Cartier Santos Leather strap/bracelet

Created in 1904, the Santos watch is based on the concept of form, a taste for minimalism, the precision of proportions and finally, an eye for detail.

Inventor and pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont wanted a watch that could be wrist-worn for use whilst flying, and Cartier obliged by making the first dedicated wristwatch ever. Alberto’s celebrity status made the men’s wristwatch a fashion icon overnight, and wrote the Cartier Santos into the history books.
