At the heart of the past century, the establishment of Cartier watchmaking has undoubtedly rejuvenated most iconic and elegant wristwatches over time. The focus on historical designs with an unceasing pursuit results in evocative pieces reflecting elegance, story-telling and grace.

For those wondering the significance and history of the Santos, this series is the very first wristwatch Louis Cartier and Alberto Santos Dumont, a pioneering pilot who relies on an angular wristwatch to cruise across the sky. Designed as an aviation watch and ventured towards numerous subsidiary collectible references - I still believe the Santos is one of the most important timepieces of our century and changed the perception of dress and sports watches today.

The artistic influence of Cartier is widely endorsed by creative industry - Andy Warhol, Catherine Deneuve, Ricardo Bofill to name a few - much significant contributions to art, design and architecture. The Santos family succeeds its DNA through diverse collectibility across all price points ie. Galbee & Carree 2961, Dumont 7822 extended lugs, Santos 1575 / 1576 Extra Flat which I still advocate as one of the best neo-vintage Cartiers in the wild.

This particular reference infuses the best between both modern and vintage Santos Dumont with a stainless steel case, rose gold bezel and off-set 'Salmon' dial in a guilloche-like swirling finish. The dial hosted rhodium-plated Arabic numerals instead of Roman numerals which enhances its contrast towards the tonality in my view. Upon the case-back is engraved Alberto Santos Dumont's original flying machine N.19 which hosts Calibre. 430MC Manual-Winding Movement. Limited to 500 pieces and offered at a friendly price-point, this is one of the most evocative Santos Dumont in the Maison's contemporary line-up and instantly sold out.

I tend to think this piece appeals to a unisex audience and whether it's yours or hers tonight, the Dumont will be the magical spark between you two amongst the rising stars. The grace, the class and atmosphere is unforgettable on this one, we'll leave it to speak for its own esteem.
