A real iconic Cartier model, the present lot is an elegant lady’s wristwatch based on the first Tortue model made by the French jeweler and watchmaker Cartier, first launched in the first decade of 20th century. Equipped with a quartz mechanism the case is obviously smaller than the classic standards with its 27 mm wide: realized in 18k yellow gold it has been embellished with a very elegant diamond-set bezel and cabochon. The yellow-gold bracelet is very well preserved and presents a beautiful braided texture. The white dial features the classical Roman numerals typical of Cartier, a closed minutes/seconds track and the blue steel hands. Simple and elegant, this wristwatch is the perfect accessory for every woman.
