Cartier created the Santos in honor of the famous Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont.
The Santos exhibits Cartier's classic sophistication. It features a stainless steel case with 18K gold bezel, white dial with blue steel hands, sapphire topped crown, and automatic movement. Unlike the quartz version of the Santos, this mechanical example has a mechanism that showcases the timeless art of traditional Swiss watchmaking.
The watch presents in gorgeous condition. On the wrist it looks just short of mint. It has light wear to the back. It continues to keep time nearly on par with a new Cartier.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
