Cartier Tortue Perpetual Calendar Watch

Classic elegance meets modern style in this gorgeous Cartier Tortue Perpetual Calendar Watch W1580004, and is the ideal choice for any woman looking for the height of functionality and fashion.

Cartier has long been a name that is associated with luxury and sophistication.  Women who pride themselves on staying at the forefront of the latest fashions know that Cartier is a name that never goes out of style.  Your purchase of this gorgeous watch is an investment that will last far longer than any fad.

The amount of detail and attention put in to each Cartier Tortue Perpetual Calendar Watch W1580004 makes this watch both obvious and subtle in its beauty and value.  Made of 18 karat white gold, this classic time piece has a sleek grace to it that allows this watch to be paired with any ensemble.  The window is made of sapphire crystal, allowing a glare-proofed view to the amazing dial which itself is a window in to the gears at the heart of the watch.  The smallest details are attended to, from the apple-shaped blued-steel hour hands to the retrograde hand that indicates the day of the month.  A separate window shows the months of the year as well as leap years, completing the perpetual calendar effect of this watch.  Having all of those time and date keeping devices is sure to make your professional and personal life that much easier to keep track of.

This particular design does not make for a watch for any woman, it must be said.  This watch does not boast a fully rounded face, but is squared at the top and bottom and rounded at the sides.  Such a shape lends to a bulkier look than some women appreciate in their time-keeping accessories.  Also, the price of this watch speaks to its inaccessibility for many women.  The $66,000 price tag certainly attests to the impeccable level of quality and sophistication in this watch, but it also puts the total package out of range for a great deal of women.

Considering that the Cartier Tortue Perpetual Calendar Watch W1580004 is made of solid 18 karat white gold and boasts such exquisite details as a window to the inner gears and blued-steel hour hands, this watch is most assuredly worth the price.  However, for individuals who are merely looking for the appearance, and are less concerned with genuineness of each feature, a much less expensive similar watch would be a better choice.
