Iconic Timepiece: Cartier Santos X Mr Porter

After a first successful collaboration to bring the Panthère de Cartier high jewelry collection to fruition and debuted successfully in 2017, Mr Porter is teaming up with Cartier once again to reissue seven Santos wristwatches, including one exclusive steel model with a black grained leather strap. Other variations such as rose gold, yellow gold and steel are available.

The iconic Cartier Santos timepiece that was manufactured in 1904 was designed by Louis Cartier for an old friend, who was an aviation pioneer. The Santos wristwatch took after the name of his friend, Mr Alberto Santos-Dumont.

More than a century later, “the new Santos de Cartier watch is an authentic and contemporary re-working of a classic,” said Toby Bateman, Managing Director at Mr Porter.

The wristwatch has been given a new lease of life to reflect a more contemporary look while staying true to the marque’s signature DNA. The updated versions feature an in-house caliber, a new bezel and new materials.

“This is an excellent opportunity to provide our global Mr Porter customer with an iconic brand that we know they have been waiting for, and we look forward to launching further Cartier collections later in 2018,” added Bateman.

The new Santos range of watches will go on sale from April 5 on Mr Porter.
