History
Since 1847 when Louis Cartier established the institution, the brand is reputed of being worthy of royalty. King Edward VII of England referred to Cartier as ‘Jeweller of kings and King of Jewellers.’ Watch making soon followed making the institution stronger than ever before.

The first model of the Santos Dumont watch still stands as an iconic beauty preserved in the Paris Air Museum. A legend was born when the Santos came into being amidst war and destruction. Soon after the invention of the first wristwatch for men, Cartier started designing watches for women, elegantly adorning the wrists of the royal families and celebrities.

Design
The Cartiers Santos Dumont w2009451 features an aesthetic design that conforms to the fearlessness that the timepiece represents along with latent elements of femininity and modernity. The Cartier W2009451 is a classic masterpiece that is created exclusively for women who want to assert their style with an edge. Its 18K white gold case measures 38.5mm x 30.3mm. A crown set with a sapphire adds a royal touch to this mellow piece. Black sward shaped luminescent hands and the Roman numerals as hour markers, make it simple yet stunning. Cartier watches, have a reputation of incorporating fewer embellishments and concentrate more on precision, the watch has a 6 inch black adjustable crocodile strap. The deployment clasp secures the timepiece safely on your wrist.

Features

Furthermore it is water resistant up to 30 m, making it long lasting. Durability and precision being the key tenets of Cartier pieces, this piece exemplifies the perfection that Cartier initially sought to create.

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.
