Since 1847, the French jewelery house Cartier had been synonymous with class and refinement. Garnering global accolades not only from societys elite but more importantly from members of the Royal Court, it has enjoyed tremendous success for over 165 years. In 1906, they launched the iconic Cartier Tonneau collection. It is a vision of pure sophistication in a tonneau shaped case crafted from platinum or 18k gold framed with a diamond studded bezel. Available in small and large sizes, the face is a classic Cartier with its highly legible black Roman numerals and sword shaped blued steel hands. Beneath a scratch resistant sapphire crystal, an automatic or Quartz movement breathes life to the Cartier Tonneaus hours and minutes or dual time functions. A perfect mix of beauty and strength, the Cartier Tonneau can be submerged safely up to the depths of 30m.
