Santos 100 Watches
The Cartier Santos 100 watches emerged as a game changer in the wristwatch manufacturing industry. While most brands of watches have either a circular or a near circular dial, these watches hit the market with square dials. Although several features of the watches have been remodeled, the shape of their dial remains a square. In fact, it has become their identity.
However, unlike true squares, the dials have curve edges and that adds to their elegance. Their case is usually 38mm wide and about 10.43mm thick. Their stainless steel case takes care of their attractive look. In addition to that is the polished bevel edges along the case sides.
This review will not be complete without mentioning that the Cartier Santos 100 watches are water resistant up to 100 meter deep. Since you are not a professional diver, there is no way you will go as deep as that in any water. The point here is that you can go for swimming, enjoy some water activities, or have a bath in your Jacuzzi with your Cartier Santos 100 watch on your wrist.
Their dial comes with a white background and black Roman numeral hour markers. The color combination gives great contrast. The second hand is always black while both hour and minute hands are white with black frame.
They have either a black or brown leather strap. The combination of stainless steel case and black/brown leather strap adds some class to your wrist. The Cartier Santos 100 watches have proved that watches don’t have to come with a circular dial to be a hit. The watches have a masculine design. That is why they exude some sort of masculinity on the wrist.
The cases come in 18K rose gold, pink gold, or yellow gold and the three colors are great. Automatic movement is also one of their hallmarks. What finally seals the deal is their ADLC coating as well as the sapphire crystal that does not break easily. Even if your Cartier Santos 100 watch accidentally drops from your hand, it will remain intact.
Cartier Santos 100 prices start from about $6,500 to about $55,000 which is the price of Santos Dumont Skeleton watch that happens to be one of the costliest models of the brand.
