The New Santos De Cartier Watch Collection
A Modern-Day Legend
Santos De Cartier – A Modern-Day Legend
The Santos de Cartier watch, created in 1904 for the aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont, is part of the stylistic heritage of the Maison. In keeping with the spirit of its age, the watch has evolved with the passing decades, and the interchangeable straps in the latest version are the next logical chapter in its history.
The design studios have updated the timepiece focusing on comfortable wear with respect for the Santos aesthetic. From the square shape to the eight bezel screws, the integrity of this vehicle for elegance is thus preserved.
The design of the bezel has been updated to favour the synergy between the lines of the case and the straps. These sleeker lines accentuate the stylistic dynamic of the watch. The watch is designed for a perfect fit on the wrist and has been precisely weighted, measured to optimise comfort and ergonomics.
The new Santos de Cartier watch features an innovative strap in keeping with the spirit of our time. Available in steel, gold, calf or alligator skin, all versions are interchangeable thanks to the Cartier QuickSwitch system (patent pending) whose invisible mechanism blends into the structure of the case.
Another cutting-edge feature is the SmartLink self-fitting technology (patent pending) which adjusts the length of the metal bracelet to the nearest link without the use of a tool.
