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.
One of the classic versions of the Santos is the Santos Vendome. The watch showcased here is the largest version of the Vendome, though it is not a large watch. It measures 32mm wide and the crown add a couple more millimeters.
Originally a mens watch, it could also easily be worn by a woman looking for a full size Cartier.
It features a stainless steel case with 18K bezel, classic white Roman dial with blue steel "epee" hands, Cartier Santos bracelet, sapphire topped crown, and quartz movement.
Of the various case material selections, the two-tone Santos Vendome is especially versatile and suited for both casual and dress attire.
It is fully Cartier and presents as gorgeous condition - it presents as about a 9.7 out of 10. The bracelet is tight, and on the wrist it looks like new.
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.
