The Santos De Cartier Chronograph is a Golden Sight to Behold
SANTOS DE CARTIER CHRONOGRAPH WATCH
Louis Cartier presented his first Santos De Cartier in 1904 to his good friend it was named after, Alberto Santos-Dumont. It lays itself bare with visible screws and a modern square design.
Long after this gifting, Cartier is revisiting this iconic watch with the Santos De Cartier Chronograph Watch (W2SA0008). This current itteration is an extra large model (Case width: 43.3 mm, case thickness: 12.5 mm) with a chronograph mechanical movement with automatic winding, calibre 1904 CH MC. It’s encased in steel with a yellow gold frame. The steel and gold offsets the satin-brushed silver dial, which itself is overlayed by black steel sword-shaped hands with luminescent material.
On its side, the 7-sided crown is set with a faceted blue synthetic spinel and finally the straps come in either a steel bracelet with a “SmartLink” adjustment system or a black rubber strap with steel folding buckle.
