Cartier Santos Automatic Black Dial Men's Watch WSSA0006

There is a shapeliness to the new Santos instance, and the right side in particular looks like undulating waves rendered in steel. The usage of brushed finishes along the top and sides accentuates the softness, even though a slim bevel in the edge adds essential definition. The instance is merely 8.83mm thick, so it is extremely slim and integrates well with the bracelet (more on that in a bit). The largest change to the case, however, is that the bezel. It’s still square, sure, but it’s not a great rounded square shape simply screwed on top of the circumstance. The notion here is that it makes the bracelet or strap feel fuller, and it’s a raging success. To me, it completely changes the look of the watch for the better. My only complaint is that the bezel is brightly polished, making it both a dust and scratch magnet in addition to a nightmare to photograph for Instagram (hey, this really is a 21st-century watch we’re talking about here — I stand with this being a legitimate problem). The dial, on the other hand, is pure classicism. The silvered finish doesn’t have any fancy guilloché happening and the black Roman numerals and railroad minutes monitor are complemented with the blued steel hands you’re used to watching from Cartier. , while the large version has a small window at six o’clock in place of the numeral (less yes!) .

First, the layout. The newest Cartier Santos combines hallmark attributes with new capabilities. The general form and manner of the original are respected using a squared case with round edges, a polished bezel with eight screws, a steel bracelet with 2 screws on each and every connection, a white dial with Roman numerals and classic Cartier blued hands. However, when you examine this 2018 Cartier Santos in detail, then you may spot the changes.First, the case (measuring 39.8mm x 47.5mm on this massive version) has been staged, using more curves. For example, on all sides of the bezel, it feels like the Santos currently includes two brancards. This bezel currently follows the traces of the case, however it sticks into the polished finish to contrast with the remainder of the watch and still features eight screws. The case itself is also less aggressive than previously, with more curved lines and the existence of some large, polished chamfer on both medial side. This gives the watch a much more modern and luxury feel.Overall, the new Santos is very pleasant on the wrist and is 9.08mm thick — not just an ultra-thin watch, yet good enough to fit under a cuff. The situation is relatively big but the instance back is slightly curved and the lugs are brief, providing fantastic relaxation. Also bear in mind that a moderate size exists, with a 35.1mm x 41.9millimeter case.Other hallmark features of the Santos are also present. The bracelet is also in the vein of former versions, with its brushed finish and the existence of screws on each hyperlink. Some novelties — very excellent ones — have been inserted, but we will return to this stage in a few lines.

Imagine you order this 2018 Cartier Santos on Cartier’s site, you receive it a few days after, start the box and then… No need to visit the closest Cartier boutique or a watchmaker anymore to have the bracelet fitted to your wrist. Cartier simply solved this issue using the SmartLinks.Overall, if in terms of design, quality, and characteristics, this new 2018 Cartier Santos is a significant success. It looks great, feels great and comes with modern notions, like the interchangeable strap/bracelet along with the rapid adjustment system for the steel bracelet. The cost is every bit as interesting, at EUR 6,600 with this large version in steel (prices start at EUR 6,000 for the medium size in steel). Offered in stores in April 2018. The word “iconic” could be the most overused adjective in watches. And following closely behind it in the hackneyed section is the narrative that starts something like, “Iconic is an overused word, but so called’s siphoned such-and-such is an actual icon that stands to naysayers and deserves the name.” I have definitely written that before (sorry), but I’m going to spare you the tedium today. The Cartier Santos is 1 hell of a watch and its layout integrity, build quality, and thoughtfulness speak for themselves. No “iconic” required.When I first saw that Cartier would be relaunching the Santos collection at SIHH 2018, I’ll admit I was not out-of-my-mind excited. The Santos always looked like a nice watch to me, but maybe not a watch value a raised heartbeat. It’s now something genuinely lust-worthy and that I had to spend a while with one of these watches ASAP. Fortunately the kind people at Cartier North America decided to oblige my appeal, and I managed to wear a Santos around New York City for a week ahead of its launch in San Francisco earlier this season.

As most of you are probably aware, the Santos is generally known as the first watch made for the wrist from the beginning. In the late nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, individuals were devoting pocket watches for their wrists or fitting older movements into altered cases with straps, but the Santos was, from thought to first implementation, a wristwatch.In 1904, Louis Cartier created a special watch for his friend Alberto Santos-Dumont, a Brazilian aviator who had a timekeeper he could check without taking his hands off the controls of his ancient aircraft (Santos-Dumont flew lighter-than-air ships broadly before entering airplanes, in 1906). Cartier obliged, making Santos-Dumont a tiny gold watch with exposed screws along with a square profile. It is not precisely what you think of when you hear “pilot’s view,” but it is as real-deal since it gets at the history of flight. A couple of decades after, around 1911, Cartier put the aptly-named Santos in to manufacturing, selling a refined version of the square watch during its flagship boutique in Paris. Remember, this is still half a decade before the Tank was devised, so lest there be some arguments about which influenced which, know that the Santos had the lead by a long shot. In case you’re wondering, those early Santos models were produced in partnership with Le Coultre, that managed to create the small hand-wound moves needed.Over the ensuing decades, Cartier produced dozens, or even countless variants on the subject. The defining characteristics of the watch have consistently been the square dial with Roman numerals, the square case, and also the screws in the bezel. Other traits like the crown guards and the bracelet came much later, but it’s hard to imagine the Santos with them.
