A pioneering design when it was first introduced in 1912, the Tortue de Cartier proudly symbolizes the quintessence of the Cartier Watchmaking style. The creativity of its tortoise-inspired shape meets the modernity of its refined jeweler bracelet and extra-flat case. With an octagonal crown set with a faceted sapphire, silvered guilloché dial with sunray effect, and sword-shaped hands in blued steel, the Tortue encompasses all the codes of a Maison icon. Modernized through the Manufacture 8970 MC and 430 MC calibers movements, it boast an exceptional level of finishes that offer even more elegance to this new modern classic.
