Tortue Minute Repeater W1538351

  • The Collection Privée Cartier Paris Tortue Minute Repeater is the most important modern complicated Cartier watch created. Which is not to say that it is the most technically complex; there are many watches created by Cartier in recent years such as the Rotonde de Cartier Minute Repeater Flying Tourbillon that are far more complicated. But the Tortue Minute Repeater represents the best use of complicated movements at Cartier together with the design brilliance and extraordinary elegance of the maison’s shaped designs. 
    The Tortue repeater was made in yellow gold and white gold in 25 examples each, and was the very first time Cartier had created a striking watch in series. It was based on a watch in Cartier’s collection that dates to 1928.
    Through Revolution’s partnership with Watchfinder, we are pleased to offer a rare example of this watch for sale now. This timepiece has been immaculately kept over the years and is in incredible unpolished original condition with little signs of wear. The dial of the watch is wonderfully executed with all the classic Cartier codes, including the Roman numerals, the chemin- de-fer minute track, and the magnificent flame-blued Breguet or apple-shaped hands. The minute repeater is playing perfectly; the tone is great and regulation of the strikes is perfect. The Tortue case (35.5mm in width and 43mm in length) features a movement by Renaud & Papi. Very importantly, this yellow gold watch which is one of only 25 examples ever made comes as a full set with all original boxes and papers. Even better, it comes with Watchfinder’s unmatched two-year warranty.
