According to Cartier, it is the portrait of a modern man and the product of experimentation by two visionaries and friends, Louis Cartier and Alberto Santos-Dumont.
Here we have a Santos de Cartier Galbee. The first purpose-designed, modern wrist watch that was created after pioneer of aviation Alberto Santos-Dumont complained about his difficulty checking the time on his pocket watch while flying.
The Santos line now has become one of the most popular collections along with its brother Tank. The watch stays true to its original shape but has been updated to focus on comfort and proportions. Santos de Cartier is designed for a perfect fit on the wrist of a bold and fearless man.
