Cartier Santos is one of the popular collections within the Cartier brand and it’s also one of the Cartier watches which has been in existence for quite some time now, more than 100 years even. The Cartier Santos had its first beginnings in 1904 when Louis Cartier created a watch for his good friend, a Brazilian aviator named Alberto Santos-Dumont. The Cartier Santos was officially named and launched in 1911 with a similar style as the 1904 creation. The Cartier Santos changed in style throughout the years, including the Cartier Santos produced with a gold and steel bracelet in 1978. Today, the Cartier Santos luxury brand watch models are available in various case materials with a wide array of bracelet styles to choose from in order to find the perfect timepiece to suit your accessories collection.

Cartier was founded in 1847 in Paris by the jeweller Louis-François Cartier, who in 1899 handed over to his three sons. They would establish the company internationally, not least by making the Cartier name a favourite among the crowned heads of Europe. Named "King of Jewellers, Jeweller of Kings", the brand was quick to turn its attention to watches. Many have become modern-day icons, such as the Santos (1904), the first wristwatch actually ever created, the Tortue (1912) and the Tank (1919). They were followed by other noteworthy creations, including the Pasha, the Santos 100, the Ballon Bleu and the Calibre. The Cartier family retained ownership of the firm until 1964. It is now part of the Richemont Group.
