Curator Pick of the Week: Cartier Tortue 18k Yellow Gold Watch

Naming a watch after the slowest animal in the world? Cartier was not afraid.

In 1912, the watchmaker introduced the Tortue. Translation: Tortoise. This 18k gold Tortue really seems to play off of the creature’s sleek shell. It’s rounded elegance has really endured in the century since it debuted. (Insert your favorite “stands the test of time” cliche here.)

Initially created for women, it would make for a great Mother’s Day present for a mom who keeps everyone on time — stylishly.
