Designed for lovers of beautiful objects, the exceptionally styled Santos embodies Cartier's classic sophistication.
This Certified Pre-Owned mens full size Santos features a stainless steel and 18K gold case with elegant silver guilloche Roman dial with gold "epee" hands, sapphire topped crown, and fine Cartier mechanical movement.
This is a newer style Santos with heavy bracelet. Unlike the quartz version of the Santos, this more desirable mechanical example possesses an automatic movement that showcases the timeless art of traditional watchmaking.
It presents in gorgeous condition - it presents as about a 9.5 out of 10. The case is mint. As is the dial and sapphire crystal. The bracelet has a few small hairlines and scratches. We have not polished the bracelet. If you would like us to polish it, the appearance of the watch could be brought up to a 9.8 or 9.9. Please inquire for the cost.
The waterproofing seal in the crown on these watches make them a little stiff when turning the crown. You may prefer to keep it on a watch winder.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.
Don't miss the chance to own this beautiful Santos for a small fraction of the original cost and the retail replacement price.
Worn by Bill Clinton, Elton John, and Djimon Hounsou, Cartier watches have long been favorites of royalty, Hollywood celebrities, and anyone desiring to wear a timepiece of distinction.
Cartier created the Santos in honor of the famous Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont. Alberto Santos-Dumont, a true daring aviation pioneer, flew in France and Europe in some of the first prototype airplanes. After hearing complaints from his friend about how difficult it was to access his pocket watch in the cockpit, Cartier rose to the challenge by creating a special watch that could be strapped to the wrist.
