The Octagon is a seldom seen watch in the Santos line and is one of the affordable distinctive luxury watches. It is beautifully styled and its eight-sided bezel is suggestive of the iconic Audemars Piguet Royal Oak.
Today's offering showcases this Certified Pre-Owned ladies Octagon with "Godron" bracelet. It features a stainless steel case with 18K bezel, classic white Roman dial with blue steel "epee" hands, sapphire topped crown, and mechanical movement.
Unlike the quartz version of the Santos, this more desirable mechanical example possesses an automatic movement and in a way showcases the timeless art of traditional watch making.
Besides its beautiful condition, what sets this example apart from others is its unique "Godron" bracelet. We have been told that the bracelet was a special edition made for one year in the '90's.
It is 100% Cartier and presents in gorgeous condition - it presents as about a 9.8 out 10. Its case is mint as is its original dial. The bracelet presents as mint and has no stretch - it is essentially as tight as new.
On the wrist it presents as virtually like new. It has just been fully serviced by a Master Watchmaker and is keeping time within approx. one second per hour.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
