... both the big and medium size models a few weeks ago and inmediately fell in love with them.
I finally decided for the medium no date version due to its size and lack of date window and took it home. Hope to post some pictures soon.
Definitively a very charming, elegant and classy timepiece!
The easy link feature and the easy change of bracelet for straps make for an additional attraction. I really love this watch!
Thank you for sharing these great shots and your comments about both the watch and the event!
Cheers! Abel.

Report of the Cartier Santos party yesterday in Paris

 
 By: foversta : April 20th, 2018-15:22
Thanks to the team of the Cartier boutique of Paris Opéra, I could attend the event dedicated to the new Santos collection which took place in another Cartier boutique of Paris: the one located on the Champs-Elysées. Actually, I was very happy to be invit...

and it was just if I was there. It must have been a wonderful party. GEO

Certainly seems like a determined way forward!

Focusing on the historically strong models of the brand but working on making the brand relevant for a new generation. Now if only CPCP was to return... Thanks a lot for your extensive coverage of the event, Forevsta!

Thanks so much for the great coverage!

I am a proud owner of the new Santos medium model since launch day. Really loving this awesome versatile piece, looks great on the bracelet as well the calf strap. And you are right about the 1847MC being enhanced. It is extremely accurate, in fact much m... 

It's great report.

I agree that the medium is the way to go. Does it come with both a bracelet and a strap? I also miss all those rooms with the models. You know, the rooms you were sneaking into the last time you did a Cartier report?

Yes Mike, the SS versions come with a bracelet and a strap

About the rooms, do you mean the rooms of the Cartier boutique rue de la Paix? Cartier is now working to define an identity per flagship store. And I think it is a very good idea. But it is very difficult to be more charming than the boutique Rue de la Pa... 

I think Mike means the various rooms

of the pop up Boutique you posted on december 17th.

I am interested in the new Santos design

FrX, Thanks for the report and await a more formal watch review. The redesigned Santos mid-sized without date display is interesting and the quick change straps or bracelet sounds user friendly. Regards, MTF

Looks like a nice event.

I’ve tried both mid and large sizes. Still undecided on what I really want. But leaning in large size.

THanks! You can't be wrong with any...

It is after all a matter of style, of purpose. One of the guests told me that he was preferring the large size because for him, the watch was looking slimmer. So as you can see, it is a matter of taste! Thanks! Fx

Excellent coverage, very enjoyable

Thank you for sharing, and one Cartier Santos Skeleton in steel for me, please! The Santos arrives as exactly the watch Cartier needs right how. Short of a Roadster revival, this Santos family is the best mainstream introduction that Cartier could have ch... 

Looks amazing!

Inviting me to view the Santos in the boutique. Too late, I’ve already gone and tried them. This is indeed a contender to be my next watch (maybe next year).

Solid report and superb photos!

Timeless watch. In my opinion a Santos get’s better and better. It is compare to cars a Porsche 911. But still the classics are worth to collect. I do not get homesick to date windows, because i am to laizy to set the date. Maybe a perputual calendar is s...
