Introduction to the Cartier watches!!!
Louis-François Cartier founded Cartier in Paris in 1847 when he took over the workshop of his master. In 1904, the Brazilian pioneer aviator, Alberto Santos-Dumont complained to his friend Louis Cartier of the unreliability and impracticality of using pocket watches while flying. Cartier designed a flat wristwatch with a distinctive square bezel. The watch was widely accepted by the luxury watch market and Santos-Dumont alike. Thus the "Santos" was born, Cartier's first men's wristwatch.
