-Description

Cartier is a French brand that was founded in 1847 by Louis Francois-Cartier as a jeweler, and has a long history in the wristwatch industry. The history of the Santos collection began with the Santos de Cartier in 1904.

Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont approached Louis Josee Cartier, the third generation of Cartier, and said, ``I want a watch that allows me to check the time without taking my hands off the control stick while flying an airplane.'' is the reason for its birth.

The Santos Galbee is a vintage model that is now discontinued, and is based on the original Santos, with a design featuring screws from the airplane that inspired its creation.

 

The dial is a combination of a thin ivory color dial, black Roman numerals, and blued steel hands. This kind of dial, which is not currently available in the lineup, is also one of the charms of vintage watches.

The buckle is an old type with the Cartier logo. This may be one of the reasons why we choose vintage Santos.
