Christie's Watches Online: Falling for Time
Online 6 - 20 September 2018

The Santos model was created in 1904 at the request of its name sake, Alberto Santos-Dumont, who was an aviator and wanted a watch he could wear on his wrist while flying instead of a pocket watch. In 1994, for the 90th anniversary of the Santos Dumont watch, Cartier came out with a limited edition Santos in platinum with salmon dial and Breguet style hands. The present example is number 41 of 90. This watch would be excellent on the wrist of a man or a lady.
