Who other than Louis Cartier could grant the wish of the famous Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos Dumont to be able to tell time while flying? This friendship, formed in 1904, yielded one of the first ever wristwatches. The iconic model is reinterpreted here with a slightly curved case embellished with exposed screws, modest and elegant in equal measures.
