Cartier used the first Santos-Dumont Replica watch in the first Santos-Dumont watch, which was shown to his friend, Brazilian pilot Charles Santos-Dumont in 1904 by the brand’s founder, Louis Cartier. Santos-Dumont, one of the pioneers of balloon-driving, once regretted his friend Cartier for keeping track of the time on a hand-held watch while keeping both hands under control. Cartier’s solution is to wear a square wrist Cheap Cartier Replica. Although it is not necessarily the first watch, the Santos-Dumont model is considered the first model designed specifically for men. The colorful pilot and his feats helped popularize this watch style, culminating in the traditional pocket watch as the preferred timer for men and women in the twentieth century.
Since then, the Santos-Dumont watch has been the flagship product of the Cartier Replica menswear line. Last year, the company introduced a platinum case with a hollow movement, the Caliber 9614 MC made by Cartier, which cleverly formed bridges to replace traditional dials with Roman numerals. At this year’s Geneva SIHH, Cartier Replica Watches introduced the watch in a rose gold case. The blue sword-shaped hands and blue faceted sapphires on the crown add a touch of vibrant color to the brown alligator strap.
