Description

The Tonneau is a prime example of Cartier’s historic ability to create elegant, refined timepieces, while remaining faithful to its core design principles. The Tonneau watch was re-introduced by Cartier in 2019, at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), in two differing case-metals: platinum and pink gold, with single and dual-time models available. Each bears its own vintage-inspired dial.

HISTORY OF THE TONNEAU

The Tonneau is Cartier’s second-oldest wristwatch, having been created in 1906 (two years after the first square Santos appeared). With its unmistakable DNA and Cartier’s timeless style, the reference's elongated case and elegant curves, quickly became a classic. Vintage executions of the Tonneau were made in extremely limited numbers, and examples that remain in original condition come up for public sale infrequently, making them as elusive, as they are attractive.

Over the lifetime of the brand, Cartier watches have come to embody a sense of refinement and understatement. As Cartier expert and scholar Harry Fane recounts in his interview with A Collected Man,

"I think that these wristwatches that Cartier made encapsulate everything that Louis Cartier was trying to say. He wanted something beautiful and elegant and those were the only two criteria he had. I think that he succeeded superbly."
THE DESIGN 113 YEARS LATER

Cased in rose gold, the Tonneau is similar in proportion to the Cartier Cintrée, measuring 46.1mm by 26.2mm. Curved and measuring just 8.8mm thick, the Tonneau serves as an elegant dress watch, fitting perfectly beneath the cuff. It hugs the wrist, in a way that is both supremely comfortable, yet distinctively elegant and characterful. The rose gold variant applies a finishing touch, in the form of a sapphire cabochon, set in the beaded crown. This particular watch comes on its original Cartier-signed, semi-matte, brown alligator strap, with matching rose gold tang buckle.

Beneath the curved mineral crystal, the dial is heavily inspired by vintage Cartier, with a lightly-grained, champagne dial, accented by tone-on-tone print on the minute track. The printed Roman numerals complete the dial, adding further tonal highlights. The overall restrained styling, combined with the slightly ornate Roman numerals, creates an elegant balance. Above the dial, the sword-hands are blued steel, adding a nice touch of contrast to the watch.

THE MOVEMENT

On the reverse, beneath a solid, satin-brushed case-back, the manually-wound Calibre 1917 MC is found, which beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour and offers a 38-hour power reserve.

THE SET

The combination of an iconic, classic Cartier design, in the brand's most coveted metal, explains the appeal of this limited edition Tonneau. It is accompanied by its original box and guarantee card.

Viewings can be arranged in Central London by appointment.
