One of Cartier’s most iconic collections, the Santos Chronograph was born out of a legend. The first modern wristwatch was created when Louis Cartier asked his friend, replica Cartier watches Brazilian pilot Alberto Santos Dumont, to create a wristwatch that could be worn on the hand to check the time in flight. With its recognizable design and elegance, the Santos collection became a classic of its generation. Here we will take a look at one of the Santos watches as an example. (Watch Ref: WSSA0017)
This Santos chronograph is equipped with a chronograph function and features chronograph pushers with a distinctive design, a push button at 9 o’clock to start and stop the chronograph, and a push button on the crown to return the watch to zero, giving the watch a more balanced and harmonious overall design.
The watch has a diameter of 43.3 mm and a case made of two different materials: ADLC carbon coated bezel and steel case, ADLC carbon coated bezel and steel case.
The case and lugs are naturally connected, and the elegant lugs are curved to provide an ergonomic setting for a more comfortable fit. The heptagonal crown at 3 o’clock is set with a multi-faceted black synthetic spinel, echoing the square case, while the special chronograph pushers underline the brand’s watchmaking prowess and create a more balanced visual effect.
The dial is partitioned, with a brushed central square area and three function dials adorned with a snailed pattern, creating a striking contrast between the two. The classic Roman numerals are complemented by sword-shaped hands and a date window at 6 o’clock. The classic and elegant design is impressive, while the innovative design adds dynamism to the watch.
