The Tonneau is thé dandy watch in the collection, may be even more than the curved Tank Cintrée. In ‘Collection Privée Cartier Paris’ were the last versions of the Tonneau, released in 2006. The model was, like previous versions, only available in gold and platinum and the two time zone models also in white gold, and like all Tonneaux, for short period only. The Tonneau is a very exclusive and important watch,  The Tonneau was just like the Tortue, originally designed for men. In these early years most models were and these cases were indeed much smaller, than nowadays.  Despite the fact that the case was small, it still was a mens’ watch. A smaller ladies version was released later. Another difference is the fact that the Tortue has a roomy case that has been used for complications, like a mono poussoir, minute repeater or perpetual calendar movement, while the Tonneau, due to its slim case, always was and still is a Time only dress watch, or a two timezone watch, with two small individual movements.
The problem with the Tonneau as a mens watch appeared in the eighties, when men found the watch too elegant, mainly due to it’s very thin strap, that looked a bit feminine, especially  on the inside of the wrist.
