An extremely rare and well preserved Art Deco vintage wristwatch by Cartier from 1912.

Pioneering designer Louis Cartier created a tortoise-inspired watch, the Tortue, in 1912. At a time when all watches were round, the innovative shape went on to earn the status of a design classic for Cartier.

Platinum Tortue (Tortoise) shaped case set with diamonds.

Silvered dial with black Roman numerals. Black minute chapter. Blued steel breguet hands.

19-Jewel (Rubies) Chronometer movement, adjusted to 8 positions, signed European Watch and Clock Company Inc and Swiss made.

With Cartier Box.

Case, movement and dial signed.

Case Measurements:

Width : 19mm (at widest point).
Length (lug to lug): 26mm

All watches are given a full thorough service. They are stripped down to their individual parts, thoroughly checked for any obvious wear and tear, cleaned, re-oiled, reassembled and regulated. The final result is that the case, dial and movement are in pristine condition.
Pristine, fully serviced, 2 year guarantee and full after sales maintenance service.
