From July, 26th to August, 18th, Cartier will be delighted to welcome you to Center Stage at Zurich airport where our partner Bucherer will be presenting the new Santos de Cartier collection.
Simplicity, practicality, innovation. These were the three main principles guiding Alberto Santos-Dumont, the aviation pioneer who ordered the first modern wristwatch from Louis Cartier in 1904.
"I fly to escape society and think." ALBERTO SANTOS-DUMONT
The Santos de Cartier watch is the timepiece of a man who aimed ever higher, designing more than 22 flying machines and registering many patents. A man who risked his life with every test flight he took, donated part of his prize money to charity, and invented a functional yet elegant wardrobe.
The understated design – with a square dial featuring deliberately visible screws, and an ergonomic bracelet for complete freedom of movement – ensures its timeless appeal.
