Designed by Louis-Francois Cartier alongside his friend, the pilot Alberto Santos Dumont, the Santos was Cartier’s first male wristwatch. Dumont required a working pilot’s watch, with pocket watches proving too cumbersome for his aeronautical pursuits. In 1904, his wish was granted with the emergence of the Cartier Santos. Over a century later, this iconic timepiece remains as popular as ever – bestowing on its owner an unmistakeable sense of prestige.
The Cartier Santos boasts a trademark square bezel and distinctive exposed screws alongside the classic Cartier roman numerals, while increasing demand for versatility in recent years has led to Cartier unveiling a variety of updated Santos models in different styles and colours. Available in an array of male and female designs, the Cartier Santos is an excellent choice for lovers of classic style and functionality.
