Tortue Small White Gold & Diamond (WA501011)
The Cartier Tortue watch (ref. WA501011) features a mechanical manual winding movement; silvered flinqué dial with sunray effect, as well as black Roman numerals and blued-steel, sword-shaped hands; and 30 x 24mm (small model), 18k white gold case set with round-cut diamonds on an 18k white gold link bracelet.
The Tortue watch, inspired by the distinctive shell of the tortoise, was first created in 1912 and has formed part of the great Cartier tradition of shaped watches ever since. The boldness of the design is accentuated in this light-hearted feminine interpretation. The lines are straighter, the profile slender, the dial larger, and the previously curved case is now formed of smooth refined facets. The legend of Cartier watchmaking lives on in this Tortue watch fitted with a Manufacture mechanical movement with manual winding.
