One of the most famous watch designs: The Cartier Santos. A timeless model that everybody knows, and is copied vèry often.

In 1904, Louis Cartier granted the wish of the famous Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos Dumont: to be able to tell time while flying. The birth of one of the first ever wristwatches sealed the bonds of friendship between these two pioneers. The rounded angles of the dial, the seamless curve of the horns, and the exposed screws made for an iconic watch that would inspire countless reinterpretations.

Most people know the scquare model, but did you know that their was also an octagonal and round Vendôme version? Most versions where made in steel with yellow gold, some in steel with white gold, others in made of massif 18k gold.

This is one of my favorites! The Cartier Santos Vendôme Steel with 18k white gold and dark grey dail.
