Kanye West – Cartier Tank “Crash” Paris

Kanye West CartierThe 43 year old American rapper and record producer Kanye West, who is one of the most influential musicians in the 21st-century of hip hop and popular music, wears a 28mm Cartier Tank “Crash” Paris in 18k yellow gold.

The story goes (probably a myth though) that in 1967, Jean-Jacques Cartier, then the head of Cartier London, got inspiration for the Crash from a scorching car wreck and found that the watch laying in the vehicle had changed shape, oozing out in different directions from the heat of the blaze.

The timepiece is limited to 400 pieces worldwide, and has a market price of $80,000.00 USD.
