In 1912, Louis Cartier designed the original tortoise-inspired watch, the Tortue. At a time when most watches were round, its accented form and unprecedented design went on to shape a classic of Cartier watchmaking.

This is the highly sought after CPCP (Cartier Paris Collection Privee) Tortue LM (large size) in yellow gold. The time-only Tortue was produced in yellow gold, rose gold, and platinum. The platinum (like all other platinum CPCP's) had the smallest production number followed by the rose gold with yellow gold being by far the most common out of the three. The dial of this watch is wonderfully executed with all the collector favorite CPCP code present including a subtle guilloché pattern dial with a rossete motif in the center, black painted Roman numerals, the chemin-de-fer minute track, and the beautiful flame-blued Breguet hands. The Tortue also has a clear case back which allows you to marvel at the beauty of the hand wound 437MC caliber which was based on a Piaget movement.

Overall, this CPCP yellow gold Tortue is in outstanding condition in near mind condition. The case is in beautiful, unpolished shape and retains its original curves. The dial is also flawless. The watch comes with a brown leather Cartier strap as well as its original gold deployant clasp. The movement was just serviced in January 2023. The watch will come with a 6 month movement warrantee from us. The watch comes as a full set with its CPCP mahogany wood box, red leather booklet, CPCP manual, and guarantee with retailer stamp and dated in 2002.
