Michelle Obama's Cartier Tank Francaise Watch

The first African-American First Lady of the United States chose a steel Cartier wristwatch

Michelle Obama

Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama was born in January 17, 1964. Michelle is wife of the forty-fourth President of the United States, Barack Obama, and she is also the first African-American First Lady of the United States.

Michelle Robinson was born and grew up on the South Side of Chicago. She graduated from Princeton University and Harvard Law School. After completing her formal education, she returned to Chicago and accepted a position with the law firm Sidley Austin, where she met her future husband. Subsequently, she worked as part of the staff of Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley, and for the University of Chicago Medical Center. Throughout 2007 and 2008, she helped campaign for her husband"s presidential bid and delivered a keynote address at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. She is the mother of two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and is the sister of Craig Robinson, men"s basketball coach at Oregon State University.

Cartier Tank Francaise

Michelle Obama chose her steel Cartier Tank Francaise. A very popular Cartier Tank watch tasteful and also luxurious. It comes in both male and female models with various levels of gilding.

The Cartier Tank Francaise watch, introduced in 1917 during the First World War, was Cartier"s most famous collection. Louis Cartier was inspired by the tough new war-machine, which was introduced to the fighting in Europe, and designed a rugged yet beautiful watch that became a classic. The Cartier Tank watch is manufactured in stainless steel, all types of gold or combined, and is available in three sizes: Cartier lady watches, with a 25mm x 20mm case; mid-size with a 31mm x 25mm case; and Cartier man watches with a 35mm x 29mm case. The case is rectangular, may be decorated with diamonds and has a cabochon crown; the dial is very easy-to-read and has bold roman numerals; the bracelet has rectangular links combined in a particular pattern-design that is similar to the tank"s track. Though the Cartier Tank watch is a classic formal watch, it is very reliable, and is also water-resistant.

Frank Sinatra's Gold Pasha de Cartier

Watch Gifted To Sammy Davis Jr.





Sinatra was born in Hoboken, New Jersey, the only child of Italian immigrants Natalie Della (née Garaventa) and Anthony Martin Sinatra. He left high school without graduating, having attended only 47 days before being expelled due to his rowdy conduct. His mother, known as Dolly, was influential in the neighborhood and in local Democratic Party circles, but also ran an illegal abortion business from her home; she was arrested several times and convicted twice for this offense. Frank, himself, was arrested for carrying on with a married woman, an illegal offense at the time. Frank's father Tony served with the Hoboken Fire Department. During the tough years of the 1930s, when the Great Depression hit North America very hard, Dolly nevertheless provided ready pocket money to her son Frank, the family's only child, for outings with friends and fancy clothes. Frank then worked for some time as a delivery boy at the Jersey Observer newspaper, and as a riveter at the Tietjan and Lang shipyard. It was in the early 1930s that Sinatra began singing in public





Sinatra had three children; Nancy, Frank Jr. and Tina by his first wife Nancy Barbato (married 1939-1951). He was married three more times, to the actresses Ava Gardner (married 1951-1957) and Mia Farrow (married 1966-1968) and finally to Barbara Marx (married 1976), to whom he was still married at his death.




Throughout his life, Sinatra had mood swings and bouts of depression, symptoms of bipolar disorder, formerly known as manic depression. He himself acknowledged this fact, telling an interviewer in the 1950s: "Being an 18-karat manic-depressive, and having lived a life of violent emotional contradictions, I have an over-acute capacity for sadness as well as emotion." In her memoirs My Father's Daughter, his daughter Tina wrote about the "eighteen-karat" remark: "As flippant as Dad could be about his mental state, I believe that a Zoloft a day might have kept his demons away. But that kind of medicine was decades off."




Included in one of Antiquorum’s watch auctions, the Cartier Pasha watch model that was a gift from Frank Sinatra to other fellow Rat Packer Sammy Davis Jr. Still bearing the engraving by Sinatra that reads, "Sammy, I Luv Ya, F.A.S." A highly collectible item for Cartier fans: 18k gold Pasha watch printed with its manufacture date of 1987. It features a quartz movement. The watch complications include the time, date with day, moon phase and second time zone. The watch is estimated $10,000 - $20,000.
