Worn by Bill Clinton, Elton John, and Djimon Hounsou, Cartier watches have long been favorites of royalty, Hollywood celebrities, and anyone desiring to wear a timepiece 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 him 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. Designed for lovers of beautiful objects, the exceptionally styled Santos embodies Cartier's classic sophistication. This mens large Santos features a stainless steel case with 18K bezel, classic white Roman dial with blue steel "epee" hands, sapphire topped crown, and high grade mechanical movement. Unlike the quartz version of the Santos, this more desirable mechanical example possesses an automatic movement that showcases the timeless art of traditional watchmaking. We are pleased to offer the watch in just short of mint condition. It is a one owner watch that was serviced and maintained by Cartier. Our Certified Master Watchmaker has installed new waterproofing seals.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF CARTIER

Named "Jeweler to the Kings and the King of Jewelers" by Edward VII, Cartier has attracted Russian, British, and Indian aristocrats as well as some of the most esteemed celebrities since Louis-Françoise Cartier founded his namesake brand in 1847.

During the 1930s, Cartier’s directrice-artistique Jeanne Toussaint sent Cartier designers to the zoo where their innovations led to Cartier’s renowned panther and tiger designs. When Duchess of Windsor commissioned Cartier to create two 3-D panther brooches (one composed with cabochon emeralds, the second with diamonds and sapphires) in 1948, it was soon after that the panther became the symbol of Cartier.

Beyond the symbolic panther, two of Cartier’s most desired collections remain the Cartier Tank and the Cartier LOVE Series.
