No other complicated movement in the Collection Privée is as celebrated as the monopusher chronograph, the caliber 045MC, most famously (but not exclusively) found in the Tortue Monopusher. As with all things watches, provenance matters. The caliber was developed by Techniques Horlogères Appliquées (THA), the joint watchmaking effort of F.P. Journe and Denis Flageollet (and soon after joined by Vianney Halter). In addition to this royal provenance, the caliber 045MC is technically notable for featuring a special clutch system designed to remove the jump that often occurs when engaging a chronograph with a lateral clutch system.

In an interview with Phillips, Denis Flageollet said that “at the time the heads of product [at Cartier] did not have extensive knowledge of their heritage. We gave them the idea to remake the chrono-monopoussoir Tortue.” It is another illustrative anecdote showing how the CPCP helped Cartier rediscover its own heritage.

The watch comes with the Cartier white gold deployant clasp and generic leather strap, which is in very good condition. Watch appears to be unpolished with light scratches throughout. Comes with box and original guarantee booklet signed by the retailer but undated.

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.
