It is an eventful August for Italian politics. In a few weeks we have witnessed the end of a government and the birth of a new executive at the helm of which the lawyer and professor, Giuseppe Conte, seems to be reconfirmed.

Fresh from the assignment received a few hours ago from President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella to form the new government, the premier is undoubtedly the protagonist of the national political landscape and constantly exposed to the spotlight.

In between rounds of consultations, our keen eye couldn't help but notice a new watch on the prime minister's wrist. Just a year ago we spotted him with an elegant IWC Portofino in steel, while in these days to make his way from the cuff of Giuseppe Conte's “jeweled” shirt is a Cartier Tank Americaine XL in yellow gold.

Il Cartier Tank Americaine Reference 1740 is equipped with automatic movement Caliber120, octagonal crown with faceted sapphire and typical silver flinqué dial with Roman numerals and date window at 6 o'clock. The 18kt gold case measures 27 × 45 mm.
