Cartier Extends Santos Collection With Sporty New Chronograph

SIHH 2018 saw the rebirth of the innovative Santos de Cartier – the world’s first pilot’s watch. At SIHH 2019, Cartier continued their Santos magic, dropping the revived Santos-Dumont and the striking and sporty Santos Chronograph with the crown acting as the single pusher for start-stop functionality.

The timepiece arrives in three colour schemes: rose gold, two-tone yellow gold, and a contemporary steel/black combination. Two sizes are available, a ‘Large’ (35.1mm x 45.99mm) or ‘Extra Large’ (39.88mm x 47.50mm). Three subdials at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock showcase the chronograph registers while a discreet date adds additional functionality to the piece. A choice of interchangeable straps adds further customisation options for buyers.

The Santos Chronograph is powered by the Caliber 1904-CH MC, Cartier’s in-house 48-hour power reserve mechanics. Depending on the customisation choices of the buyer, prices will range from roughly $10,000 to $28,000.
