Cartier was established as a designer and producer of fine jewelry in 1847, but they did not produce their first wristwatch until 1904. Louis Cartier designed a watch for his friend Alberto Santos-Dumont, a Brazilian pilot who was unhappy trying to handle and check his pocket watch while flying. The Cartier Santos is still a mainstay of Cartier watches to this day. Early Cartier models used movements from other Swiss watch companies, including Vacheron Constantin, Audemars Piguet, and LeCoultre. Cartier also worked with Edward Jaeger to manufacture movements for Cartier watches.
The Cartier Santos is immediately recognizable for it’s bold, mechanistic design that features large exposed screwheads on the bezel and bracelet as its distinguishing feature. The Cartier Santos Ronde Octagon is a striking variation of the Santos line, featuring an octagonal case and a round dial. With a self-winding automatic movement and a clean, sophisticated burgundy dial in a steel and gold case, this watch is both sporty and elegant.
