For many years, the Cartier Tortue played second fiddle to its more popular siblings, the Tank and Santos. It occupied a place in between the dependable icons (in the form of the rectangular watches), and the more outlandish and avant-garde designs such as the Crash.
Following the explosion of the Cartier Collection Privée in the last few years, however, the Tortue has quickly become the poster boy for the new neo-vintage movement. Now, it takes its place in the hall of fame as one of the most recognisable Cartier designs currently available.
Cartier comfortably sits at the intersection between fine watchmaking and art, combining years of heritage with eye-catching and unique case designs. From its inception in the turn of the 20th Century, Cartier has earned a well-deserved reputation for being a manufacture that has successfully transformed the humble wristwatch from a soldier's tool into a true object of desire.
