In a sublime homage to the legendary aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont, Cartier presents two new iterations of its iconic Santos watch, perpetuating his innovative spirit and unwavering love for freedom. These versions, the elegant Santos-Dumont Rewind and the bold Santos de Cartier Dual Time, reimagine our perception of time with unparalleled sophistication and distinction.

The Santos-Dumont Rewind stands as an unprecedented technical and aesthetic challenge, reversing the traditional reading of time. With an exquisite carnelian dial and Roman numerals arranged counterclockwise, this limited edition in platinum reveals the time with spade-shaped hands that move backward, powered by the inverted manual-winding movement 230 MC. This audacious design captures the magic and uniqueness of the aviator, offering a unique perspective on the passage of time.

On the other hand, the Santos de Cartier Dual Time is a bold evolution that allows the consultation of two time zones simultaneously. Equipped with an automatic mechanical movement, it combines exceptional resilience and reliability with an ergonomic design. Its features include rhodium-plated and luminescent sword-shaped hands, a faceted heptagonal crown, and an adjustable grey counter. The strap, interchangeable thanks to the patented QuickSwitch system, and the adjustable links without tools provide unparalleled comfort and versatility.

In an additional tribute to Alberto Santos-Dumont’s timeless elegance, the Santos-Dumont collection is enriched with three exclusive versions: olive green and platinum, peacock blue and rose gold, and taupe grey and yellow gold. These pieces are distinguished by the use of a translucent lacquer that brings exceptional brilliance and depth to the dial, creating a captivating visual effect.

Each watch in the collection perpetuates Santos-Dumont’s legacy with sophisticated aesthetics and high-end mechanical precision, reflecting Cartier’s unmatched savoir-faire. These creations not only celebrate the art of watchmaking but also embody the vision of an aviator whose dream was to conquer the skies and defy time.
