Cartier has been a pioneer in the world of wristwatches since 1904. The history of Cartier watches begins with Louis Cartier, a jeweler and jewelry designer who was well-known to Parisian high society. Cartier also made the first wristwatch for pilots, the famous Cartier Santos. This square-cased watch debuted in 1906 and quickly became a favorite among Cartier’s affluent customers. Cartier began manufacturing a small number of Cartier Santos watches in 1908, with serial production following in 1911. Many more versions of the Cartier Santos followed, and the watch remains one of the most iconic Cartier men’s watches today.
