The Santos watch was conceived by Louis Cartier in 1904 to help aviators tell time mid-flight. Cartier gave the original Santos-Dumont watch to the famous Brazilian aviator, Santos Dumont, in 1904. Since then, this pioneering wristwatch has become an icon, defined by its geometric dial, harmoniously curved horns and signature exposed screws. The Santos 100 was designed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Santos de Cartier watch collection.
