Cartier Tortue was personally designed by Louis Cartier and developed in 1912. The tortoise-inspired case design stood out from the predominantly round cases of the competition at the time and has become an iconic classic for the brand.

These two very unique looking watches are both limited editions and feature intricately cloisonne enameled dials and cases. Both watches are limited to only 20 pieces produced, which makes them extremely rare. The two different sized watches also feature each a dragon motif, one in white and another one in red. The dragon motif is a typical and important depiction in Asian culture, which often symbolizes power, strength and luck.
