World’s First Pilot’s Watch: Cartier Santos 1904

When it comes to the essential criteria for a pilot’s watch, like functionality and readability, Cartier’s Santos seems an odd fit except in one unassailable category: originality.

A Santos owner is a distinguished client who may well epitomize a certain daring that accompanied Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines. In a time when men risked their lives to soar into the air, the world held its breath and watched. In the midst of all this attention, a novel wristwatch by Cartier appeared, and the world took notice. The watch is a tribute to a fearless age when determination knew no bounds.
