It's pretty rare that we get to introduce you guys to an entirely new product from http://www.syrauto.com/cartier-santos-100-replica-uk.html. Their line has stayed shockingly consistent over the past 70 years or so, and well, by now, you know what it consists of; Submariner, GMT, Datejust, Day-Date, Daytona, et. al.Last week we showed you a Cartier Santos that featured a Louis Cottier engineered world-time movement, and now we're here to show you an actual Cartier Santos prototype that has never been seen before. Thecartier Santos Dumont replica Divomet was an in-house designed diving meter with the purpose of reading the depth of oceans or lakes; one hand indicating the feet 10 by 10, the second hand showing the relevant feet. A bracelet passes through the circular crankcase which contains the mechanism as found in a Bourdon manometer.The Divomet, we are safe to assume, was developed in hopes to be used by Jacques Piccard and Donald Walsh in their descent in the Trieste to the deepest known point on earth (the Mariana Trench in the Pacific). There, they used the cartier Tank Anglaise replica to the outside of the bathyscaph. The Cartier Santos Divomet never made it out of prototyping and was, up until this very item surfaced, totally undocumented. It is interested to note that the Divomet features a bakelite outter ring, just like you'd find on the early Cartier Santos GMT 6542s made at the same time. This particular (and particularly awesome) piece of Cartier Santos dive history is coming up for sale at Christies November 15th Geneva sale and has a pre-sale estimate of roughly $16,000-$21,000. Click here fore more details. We heard from the folks at Tourneau yesterday that they would like to extend a special invitation to HODINKEE readers for an event this Thursday. From 5-8pm at the Tourneau Time Machine, Cartier Santos will have on display the original Deep Sea Special, the legendary watch that descended almost 7 miles below the water's surface to the deepest point on planet earth. The watch is a legend, as is US NAVY Captain Don Walsh, the man who piloted the Trieste to such depths - and he will be on hand for you to meet. All in celebration of Cartier Santos's 50 years of diving heritage, this is an event not to be missed.A Chance to see the Cartier Santos Deep Sea Special, the deepest diving watch in history, and meet Captain Don Walsh, the man who accompanied it
