How to Install Your Cartier Santos-Dumont Strap

Our Cartier Santos-Dumont straps are made with a metal adapter within, ensuring a tight integrated fit with the Santos-Dumont watches. However, this also means that the strap is not very pliable, and it might be a little tricky to install the strap onto the watch. Here's our quick guide on installing your strap:

  1. Instead of inserting the spring bar directly into the drilled holes on the watch case, anchor one side of the spring bar against the outer portion of the lugs.
  2. Compress the spring bar, and position the strap between the lugs of the watch.
  3. Move the strap inwards, closer to the drilled holes, until you hear / feel the spring bar sitting within the holes.
  4. And finally, always remember to give the strap a good tuck to ensure that it is locked in place before putting it on your wrist.

Here's a short video to show you how to install and remove your Santos-Dumont strap on the watch.
