Cartier reinvents the classic wristwatch with the new Santos

Cartier is revisiting their Santos watch which was first created over a century ago back in 1904. The last time this watch had been redesigned was on its 100th anniversary in 2004, now the Santos 100 collection will be replaced by a brand new range of Santos watches which reimagine the classic.

The square watch has been reissued in two sizes, and are available in several options including stainless steel, steel and yellow gold, pink gold, and yellow gold. The larger version is also available as a pink gold or steel skeletonized watch. Inside, an automatic caliber 1847 MC powers the watch while on the outside, roman numerals and those distinctive screw details on the bezel give the watch something of an old-school feel.

Cartier has introduced an easier way to change bracelets, so if you buy a couple of different straps, you can give the watch a different look every time you wear it. Additionally the brand has incorporated SmartLinks which means you can easily change links on your own at home. Prices of the new Santos collection range from $6,250 for a medium case in stainless steel to $60,000 for the skeletonized pink gold large case version.
