います。

また、マストタンクの文字盤には様々なバリエーションがあります。

この時計はマストタンの定番デザイン、アイボリーダイアルにローマ数字のインデックスの組み合わせ。

アールデコ調の幾何学的なデザイン、適度に主張のあるブラックのプリントにブルースティールの針と非常に良いバランスです。

7時のインデックス、VIIの部分にCARTIERのシークレットサインがあるのがお洒落です。

スクエア(正方形)では無くレクタングル(長方形)の時計、かつゴールドケースというのは、ヴィンテージウォッチでも意外と見つからない組み合わせです。

この時計はクォーツ式のムーブメントが搭載されており、使っていない期間があっても時刻合わせをする必要が無いため気軽にお使い頂けます。

ヴィンテージウォッチを初めて購入される方はメンテナンス費用も比較的抑えられるため、クォーツ式のものをおすすめします。

こちらの時計はマストタンクとしては非常に珍しい、販売当時の箱と保証カード、冊子類が付属しています。

ケースには再メッキを施しています。

再メッキ後にカルティエにてコンプリートサービスを行っています。(2022年7月)

コンプリートサービス時にガラス風防、文字盤を新品に交換しています。

尾錠はカルティエ純正バックルが付属します。

カルティエによる2年保証が付帯します。

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
