THE SANTOS DE CARTIER STORY
It’s always big news when Cartier reveals a new watch. Most charming about the refreshed version of the Santos de Cartier is the story behind it, though. When Louis Cartier’s aviator friend, Alberto Santos-Dumont, complained that he struggled to check the time while he was flying, his friend promptly designed him a wrist watch – the first purpose designed modern wrist watch, in fact.
The new Santos de Cartier has a seamless design and has lost none of the elegance of the original look. It’s those signature screws that have become so much part of the Cartier signature and inspired two of the most beautiful jewellery collections: the Love bracelets and Just un Clou.
