In 1847, Louis-François Cartier took over the jewellery shop where he had been an apprentice in Paris. The Cartier Jewelry Company was born and continues to offer high-end jewellery and accessories, including watches, in stores worldwide. The first Cartier Tank Watch debuted in 1917 as a tribute to the allied European forces during World War I. The Cartier Manual Tank Watch for women is available at authorised Cartier retailers for around £2,535. Winding a Cartier Manual Tank Watch requires a few steps.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn the small knob on the right-hand side of the watch (the crown) to wind the spring in the watch. Wind the crown until you feel a slight resistance.

  2. 2

    Pull the crown out until you hear a small click. Turn the crown clockwise until the desired time has been reached.

  3. 3

    Push the crown back in one click. The crown will not be pushed fully against the side of the watch.

  4. 4

    Wind the crown several more turns to fully engage the gears.

  5. 5

    Push the crown back against the side of the watch. The watch is now set.
