Cartier Santos has become one of the most favorite models from the Cartier catalog. This model is a timeless design from a classic house with a bunch of history on it. In 2018 Cartier revised Santos de Cartier collection with some reissue models; in 2019, Cartier added the new line to Santos’s collection. One of them is the mechanical Santos Chronograph.
The mechanical Santos Chronograph measures 43.3mm and is only 12.5mm thick with a square-shaped case. It wears low and is stable on your wrist, so this watch is perfect for your daily wear. This case comes in stainless steel with a bezel made of black ADLC material that increases this model’s sporty look.
The chronograph features integrated into the watch without disrupting the core value of Santos’s heritage design. The Santos chronograph features a screwed-down and square bezel with “hoods” on the 6 and 12 o’clock positions. Start/Stop pusher featured in caseband at the 9 o’clock position; meanwhile, the reset pusher integrated with the crown at 3 o’clock.
The dial features a silvered satin finish and large Roman numerals. The 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock position and 12-hour counter at nine, meanwhile the running seconds sub-dial comes in a smaller size at 6 o’clock with the date display. The sub-dials, counters, hands and hour marker features SuperLuminova for better readability in the low light condition.
