Santos De Cartier
The year is 1904 and jeweler-watchmaker Louis Cartier creates one of the first watches on a leather strap so that his friend, the aviator Alberto Santos -Dumont, can read the time while at the commands of his plane.
Such an original creation didn’t go unnoticed , and Cartier was inundated with requests. And began the Santos de Cartier saga, a watch collection in the style of this visionary and elegant character.
1978 saw the launch of the first Santos de Cartier to match the gold with steel. Its screw decor rapidly became a symbol that Cartier would adapt to numerous product lines. Now present on our titanium prescription frames and sunglasses, the screw decor symbolisis an encounter between two moments in time: progress and tradition.
