History
Cartier was founded in 1847 by Louis Francoise Cartier. A favourite among the crowned heads, it stood as a resplendent institution that catered to the royal. Amidst war and destruction, Cartier granting the wish of his friend Santos Dumont, introduced the timepiece that had a leather band and a small buckle to be worn on the wrist, in order to be able to tell time while flying.

In 1906, the Santos Dumont succeeded in making a world record recognized by the Aero-Club De France by flying 220 metres in less than 22 seconds. It took until 1911 to be out in the market, after which, the collection took the market by storm. A ubiquitous icon, the Santos Dumont Cartier was commemorated by watch designers from other nations. The original Santos Dumont is now in display at the Paris Air Museum.

Design
An addition to the outstanding Cartier Santos Dumont collection is the Cartier W2007051. It consists of an 18K white gold case. Featuring a silver dial with black hands and Roman numeral as hour markers, it stands prominent as a design that preserves the initial elegance. A tribute to the fearless men all over the world, the Swiss made timepiece consists of a scratch resistant sapphire crystal.

With minimum embellishments, and a simple but classic design, it contains black toned hands and minute markers around the outer ring. The case measures 35mm x 29mm diameter. Using Roman numerals and boasting of skillful cutting, it pays a tribute to fearless men all over the world.

Features
Meticulous in all aspects, the watch houses a quartz movement. It consists of a deployment clasp and incorporates a manual winding movement. Furthermore, it is water resistant up to 30 m, making it suitable for daily activities, yet offering a timelessly elegant appearance.

History

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.


Features
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.


Design
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.
