 Fun Fact Friday:

In 1904, Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos Dumont, who was known to fly his dirigibles (air ship much like a blimp) around the Eiffel Tower, expressed to his friend Louis Cartier the desire for a watch he didn’t have to take out of his pocket when trying to operate the flying machine. Cartier in turn, built him a wristwatch called the Santos-Dumont, which the company shortly thereafter put into production as its first series-produced wristwatch, calling it the Santos.
