One of the most iconic watches in the maison’s history, the updated Santos de Cartier was recently unveiled along with the new face of the watch – Jake Gyllenhaal.

The Santos de Cartier has been around for a long time – 40 years, to be exact. But this year’s version sees its biggest change with the introduction of a new QuickSwitch and SmartLink system that allows you to change straps as well as remove or add links to the bracelet without having to head into the boutique.

Accessories

Besides the new Santos de Cartier watch, the maison also introduced a new range of accessories as part of its annual Cartier Rendezvous event.

One of our favourites was the Santos eyewear collection. It was first launched in 2005 with the Santos-Dumont frame. Last year, Cartier revamped the range with metal sun wear in the Santos range and continued updating it for 2018 by adding the signature Santos screw decor on the frames.
