The tonneau-shaped tortue pattes or turtle on legs wristwatch was originally designed by Louis Cartier in 1912; the shape of the case was made to resemble a turtle, a very popular animal during this era and symbol of good fortune and longevity in many civilizations. Particularly elegant, it became one of Cartier's most prized watches and is today amongst the most emblematic models of the Collection Prive Cartier Paris, available in different versions.
