Dating back to 1904, the Cartier Santos is known as the first wristwatch designed for aviation. Louis Cartier designed the watch for his friend, the world-famous aviator Alberto Santos Dumont. The aim was simple: to make it possible to tell the time when flying. Its highly legible dial has bold Roman numeral hour markers, and softened bezel edges. Its sword-shaped hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova technology for legibility at night.
