The Cartier Tortue product line provides a wide selection of fine men’s and ladies’ watches and is highly distinguished thanks to its unmistakable style. The Tortue – French for turtle – was inspired by the shell of a tortoise and stands contrast to other watch models from Cartier thanks to the creative design of its case. The classic timepiece complements the wrist and adds the finishing touch to any elegant ensemble.
The Tortue was from the beginning a successful ‘time only’ watch in it’s own way, that lived happily along side the Santos Dumont and the more famous Tank. In it’s own way, because it has always been a bit of a watch for connoisseurs. The importance of the Tortue increased when Cartier decided to add complications and released a Minute repeater and a Mono Poussoir, in 1928.
The beautiful thing about the Cartier Tortue is the diversity of the series: for women and men alike, the Tortue is presented in different sizes, colours, and styles. Whether comprised of gold or steel or donned in a completely plain or diamond finish: every Cartier enthusiast can find a Tortue model that will suitably fit their tastes and preferences.
