The legendary Santos with a twist!

Description

The classic model is well known: a square case with integrated bracelet, visible screws to fix the insert and each link, the cabochon. Three elements are enough to immediately recognize the Santos.

This model has nothing in common. Firstly, this is the curved version with its slightly curved case, particularly pleasant on the wrist. It sits on it and follows its shape. Secondly, we find a Santos Lady, the smaller size, which is particularly suitable for female wrists. Third, the dial which makes all the originality of this piece. Indexes with golden Roman numerals which interact with a champagne color whose hues play with the light.

A watch that is perhaps more sporty but certainly very original.

Why did Françoise choose it?

This Cartier Santos is truly perfect for daily wear. Concerning the materials, this is the most common version, where gold mixes with steel. It was the dial that seduced Françoise, already convinced by the “classic” models. An essential model in the Cartier repertoire but which you will not see on every wrist. It is emblematic, both from a historical and stylistic point of view. A pleasant, practical and timeless piece.

In all the Santos that Françoise has had the chance to wear on her wrist, the Lady Galbée wins the comfort competition hands down! Its slightly curved bottom and its small size fit the wrist perfectly. If it wasn't a Cartier, you might end up forgetting you're wearing it!

Finally, this piece is offered full set, with box and papers, as if you were leaving the Cartier boutique.

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!
