At the Baselworld 2012, Cartier will be presenting the new Tank Folle hand-wound ladies watch, a reincarnation of the legendary Cartier Crash from the late 1960s.

Clearly influenced by Salvador Dali’s “liquid” clocks, the original watch was an homage to one of Cartier of London senior managers who died in a car crash.
