The tortoise-shaped case of the new Cartier watch (51 x 45.6 mm) demonstrates simple lines. It is fashioned in18K pink or white gold. There is also a diamond-decorated version. You will notice the watch has maintained the signature facetted sapphire on the winding crown.
The elaborate several-level dial impresses by its clarity. The finely cut-out, blue lacquered central part of the dial represents a part of the world map. This peculiarity of the model looks like an invitation to travel and makes it particularly attractive for world travelers.
It offers the information for a modern traveler in the simplest way one can expect. The time at the current location is clearly displayed by the two principal hands, while the time at the starting point of the journey is displayed in a semi-circular aperture featured in the lower half of the dial by a day/night hand bearing symbols for the sun and moon.
To lighten the design of the face, Cartier watchmakers decided to make the names of the major cities of the world appear in a special window cut into the side of the case middle.
The new Cartier Tortue Multiple Time Zone watch is teamed with a black alligator strap fitted with a double adjustable folding clasp.
