Santos de Cartier
One of the first wristwatches ever produced, the Santos de Cartier calls back to 1904 when renowned Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos Dumont hoped to tell time while in the air. The Santos is identifiable through its famous characteristics of the rounded corners of the dial, smooth curves of the horns and visible screws. The development of this timepiece fortified the relationship between Cartier and Dumont, two innovators of their time, creating a watch that would become an icon in the watchmaking industry.
New strap system
The new strap on Santos de Cartier watches is designed with modern lifestyles in mind, focusing on innovation and versatility. Coming in a variety of materials and colours such as steel, gold, calfskin or alligator skin, the strap can be catered to any event or daily routine. The straps are easily interchangeable by pressing the Cartier QuickSwitch system (patent pending), which is subtly blended into the structure of the case to retain the sleek look of the timepieces.

Drive de Cartier
From its inception in 1904, the Santos de Cartier has built a reputation for reinventing itself to keep with the spirit of time.
Founded by Louis Cartier in 1847, Cartier is a French jewellery and watchmaking House with a rich history based on pioneering design and passion for excellence. During the late 19th century, when pocket and chatelaine watches were the norm, Louis Cartier envisioned the future of wristwatches.
The original Cartier watches quickly developed into multiple new models, creating iconic names like Tank, Baignoire, Ballon Bleu, Santos and Calibre. These infamous collections all play on a shape, a winding crown, a historic event or the House’s first in-house watch movement.
