MODERN FAMILY. From its birth at the turn of the 20th century, Cartier revisits the Santos de Cartier, introducing new innovations, still making it a relevant timepiece
Created back in 1904 for the aviator Santos-Dumont, the Santos de Cartier watch is part of the stylistic heritage of the maison. In keeping with the spirit of its age, the watch has evolved with the passing decades. For 2018, the maison introduces interchangeable straps in the latest version of the Santos de Cartier as the next logical chapter in its history. To this end, Cartier has incorporated the QuickSwitch mechanism and SmartLinks bracelet systems that allow the wearer to easily change out links without a screwdriver. The straps themselves are designed around comfort, ergonomics and flexibility. It’s safe to say that its distinctive aesthetic symbolized the modern era of the Santos.
