The Cartier Santos
The Cartier Santos is the world’s first ever pilot’s watch, developed for Brazilian pilot Mr. Santos. These watches feature a square case made of different materials, with different sizes available like the Santos 100 or the Santos Dumont. All about the quare icon from Cartier: the Santos.
Louis Cartier designed the first ever Cartier Santos back in 1904 at the request of Brazilian pilot Alberto Santos-Dumont. The square case helped set it apart from that era’s conventional round pocket watches with integrated lugs. Since the original Cartier Santos dates back from 1904, there is still a resemblance in the new Cartier Santos-Dumont. This piece has the roots of the original, but are a bit more sporty thanks to the crown guards and softer lines.
The re-creation of the original Cartier Santos from 1904 is the modern piece called the Cartier Santos-Dumont. With the original square case, prominent bezel with 8 exposed screws it looks like the original. There are some options for this model, with a quartz-powered movement in the women’s and unisex models,
but since 2020 there is an automatic caliber in the Santos-Dumont XL. This watch is available in stainless-steel, gold, and two-tone and priced between €5.000 and €12.000. The white gold version with diamonds is the most expensive at €50.000 or more.
