Cartier has launched an update of its Tank watch nearly once a decade since 1917. The latest version, the Tank Anglaise, debuted in late June, and to celebrate, the jeweler commissioned a window installation detailing the watch's history. That Statue of Liberty? It commemorates the Tank Américaine from 1989. The Eiffel Tower? That would be for the Tank Française from 1996, of course. Check out the windows in person at the Fifth Avenue store, or take a look at the slideshow above.
