Known as one of the foremost purveyors of high-end jewelry, Cartier has long held a reputation for superb watches and its principal strong suit has been high fashion and style. Among its innovative styles, the Tonneau case has been explored in many ways and versions during its over 110 years of history: the elongated and barrel-like shape of the present Cartier is in yellow gold with sapphire cabochon and has been preserved magically in all these years. The silvered dial is a must for the Cartier relations with painted Roman numerals, inner minutes track, blue steel sward hands and the unmistakable Cartier signature.
