The Cartier Tank Louis was introduced in 1918 and is one of the most iconic watch models ever produced, adorning the wrist of many notable people over its lifetime. Overall the Tank is a classic, elegant model that can be worn by both men and women everyday and sustain a lifetime, if not generations to come. It's also a favourite of mine and I wear one everyday myself!

This particular Cartier Paris Tank Louis is a ref. 878087 in 18k solid yellow gold, mid-sized at 20mm by 28mm, and is a rather nice configuration, featuring a manual wind mechanical 78-1 calibre and an attractive guilloché dial, whilst featuring all of the quintessential Tank DNA. Considering that most Cartiers produced in the 1980s and 1990s were quartz, this example is a fine and quality piece, and a nod to the CPCP (Collection Privée) line that would follow later in the 1990s. 

The overall condition of this example is very good. The dial is in excellent condition, the case is very good with light surface scratches commensurate with age. The watch comes on a Cartier red leather strap and gold-plated Cartier pin buckle.
