The classic Cartier Santos was designed in 1904 by Louis Cartier for his friend, Brazilian aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont. The Santos had a strong and utilitarian aesthetic, with a square case and visible screws on the bezel. In the 1990s, Cartier reworked the Santos, replacing its square case with an octagonal one and a matching octagonal bezel. The special feature of the Cartier Santos Octagon in this picture is the dial, which is called "Oxblood Red" because of its unique color. Beyond that, the crown, in particular, is an eye-catcher, as it is equipped with a blue sapphire stone.
