Women’s Santos Demoiselle Steel and Gold Watch

Dynamic.  Refined.  Elegant.  Let your timepiece bring out your best qualities.  The Cartier Women’s Santos Demoiselle Steel and Gold Watch W25066Z6 will communicate the strength and energy that characterizes you, without overpowering your wrist.

When Brazilian aviator Santos-Dumont, for whom this timepiece is named, asked Cartier for a timepiece that didn’t require two hands to operate when flying, Cartier’s wristwatch was born.  This collection pays tribute to the aviator who inspired him.  This lovely Santos Demoiselle timepiece features a five-link bracelet that alternates brushed stainless steel with 18 kt yellow gold.  A square steel case holds the caliber 157 Quartz movement beneath a silver opaline dial.  Blue, sword-shaped hands cut through roman numeral hour markers with precision.  A golden crown fitted with blue spinel crystal accents the muted steel bezel, and draws the eye back to the golden lines running the bracelet’s length.  The effect: simply beautiful.

Like the idea behind the timepiece, this watch prompts inspiration.  If you want to branch outside of the combined yellow gold and steel tones, explore the collection, which offers a pure stainless steel model for $4,100.  Solid rose gold, also an option in this line, sends the price to $17,200, and it continues upward for other precious metals and diamond accents.  For luxury and design that preserve the pocketbook, the Cartier Women’s Santos Demoiselle Steel and Gold Watch W25066Z6 ($6,700) will inspire you to try it on.
