The Santos has come in a variety of different forms since the
original was designed in 1904. It’s been reinvented at least
once a decade on average. We’re not going to go into the
timeline of the watch here, but suffice it to say that it was the
first wristwatch, and it has also had the longest-lasting appeal,
with all the ups and downs, moments of glory and moments
that would be best forgotten that that entails. This is something
that goes beyond simple vintage.
Mechanical movement with automatic winding, calibre 1847 MC.

Steel bracelet with "SmartLink” adjustment system. Second bracelet in calfskin, with steel double adjustable folding buckle.
For the new release this year,
the watch has been updated, but its signature square shape is
much the same. There are still eight screws on the bezel, but
the bezel itself and the case are thinner for a sleeker style that
sits more comfortably on the wrist. Cartier is looking back to
the past to guarantee its future
