Cartier's impact transcends its commercial activity alone. It is a historical and cultural institution, an icon of its time. Heritage is important to the Maison's identity, providing a context and forming an integral part of its current creations and ethos. Cartier was founded in Paris in 1847 by Louis-Francois Cartier when he took over the workshop of his master.In 1874, his son Alfred Cartier took over the administration of the company, but it was Alfred's sons Louis, Pierre and Jacques, who were responsible for establishing the world-wide brand name of Cartier. In 1904, the Brazilian aviator, Alberto Santos-Dumont complained of the unreliability and impracticality of using pocket watches while flying to his friend Louis Cartier. Cartier rose to the challenge, designing a flat wristwatch with a distinctive square bezel. This watch was not only a hit with Santos-Dumont, but also with Cartier's many clients. Thus, out of this timeless design, the "Santos" was born. This was the first men's wristwatch.
