The World’s First Wrist Watch Cartier Santos Watch

Cartier is a French watch and jewellery manufacturer, founded in 1847 by Louis-Franç-ois Cartier at 31 Rue Montorgueil, Paris. In 1874, his son Yaffa Cartier inherited his management rights, and his grandsons Louis Cartier, Pierre Cartier, and Jacques Cartier developed it into a world-renowned brand. It is now a subsidiary of Compagnie Financière Richemont SA. In 1904, he designed the world’s first wrist-wrist watch, Cartier Santos, for the pilot Albato-Santos-Domen.
