Heritage
Cartier is most commonly recognized as the ‘pioneer in modern watch making’. Since the 19th century, this Swiss watch manufacturing giant has been introducing a large variety of forms and styles ranging right from jewellery watches dating back to 1814 as well as pocket watches, and later luxury wrist watches with unique cuts and movements. Louis Cartier saw the wrist watch as the future of the industry. Cartier introduced the Tortue watch with its classic tortoise-inspired shape in the year 1912. At a time when all watches were categorically round, Cartier decided to don a new appearance altogether with its characteristic shape. This groundbreaking design went on to become a classic. In this Cartier watch, the boldness of the design is accentuated in the light-hearted feminine interpretation.

Design
The Cartier Tortue watch is a small model inspired by the distinctive shell of the tortoise. It pays tribute to the Cartier tradition of shaped watches. The lines are straighter, the profile slender and the case is formed of smooth refined facets. It contains of an octagonal crown set with a faceted sapphire on the case. A silvered guilloche dial is additionally incorporated with the sunray effect for an ethereal appearance. Black Roman numerals embroider the watch face, while the hands are sword shaped and crafted from blued steel. The straps are made from brown alligator skin and contain an ardillon buckle in 18 carat pink gold.

Features
 The Cartier Tortue watch W1556360 features a mechanical manual winding movement with calibre 8970 MC. It is encased in an 18 carat rose gold case of 30 mm diameter, 24 mm width and 7.3 mm thickness, a watch of dainty proportions for the petite hand. The time piece is water resistant to a depth of 30 meters or 3 bar.

 

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.
