The elegant and refined Santos-Dumont Skeleton watch combines a modern design with a pure movement. This one-of-a-kind watch is powered by the caliber 9611 MC, which displays its own functions in the guise of a dial. Another characteristic is that the movement's bridges are shaped like Roman numerals to indicate the hours. This innovative design reinterprets the masculine elegance of the model that was originally created by Cartier for the pioneering pilot, Alberto Santos-Dumont.
