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.
Not a large watch, this beautiful Certified Pre-Owned mens midsize Octagon measures 31mm wide and the crown and guards add a couple more millimeters. It features a stainless steel case with 18K bezel, classic ivory Roman dial with blue steel "epee" hands, sapphire topped crown, and Swiss Cartier quartz movement.
It is in gorgeous condition - it presents as about a 9.7 out of 10. Accompanying it are its original papers, box, and tag.
Our Master Watchmaker has just installed a brand new correct and original complete Cartier movement (a $745 value), making this watch nearly like a new-old-stock Octagon, and also installed new genuine Cartier waterproofing gaskets.
It has just been meticulously detailed, making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year international C.O.T. warranty on the movement.
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.
