Running until the end of May at T Galleria by DFS, Macau, Shoppes At Four Seasons, the digital exhibition “harnesses special lighting effects, dynamic aesthetics and contrasting textures, with an emphasis on lacquered black and brushed metal,” Cartier said.
The exhibition features two semi-open rooms, with the Santos de Cartier “masterpieces” taking centre stage in one room, while the other contains a data hub illuminated by LED lighting and digital screens.
The Santos de Cartier watches date back to 1900 when aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont met master jeweller Louis Cartier. After the aviator noted the difficulty of checking the time on his pocket watch while flying, Cartier went on to invent the first purpose-designed modern wristwatch for his friend.
Created in 1904, the Santos-Dumont watch is credited with revolutionising watchmaking, and the Santos de Cartier timepiece has since evolved “into an embodiment of determination, freedom and comfort,” Cartier claims.
Each Santos de Cartier watch has been assembled, calibrated and tested by Cartier workshops for resistance to variations in position, humidity, temperature and pressure, exposure to impact and acceleration.
Straps for the Santos de Cartier are available in steel, gold, calfskin or alligator skin.
DFS Group senior vice president fashion, watches, jewellery and accessories Christophe Chaix said: “The introduction of the new Santos de Cartier Watch demonstrates what DFS and Cartier do best; offering extraordinary pieces through our unrivalled commitment to high-end quality.”
