Conquer the sky, let your spirit soar, and fight against gravity: the indelible mark of aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont on the new Santos collection by Cartier. These watches elevate the presence, style, and thirst for heights of the men who change the world in the footsteps of Alberto Santos-Dumont, the pioneer of the skies for whom the first modern wristwatch was created by Louis Carter in 1904, so the aviator could tell the time while flying. The contemporary versions reflect the simplicity, practicality, and innovation that were Santos-Dumont’s guiding principles.
The clean design featuring a square case whose screws are intentionally left visible, and use of a high-autonomy quartz movement will carry this watch well into the future.
Classic, thin, and available with an alligator strap, the new Santos-Dumont watch remains
