One of my favorite Cartier: The Cartier Tortue Monopusher Chronograph, white gold.

Cool, elegant, original. A pure marvel. 

I remember having seen it at the Cartier Boutique a bit less than 20 years ago, I was in awe. Each ( rare ) time I can see one, it makes the same feeling to me.

I like tortues!

I like Tortue cases. I just wished Cartier didn't have a drilled lug hole on the side of the case. I really don't like seeing those holes from the side of the case.

agree tortue is so beautiful

Ah, where are the times that this watch was almost given away second hand

I really like this iteration. Dirk

That's an incredible movement :O I can understand that the C's engraving is not of your liking but covering it up for that? haha I'm shivering :P

I agree that the movement decoration is... unfortunate. But the architecture is so fascinating I'm glad they didn't cover it up.

I loved this watch

 By: blau : March 3rd, 2023-12:34
Possibly the most unambiguously gorgeous watch I've ever owned. (I know we aren't suppose to discuss this sort of thing, but I *also* made a bunch of money by owning it! Bought it 'before it was cool', sold it after.)

What a beautiful and romantic case design!

Yes, a bygone era.

Incredible watch *_*

 By: samuel.chassot : March 3rd, 2023-14:01
I have the yellow gold version, simply love it! The design is so refined, with such a movement.

There you go :)

So deliciously retro.

What a dream!

This timepiece is top tier Cartier, stylish and refined

What I think, too.

 By: amanico : March 4th, 2023-07:17

I generally prefer if the brand name sits at the top of the dial.

In this case though, it helps to balance out the uber 12. Definitely a grail Cartier. Any idea if they got so many fancy minds working on this movement why it was a round movement in a non round watch?

Sooner or later the Tirtue will celebrate a comeback! 🤞

I do hope so!

A small masterpiece by THA

I almost bought one for 11K euro back when no one cared but the deal unfortunately fell. Then I never got around to pursuing an other. Kicking myself now.
