The Cartier Watch, known as “The House of Cartier” was originally a jewelry boutique, founded in 1847 by Louis-Francois Cartier. About 50 years later, his three grandsons were successfully managing Cartier watch boutiques in Paris, London and New York. The Cartier “Santos” is recognized as the first true Cartier wristwatch. Named after Alberto Santos-Dumont, a dashing Brazilian aviator, the Cartier “Santos ” series was introduced in 1904. Jeweled Cartier “Santos” wristwatches soon followed after the success of the original “Santos”. Louis Cartier later created and patented the deployment-folding clasp for the Cartier “Santos” series in 1910.
