Introduction

Debuting at SIHH 2018 as a fresh and modern take on one of Cartier's many iconic models, the Santos, the Santos De Cartier is an exciting timepiece that has recently undergone a well-deserved explosion in popularity. Tastefully revamping the Santos' design language to pay homage to the iconic history of the collection to which it belongs, the Santos De Cartier has played an important role in popularising Cartier’s modern creations in recent years, while also bringing one of its most important models to the forefront of the horology. With a large array of variants, the Santos de Cartier speaks to the design strengths of Cartier with its variety of sizes, colors, materials, and more, all aiding in its growing popularity. Offered here, we have the ref. WSSA0029 - a mid-sized stainless steel variant that boasts a 35.1mm square-shaped case, a signature Cartier dial design with black Roman numerals, and blued steel hands atop a white backdrop and a wonderful automatic cal. 1847 MC movement. Of course, as a result of this movement the ref. WSSA0029 measures in at a rather thin 8.83mm tall and thus references Cartier’s past as a creator of all things elegant with regards to their other watch collections and jewelry. With its polished screw-set bezel and interesting screw-set bracelet, the Santos de Cartier is a jewel-like timepiece that sparkles in the light that celebrates Cartier watchmaking heritage in perhaps the best way possible.

THE DIAL

Perhaps one of the most recognizable dials in all of watchmaking, this Santos de Cartier features Cartier's signature dial design with a white backdrop boasting black Roman numerals, a railroad minute track, and blued steel hands.

THE CONSTRUCTION

Thanks to its 35.1mm diameter, the ref. WSSA0029 is the perfect size given that its square shape and integrated bracelet allow its proportions to wear larger on the wrist than one might expect at first glance.

Our Perspective

A wonderfully designed timepiece that blends tradition with a forward-looking ethos, the Santos de Cartier successfully celebrates Cartier's heritage while also enabling them to remain relevant and up to date on current market trends. We especially love the quick release bracelet on these newer Cartiers that make the strap to bracelet switch a breeze.
