Night time created a sky for Alberto Santos-Dumont to conquer. He envisaged using a floodlight to light his way during his test flights.
Cartier casts light on the night sky with the new Santos de Cartier Skeleton Noctambule.
The bridges are coated with Super-LumiNova® pigments which, while invisible during the daytime, reproduce and radiate the stored light once night falls.
