Worn by Jennifer Aniston, Anna Wintour, and the late Princess Diana, Cartier's watches have long been favorites of royalty, Hollywood celebrities, and any woman desiring to wear a timepiece of distinction.
Recognized as the first true Cartier wristwatch, the Santos, named after famed Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont for whom it was especially designed, was created in 1904.
The Santos exhibits Cartier's classic sophistication. It features the Santos' classic stainless steel case with screwed down bezel, silver Roman dial with blue steel "epee" hands, sapphire topped crown, and Swiss Cartier automatic movement.
Unlike the quartz version of the Santos, this mechanical example has a mechanism that showcases the timeless art of traditional Swiss watchmaking.
Our Certified Pre-Owned Santos is easily recognizable at a glance as a Cartier.
It is fully Cartier and presents as gorgeous condition - it presents as a 9.8 out of 10. On the wrist it presents essentially as new.
Our Master Watchmaker has fully serviced the watch which consists of fully disassembling the movement, carefully inspecting each part, replacing any overly worn components with genuine Cartier replacements, reassembling and lubricating the movement, replacing all of the waterproofing seals with new Cartier gaskets, and extensive timing testing and regulation (a $695 value). Note that the waterproofing gasket in the crown normally makes this model slightly stiff to wind. If you would prefer never to handwind it, it's a great candidate to for pairing with a watch winder for convenience.
We have meticulously detailed it.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new calfskin leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a full-page custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
