Cartier Santos Watch
The Cartier Santos Watch has an interesting story behind it.
At the turn of the 20th century, the famous pilot, Alberto Santos-Dumont required a watch that would would be easy-to-use while he was flying his aircraft. Don’t forget that pocket watches where in style at the time and would be very cumbersome to use while trying fly an aircraft of that period which required the pilot to use both hands.
So, in 1904, Louis Cartier, a friend of Alberto’s created a watch that he could attached to his wrist with a leather band.
Cartier sent the Santos Watch into production and made it readily available to the public a few years later on.
Over a hundred years later, the Cartier de Santos continues to be as one of one of the most preferred Cartier watch for both men and women.
The rounded square case has a brushed or Gold finish. The layout of the square dial with rounded sides is immediately recognisable. An elegant style with stylised Roman characters in black. An internal phase ring for the mins. And also, certainly, sword-shaped blued steel hands. A day window appears at 6 o’clock. Mounting the dial is the famous square bezel plate, kept in place by 8 screws.
Cartier Santos Moon Phase
This luxury watch comes in stainless-steel and pink gold it’s an elegant watch, with exquisite attention to detail that you would expect from Cartier.
What makes this luxury watch even more amazing is that it accounts for the cycles of the moon and the moon phases only need to be adjusted for one day every 125 years.
