Cartier, founded in Paris in 1847, first ventured into watchmaking at the turn of the 20th century. In 1906, they introduced one of their second-oldest models, the Tonneau, French for barrel or ton. Its design, a harmonious fusion of a round and square-shaped case, was groundbreaking and marked a departure from traditional watch designs of the era. The curvaceous, elongated shape, large Roman numerals, and elegant leather strap made the Tonneau’s design timeless, remaining virtually unchanged since its inception.

From its very beginnings, the Tonneau was reserved for an exclusive segment of Cartier’s clientele in Paris. It was a timepiece ahead of its time, appreciated by only a select few who recognized its extraordinary beauty.

Today, the Tonneau stands as a true classic that reshaped the watch industry, pioneering a new style in watch case designs. It holds a significant place in Cartier’s collection and is cherished by watch connoisseurs worldwide.

The exquisite handwinder we have here dates back to ’99, making it a relatively youthful specimen considering its century-long legacy. Encased in 18k rose gold, housing a caliber 78, its dimensions are 26mm x 39mm, appearing larger than it wears, thanks to its slim, curvaceous shape that gracefully conforms to the wrist. The 18k rose gold bezel adds to its allure. The dial, protected by a sapphire crystal, boasts Cartier’s signature style – white with bold black Roman numerals and striking blue hands. Just below the 12-hour marker, “Paris” is elegantly displayed alongside the brand name “Cartier.” At the 6-hour position, the dial proudly proclaims “Made in France.”
