Changing the shape without changing the essence.

Description

Françoise is always amazed to see the variations that Cartier churns around the same design! The House is often in the habit of playing on the shapes, colors or sizes of a model, while keeping its DNA. Here we have a new example. Cartier knew how to keep the geometric aspect and the codes of the Santos, while going from a square shape to a round one.

We find the gold insert nailed to a steel case, which made the success of the Santos in the 1980s. For this rounded model, Cartier plays on symmetry, by distributing the nails slightly unevenly on the insert.

Why did Françoise choose it?

This gold and steel Cartier Santos can be worn every day. A watch that assumes a sporty look, still elegant since it is a Cartier. The steel bracelet and its thin case make it very pleasant to wear. Without a doubt, Françoise loves the Santos, an essential model in the Cartier repertoire. This one takes up the codes with a twist. Round watches at Cartier, especially sports, are not the most common. Françoise also likes to offer watches with slightly larger diameters, here a beautiful 33 mm which gives this Santos a real presence on the wrist.

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!
