Pioneering designer Louis Cartier imagined a tortoise-inspired watch, the Tortue, in 1912. At a time when all watches were round, the groundbreaking design went on to earn the status of a classic. Cartier offers both ladies' and men's models in a full range of styles, available in gold, at times set or fully paved with diamonds.
