The company would remain in hands of the family until 1972. While primarily a jewelry brand, Cartier has a rich and deep history when it comes to watches. It … introduced its ladies wristwatch well before the end of the 19th century, while the first men’s watch was designed in 1904 at the request of famous aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont. The latter would serve as the inspiration for the 1911 Santos wristwatch, one of many icons of the Parisian brand. Cartier is part of the Richemont group.
