Classic. Elegant. Timeless. These are 3 words typically associated with Cartier watches, especially with signature pieces like the Santos de Cartier and Ballon Bleu de Cartier, both of which are long-standing favourites of the brand ever since they were launched in 1904 and 2007 respectively. The Santos, in particular, is one that has undergone multiple changes since its inception over a century ago, and for 2019, Cartier has brought back the Santos-Dumont, which was unveiled over at SIHH earlier this year. It’s a stunning piece that captures the elegance of the original design from 1904, one that features a slimmer profile and is furnished with a beaded winding crown for an added touch of sophistication.
Most importantly, the Santos-Dumont is a great option for those looking for an entry-level timepiece from Cartier, considering it’s priced from SGD5000 for the Small model in steel (powered by a high autonomy quartz movement) and comes with a luxurious alligator-skin strap that’s perfect for the everyday. Then of course, there’s the Santos de Cartier Chronograph, a handsome watch that’s not only big on utility, but also one that’s highly versatile as well, with two interchangeable straps for you to get fun and playful with.
Ballon Bleu de Cartier, on the other hand, is frankly the go-to watch if you prefer a perfectly round watch face sitting prettily on your wrist. Today, it’s offered in sizes ranging from a 36 mm version in steel right up to the bigger 42 mm versions that come in bi-metal (18k gold and steel) and full gold (rose gold and yellow gold) options.
Aside from stunning watches, the fine jewellery offerings from Cartier will definitely make for a great gift as well. It might not seem obvious from the get-go, but the LOVE Bracelet (priced from SGD6100) featured above are the open-cuff versions that come in a newer style which makes it really easy to slip on and off. And speaking of ease of wear, the Juste Un Clou Bracelet (priced from SGD9350) is another piece that’s equally big in this aspect. Simply give it a slight pull to detach the bracelet from the nail head, put it over your wrist, hook it on, and you’re good to go.
And if he already has the bracelet, how about getting an accompanying ring to go along? The Love Ring (the thicker original versions, not the wedding band) comes in 18k yellow gold or 18k white gold and priced at SGD4500 and SGD4800 respectively, while the Juste Un Clou Ring is an equally great option starting from SGD1550 for the SM size, going upwards for the ones decked out with sparkling brilliant-cut diamonds. In other words, all perfect gifts for your perfect man this holiday season.
