Cartier Santos Dumont Black Titanium

Carbon Skeleton…

Cartier has really stepped up its watch game over the past few years (SIHH 2009, SIHH 2010), and this year’s collection keeps with the trend (SIHH 2011).  I really like this new 2011 piece — the Santos Dumont “Carbon Skeleton”, featuring a skeletonized, black DLC-coated titanium case.  No word yet on production numbers or price.
