Cartier is par excellence the brand that laid the foundations for haute horlogerie. Since its founding in 1847, the brand managed to capture the attention and pleasure of the highest social spheres of the time and since then, its creations are synonymous of elegance and sophistication.
In 1912, pioneering watchmaker Louis Cartier designed the original tortoise-inspired watch, the Tortue. At a time when all the watches were round, its accented form and unprecedented design went on to shape a classic of Cartier watchmaking. In mint condition, this Cartier Tortue in Yellow Gold is presented with its original box and documentation. It is a piece that cannot be missed in your personal collection.
