Today's offering showcases this mens automatic Santos Ronde in steel. At the time it was made, before the introduction of the Santos 100, we believe it was the largest size Santos. While not an especially large watch, it is larger than the rest of Cartier's similar watches from the era, measuring 36mm including the guards.
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 watchmaking.
The watch presents in pleasing condition - it presents about an 8.7 out of 10. It has a few remnants of wear on the case. If you would like it freshly expertly polished, please inquire.
Our watchmaker has just freshly cleaned and oiled the movement and it is running true. Accompanying it is its Cartier box.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
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.
