The Cartier Santos Demoiselle Stainless Steel Quartz Watch W25064Z5 is a simple yet stately timepiece perfect for a woman who appreciates classic elegance for everyday wear.
Cartier’s iconic Santos collection takes its name from Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont, a friend of Louis Cartier who wanted the ability to tell time while flying. In 1904 the Santos watch was created—one of the first of its kind—complete with a round-angled square dial, blue sword-shaped stainless steel hands, and black Roman numerals.
As a feminine version of this iconic collection, the Santos Demoiselle delivers the same style but in a more delicate, graceful way. A sapphire crystal encases the white, silver grained dial. The square, stainless steel case, measuring 21 mm in diameter, is built slightly smaller than the men’s version to better suit a woman’s wrist. Steel brick links make up the polished bracelet which is finished in a deployment clasp, creating a seamless look when the watch is fastened. The octagonal crown is set with a synthetic, faceted spinel for a nice touch of color. In addition, this timepiece is water resistant up to 100 feet (30 meters). The quartz movement is made carefully in Switzerland and tested thoroughly to ensure the highest quality—a statement that can be made about all Cartier movements.
Priced at $3,485 the Cartier Santos Demoiselle in Stainless Steel makes a great purchase for a first-time Cartier customer, or someone who wants to begin their luxury watch collection. While the Santos Demoiselle comes in 18-carat yellow gold, white gold, rose gold and even diamond-embellished models, the stainless steel design encompasses the beauty and elegance without a $15,000 or $20,000 price tag.

The design may be a bit simple for women who prefer embellishments or sub-dials to display additional complications. However, this watch is available in a diamond-embellished model for those who seek a bit more sparkle.
The Cartier Santos Demoiselle Stainless Steel Quartz Watch is a beautiful timepiece that many women will enjoy and love to wear every day. It is a representation of Cartier’s rich history and is an ideal watch for Cartier admirers.
