On The Wrist:
Tan Twan Eng wears the new Santos de Cartier watch which is built upon the same spirit of the first Santos watch, created back in 1904. However, this new watch is updated with modern innovations like an anti-magnetic Calibre 1847 MC movement, a water resistance of up to 10ATM (100 metres) and an innovative Cartier QuickSwitch system that lets the wearer change the strap or bracelet without the need of any tools.
