Design
The Cartier Tortue watch, XL, comes affixed with a beaded crown set with a faceted sapphire cabochon on the case side. A classic silver flinque dial is equipped with Roman numerals for hour markers except for the 12 o’ clock numeral, and it has apple shaped hands crafted from blued steel that are characteristic to most Cartier watches. The straps are famously made from brown semi-matte alligator-skin strap with double adjustable 18 carat pink gold folding buckle with deployant clasp. A sapphire crystal dome encases the watch face that, due to its dimensions, is made for the larger than life appearance.

Interesting Facts
Cartier is the one of the founding members of the Fondation de Haute-Horlogerie in 2005 in Geneva. The foundation plays a triple mission statement: to share the cultures of Fine Watchmaking with watch enthusiasts all over the world; to train professionals in the field, and to assume the responsibility of being the Think Tank of the Fine Watchmaking industry. 

History
The Tortue collection was officially launched in 1912. The collection with its tortoise inspired case became a gamechanger in terms of design among its typically round-shaped contemporaries.


Design
This unique collection showcases edgy designs yet retains all the signature qualities of a Cartier. The characteristic feature of this collection is the tonneau-shaped case available in pink or white gold, which drew its inspiration from a tortoise shell. The strap meant to supplement the quiet sophistication of the case, is offered in textile or leather.


Features
The dynamic Tortue collection stands out for the myriad functions that it avails for its user. Select models feature a perpetual calendar with an easy-to-read display. The days of the week are indicated with a charming retrograde hand. A multiple time zone indicator is also available in a few of these luxury watches with an option to change the time zone as and when necessity arises; thus making it the ideal collection for a globe trotter. Some pieces also come with a 24-hour time indicator with adjustment for summers and winters.  You can choose from automatic and manual watch movements for precise timekeeping.
