Written by: Garrett Miller

Cartier, a brand that has long been associated with luxury and refinement, is continuing their tradition of producing classically elegant watches. The Cartier Santos 100 Steel W200737G   maintains this tradition with a simple, clean design. The face is adorned with Roman numeral hour markers that make a bold visual impact in contrast to the silvered opaline dial. The dial is not cluttered with chronograph sub-dials like so many other watches on the market these days, so its look can definitely be called “classic.”

Drawbacks: The Cartier Santos 100 Steel W200737G features a simple, clean aesthetic with minimal distractions, sub-dials, or extra markings. It is not a sports or “performance” watch.  It will not allow you to read out second measurements while driving a race car. You cannot take it scuba diving. It will not survive a 1,000 foot fall from the top of a cliff. You get the picture. Rather, the Santos 100 Steel (W200737G) is a well-crafted, elegant timepiece that will impress in the boardroom, on a date, or at a ritzy social function.

The Bottom Line

The Cartier Santos 100 Steel W200737G is not the watch for an extreme athlete or outdoor enthusiast. It is, however, a versatile, stylish, classy timepiece that is sure to impress on any occasion.
