Elegant and sophisticated, the Cartier Cougar watch has a true high-fashion style. With its screwed in bezel, Roman numeral dial, a sapphire crown it the Cougar has a look that is distinctly "Cartier."
The original bezel has previously been aftermarket set with sparkling brilliant diamonds that are bright white and eye clean.
The parts are fully Cartier down to the buckle, and it presents in gorgeous condition - it presents as about a 9.8 out of 10. On the wrist it presents as almost indistinguishable from new. Both the case and original ivory dial present as mint.
Note that the ivory dial looks just a little darker tone in person than it did under the bright photography lights and the band is chocolate brown - it doesn't have the reddish hue the photos suggest.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. 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.
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 him 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.
