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 with gold accents. The Carrée ("square" in French) is known for its more boxy case and became one of the more iconic watches of the 1980s and helped to popularize the brand with a younger audience. An all gold version of this watch was famously worn by character Gordon Gekko in the movie Wall Street.
