The history of the Cartier institution dates back to 1847 when it was founded by Louis Cartier in France. The initial success of the company is attributed to the jewellery pieces made by them. With the advent of the modern wristwatch, a new dimension was added to the company.
Fulfilling the request of a friend, the renowned Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos Dumont, the very first wristwatch was created by Cartier. In order to make flying and keeping track of time convenient, the first watch was presented to Santos, after a few years it took the market by storm. Featuring a geometric shape and exposed screws, the watch soon became an icon in the art of watch making. With a plethora of new designs, the collection still reflects its glorious past yet explicitly adding a touch of modernity.
A faceted crown and a faceted sapphire crystal embellish the Cartier W2020067, lending to its ethereal elegance. Embracing femininity with its beautifully enthralling design, it incorporates a silver flinique dial, Roman numerals and sward shaped hands in blued steel. A double adjustable folded buckle in 18K pink gold gives it a cutting edge design. With a calendar aperture at 12 o’ clock and a power reserve at 6 o’ clock, it incorporates technical precision with elements of ravishing exquisiteness. Featuring a 38x 47.4mm diameter and a 9.3mm thickness, the watch indeed ‘rises to the ranks of a classic that would defy the hands of time.’
An analog dial with a mechanical movement, is the signature style of Cartier watches, and is incorporated in this masterpiece as well. A Swiss made beauty, also water resistant up to 30 m, it is highly durable.
Who knew a simple request by renowned aviator and friend, Alberto Santos Dumont, would bring Louis Cartier to design one of the first ever men’s wrist watches. When Alberto Dumont expressed what a bother it was to glance at a pocket watch while flying, Cartier took it upon him to come up with a solution, and designed a wristwatch unlike any other of its time. From then on, Alberto Santos Dumont wore his watch every time he took flight. He was renowned throughout Europe, and thus his Cartier watch became as famous as him. People began to get more and more curious about what he was wearing on his hand, and Cartier had the answer. This gave birth to the “Santos”, which fast became extremely popular with men all over the globe. Louis Cartier then went on to collaborate with movement maker Edmond Jaeger to mass-produce the Santos, which had the voyager’s name and went on sale officially in 1911, as the Santos de Cartier.
In 1904, Louis Cartier designed the first ever men’s wrist watch with a square bezel, leather strap and a small buckle. At first, Cartier had only used precious metals and leather as the straps for the watches, but in 1978, he delivered a relatively lower-priced steel/gold watch, preceded by an all-steel watch. The plate bezel affixed with tiny screws became a lasting feature of the Santos de Cartier range of watches.The Cartier Santos watches are also water-resistant up to thirty metres.
The Santos de Cartier watch is crafted in steel or gold, also featuring a graceful coupling of the two metals, with or without the embellishment of precious stones. Coming in a metal or leather skin strap, the timepiece rests easy and securely on your wrist. The case has a minimalist aesthetic integrated with rectangular rounded corners, evocative of its proud history, which called for a lithe and functional device. Most watches in this range have clearly readable white dials that have bold black Roman numerals and luminescent black oxidized-steel sword-shaped hands for enhanced visibility in low light conditions. Select models such as a few from the Santos Dumont line feature a stunning hawk motif- vivid in its imagery, rich in its use of precious metals and stones yet subtle enough to conform to the foremost ethos of the collection- practicality.
