Cartier Santos Octagon Ladies Watch, Automatic - Stainless Steel


Item No. 8276

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.

This Certified Pre-Owned ladies Octagon features a stainless steel case with octagonal 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.

It is all-original and presents as gorgeous condition - about a 9.5 out of 10. On the wrist it presents nearly like new.

Its case presents as just short of perfect mint condition. On the wrist it presents as mint. Its untouched original dial is also mint. Its bracelet is just short of mint.

It has been freshly fully serviced by a Master Watchmaker (a $445 value) and has good reverser wheels for manual winding. Note that the stem and waterproofing gasket in the crown normally makes this model quite stiff to wind. That is not the case with this watch that winds very well with much less stiffness than most.

For the finishing touch we have meticulously detailed it making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

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.

Cartier Santos:
Celebrated for their impeccable quality and flawless designs, Cartier watches are among the most luxurious in the world. Worn by Jennifer Aniston, Anna Wintour, Jackie Kennedy, and the late Princess Diana, the company's watches have long been favourites of royalty, Hollywood celebrities, and any person desiring to wear a watch 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.
