Video: Calibre de Cartier - Episode II

May 25, 2011

Equipped with the 1904 MC Manufacture Cartier movement, the Calibre De Cartier's facets are shown in this venturesome second episode. According to Cartier, "the conquest of time took on a whole new meaning in 1904 when Louis Cartier created a watch for his friend, the aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont. It was one of the very first watches to be worn on the wrist and enabled the pilot to read the time while keeping his hands on the controls during the flight."

Watch below Episode I, in which the driver of the car reflects how Santos-Dumont checked the time during his flights.
