Cartier presents an extra-large-sized Santos-Dumont watch celebrating masculine elegance in 30 numbered pieces, engraved with the design of “La Demoiselle”, the most elegant of Santos’ flying machines.
This platinum watch with ruby cabochon was created in homage to Alberto Santos-Dumont, the pioneering dandy whose silhouette is inseparable from the Panama hat he was never seen without.
Cartier pays tribute to this stylish accessory by using a made-to-measure Panama-weave strap. On the dial, the central square also evokes the woven design. The watch also comes with an additional brown alligator leather strap.
As a detail for connoisseurs, the “Cartier” signature traditionally slipped into one of the branches of the VII is replaced by a “Santos”. Created in 1908, “La Demoiselle” is Alberto Santos-Dumont’s most accomplished flying machine, and one of the first aircraft to be mass produced.
This limited series watch is presented exclusively in a lacquered wooden box with a set of accessories.
