The Cartier Santos 100 men’s watch W2020004 is both gorgeous and indestructible! This is a high-end luxury watch which can endure the perils of adventure and keep you looking ultra stylish at the same time. It exudes quality and luxury while also looking cool, laid back and savvy, not flashy. It is classic, elegant and dashing while simultaneously coming off as rugged, adventuresome and high-tech.

The Cartier Santos 100 is both strong and gorgeous.

The watch is packed with high-end features such as its titanium ADLC coated case and 18k rose gold bezel. (See what I mean about this watch being both exquisite and rock-solid tough at the same time?) It has a black dial with gold roman numerals, along with three smaller dials (for the chronograph functions). The back of the case is made from solid, black steel, PVD secured via 8 screws. The dial covering is of course made from scratch resistant sapphire crystal and the watch is Swiss made. The Santos 100 is run with Self Winding Automatic Calibre 8630 Movement and stays securely on your wrist with a comfortable black Toile de Voile band. It has a titanium deployment buckle clasp and is water resistant at 100 meters (330 feet)! This amount of water resistance far exceeds the norm for many other luxury watches. Just all the more evidence that Cartier is envisioning this watch being taken on some great adventures!

The perfect owner of this watch is a man who appreciates comfort but who would never sacrifice style, someone who is equally comfortable in the rugged outback as he is in a posh nightclub. This watch is for a man who is looking for a watch that can keep up with his active lifestyle during the day and which can also accompany him when he sits down to a gourmet meal at his favorite local hot spot in the evening. He can feel free to live his lifestyle to the fullest without ever having to change his watch! Cartier makes life brilliantly simple with the beautifully versatile Santos 100.

The Cartier Santos 100 would make a great gift if you have a man in your life who fits the above description. Even if he is not a wild adventurer, daily life provides us with enough bumps in the road to require a watch that can keep up while keeping us looking great at the same time. The only drawback is the price tag. For that much money, they could perhaps have thrown in a diamond or two. Diamond is, after all, one of the strongest materials we have. On the other hand, this watch does not need diamonds to prove its toughness, nor does this watch need their sparkle to prove its quality. It is like the strong, silent type… handsome, tough and so irresistibly attractive.
