Cartier - Santos 100 Carbon and Ballon Bleu Carbon

| No comment
The Santos 100 and Ballon Bleu watches, two watchmaking icons by Cartier, are now available in two new steel versions with an ADLC (Amorphous Diamond-Like Carbon) coating for a casual and modern look.


The deep charcoal colour creates a nice contrast with the white Roman numerals and rail-track, the sword-shaped steel hour and minute hands treated with luminescent material and the thin red hand indicating the seconds. Both models feature the typical blue stone of the winding crown, a distinctive trait of Cartier watches.



The Santos 100 Carbon and Ballon Bleu Carbon are powered by the automatic 1847 MC Manufacture movement beating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vph) and offering a power reserve of 42 hours.

The case dimensions of the Santos 100 Carbon are 51.1 mm x 41.3 mm while the Ballon Bleu Carbon has a diameter of 42 mm. The first is water resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet while the second to 30 metres / 100 feet.


Louis Cartier created the Santos watch in 1904 as a tribute to his friend and aviator Alberto Santos Dumont. In 2004, the Santos 100 model marked the centenary of the watch. The Ballon Bleu was first introduced in 2007.

Prices: Euro 7,300 / US$ 7,600 for the Santos 100 Carbon (ref. WSSA0006) and Euro 6,500 / US$ 6,600 for the Ballon Bleu Carbon (ref. WSBB0015). cartier.com
