The Santos Galbée: small but no less legendary! 

Description

A square case with an integrated bracelet, visible screws on the insert and on each link, a cabochon: these 3 elements are enough to immediately recognize the Santos!

In its Galbée version, its case is slightly curved, which makes it particularly confortable on the wrist.

If you think this watch is only sporty with its integrated steel bracelet, you may rethink your opinion. Its small size and above all the traditional white Cartier dial with Roman numerals make it a watch that remains elegant!

How to wear it

This Cartier Santos is truly perfect for daily wear. If the most famous version of the Santos is in gold and steel, models only in steel like this one are more discreet. Its steel bracelet makes it particularly confortable in summer, when leather straps become uncomfortable on the wrist. Have no fear, this watch will go with everything, and will stay discreet with a fancy outfit if necessary.

Why did Françoise choose it ?

Because it is an essential model in the Cartier repertoire. It is emblematic, both historically and stylistically. A pleasant and practical piece, timeless and discreet. All the more discreet in this all-steel version, with a classic Cartier dial.

In all the Santos that Françoise has had the chance to put on her wrist, the Galbée wins the comfort competition hands down! Its slightly curved caseback and its small size hug the wrist perfectly.

History

Like the Tank, the Santos is one of Cartier's legendary models. It was designed in 1904 by Louis Cartier for his aviator friend Alberto Santos-Dumont. A pioneering watch, not only for aviation but also in the history of watchmaking: it is the first men's wristwatch. In the 1980s, the range split between the Santos Dumont, which remained faithful to the original design, and the Santos, which gained in modernity thanks to its integrated bracelet. Even today, the Cartier Santos is available in different versions, and continues to enjoy undeniable success!
