The Cartier Santos is, in many ways, the first modern wristwatch. Created for the Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont after he complained about the difficulties of handling a pocket watch in flight, the Cartier Santos quickly became an icon of the times. The overall design of a rectangular watch with rounded edges and a dial featuring thin, elongated Roman numerals has survived through to modern times, proving its ubiquity and timelessness.
This Cartier is in excellent condition, with some light scratches on the case and caseback. There is also a mark to the dial between 4-5 o'clock. It is presented with a suede strap made for Subdial by Molequin, and has a Cartier pin buckle.
Comes with inner and outer Cartier box set, outer card has a few creases and a slight tear from storage, a copy of a letter from Cartier in 2020, a spare used Cartier strap and a dealer guarantee card from 2021.
Cartier comfortably sits at the intersection between fine watchmaking and art, combining years of heritage with eye-catching and unique case designs. From its inception in the turn of the 20th Century, Cartier has earned a well-deserved reputation for being a manufacture that has successfully transformed the humble wristwatch from a soldier's tool into a true object of desire.
