Today, this complication is taking a new look in new Santos de Cartier watches. The brand introduced the new SANTOS DE CARTIER skeleton watch at the highly anticipated Geneva International Haute Horlogerie 2018, equipped with the brand’s patented strap quick-change system, which makes the strap replacement more convenient.
