Cartierantos has a 100-year old tradition and was one of the first aviator' s clocks ever..... Luxurious gold designs with diamond are particularly precious and costly timekeepers. He had shown his reluctance to use handwatches in flight because they were hard or even hard to see. That is why Cartier designed the first model of a new clock, the Santo, one of the most famous clocks of the city.
Now the Cartier santos is available in many different versions. In 1978, Cartier launched the Santos Sports, a self-winding high-grade surgical grade self-winding case, high-grade surgical grade leather strap, gold steady rest and uncovered screw on steady rest and wristband. One of the most luxurious timepieces of its age.
In fact, the Paris Aerospace and Aviation Centre, the Paris Museums de l'Air et de l'Espace, is showing the clock as part of an exhibition. You' re thinking about making the Cartier santos your new clock. It has a 100-year long tradition and is one of the first pilot's clocks in the time.

It is available in fashionable skeletal face and black-coated titan case styles. Edinburgh Santos-Dumont skeletal clock is made of dark ADLC-coated titan.
Titans benefits are obvious: it is heavier than high-grade steal and just as sturdy. That means you can take off your clock on Fridays and reset it on Mondays, yet it still works well. An 18 carat gold-plated buckle in all-igator skin rounds off the look.
