Created by Louis Cartier in 1906, the Tonneau was Cartier's second wristwatch after the Santos Dumont. It actually has a longer history than the Tank.
As the name Tonneau suggests, its barrel-shaped shape is its biggest feature.
Cartier tonneau watches are slightly slimmer than other tonneau-shaped watches and the watch itself is curved along the arm, making it a very good fit.
Ref.2459D is a very rare piece with dual time display and mechanical movement. This is one from CPCP (Collection Privé Cartier Paris).
CPCP was revealed as a top-of-the-line men's line from 1998 to 2008, and remains a highly popular collection even now that it has been discontinued.
It is characterised by its precious metal case, mechanical movement and CARTIER PARIS on the dial.
The Dual Time, as the name suggests, has two dials with two time zones that can be adjusted using the independent crowns.
You can set the time difference so that each time is displayed separately, so I think it's easier to understand if you think of it as the same as the GMT function.
The case is made of 18K white gold. The bezel has a polished finish, and the sides and caseback have a hairline finish.
The size of 26.5mm in width and 40mm in height may seem large when you just look at the numbers, but it is actually the perfect size as it curves to fit your arm. Please take a look at the photos of the item being worn.
Under the curved sapphire glass, the dial is decorated with the CPCP's signature floral pattern of intricate guilloché engraving and blued-steel Breguet hands.
The CARTIER PARIS notation not only gives the watch a vintage feel, but also indicates that the watch is part of a special collection.
The movement is equipped with hand-wound Cal.8970MC.
The watch comes with a genuine Cartier deployant buckle made of 18k white gold and a brown leather strap.
The length of the belt is approximately 18.5cm around the arm.
The watch has had a complete service at Cartier at the end of September 2022. The case has been polished.

About Complete Service
Complete service, sometime called overhaul is the work of disassembling a mechanical product down to its individual parts, cleaning and reassembling it to bring it closer to its new state of performance.
Roughly speaking, the overhaul procedure is as follows.
1. Separate into case and movement
2. Disassemble the movement
3. Inspection and pre-cleaning of wear condition of each part
4. Wash parts with a special machine
5. Lubrication and assembly
6. Waterproof test
7. Final adjustment and running test.
Some movements are made up of hundreds of parts, but it is a very meticulous process of disassembling them one by one, inspecting them all, cleaning them, and reassembling them.
If you don't overhaul, the oil will deteriorate just like a car, and the risk of wear and damage to parts increases, causing a decrease in accuracy and, in severe cases, not working.
There is also the reason that it will be very expensive to replace parts after they are found to be damaged, so we recommend overhauling once every 2-3 years for economical and long-term use.
Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has rounded corners that were originally sharp, and has many small scratches even though the mirror finish should be beautiful. state.
At Arbitro, some watches are sold with a new finish, based on the idea that you can purchase them in beautiful condition and use them for a long time.
In particular, gold-cased dress watches are finished to bring out the best of the precious metal case.
The watches sold by us that have been given a new finish are shot in very high definition, so you can see that the edges stand out and the light is reflected by the mirror finish.
Also, depending on the case or bracelet, there are cases where multiple finishes such as mirror finish and hairline finish are mixed, but there are not many craftsmen who can distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.
In addition, the “thinness of the case” is also a part that is greatly influenced by the skill of the craftsman.
A watch that has become thinner and has thinner lugs is far from its original design, and the appearance becomes unbalanced.
It is a very precise work that brings the case closer to the original finish by eliminating scratches and dents while reducing the thickness of the case to the utmost limit.
Of course, there are cases where it is better to use the watch as it is, in order to emphasize the history of the watch and its original condition.
We look at each watch and judge whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
