The Santos Carrée was released in the late 1970s and marked the brand's new approach to offering a more accessible sports watch in stainless steel. The Carrée ("square" in French), known for its more boxy case, became one of the more iconic watches of the 1980s and helped to popularize the brand with a younger audience. While the two-tone version was the original poster child for this model, Cartier also released several all-steel versions with different dial colors. None, however, feels more classically Cartier than this white dial version with black roman numerals and blue sword hands.
