Talking of which, the Santos bracelet might be as identifiable as the watch itself. In 1978, Cartier established that which we could consider as the first modern Santos. This watch was a two-tone steel and yellow gold version, with a polished yellow gold bezel and a new bracelet that echoed the screw motif of this bezel, just with yellow gold screws punctuating the metal bracelet links. At the moment, this was among the more affordable watches from Cartier and it’s difficult to envision the louche 1980s aesthetic of broad-shouldered pinstripe suits, pastel foulard neckties, and Gucci loafers with no Santos there to complete the look.Most lately, there was the Santos 100 collection. For many lovers of the old Santos, the Santos 100 spoke just a little too loudly, despite trying to say exactly the very same things as its predecessors. The Santos 100 remained the Santos in the Cartier collection for more than a decade — before now.As you can see, the Santos has a fairly robust history and relatively fixed design codes. Reinventing something such as this and balancing the admiration for its past, and the desire to make it feel refreshing, is demanding stuff indeed. However, Cartier really swung for the fences in a means that may create Hank Aaron blush. They were not scared to throw things out, bring new ideas to the table, and make a Santos that feels right for now.
