Cartier has always been known for its unusual shapes when it came to their watch designs. During a time when round watches were the norm...the expected, Cartier had a different vision. One such vision were the Cartier Tortue watches.
The Tortue line was created in 1912 - a wristwatch for women. With flowing, supple curves giving its body a tortoise shape, this watch quickly became a classic for a house known to be a master of shapes. By 1928, this line had been expanded to men as well...as women were not the only ones to appreciate the curves!
Cartier Tortue watches are a study in sensual, elegant design...and they are worn proudly by their owners. With its clean lines and understated appearance, these are watches that will be a perfect accompaniment in all situations. With its eternal style, they will be as relevant many years from now as they are today...as they were in the 1920s.
