SANTOS DE CARTIER

Alberto Santos Dumont was a Brazilian aviation pioneer and heir to a wealthy family of coffee producers. Santos Dumont dedicated himself to aeronautical study and experimentation in Paris, France, where he spent most of his adult life. He designed, built, and flew the first practical dirigible, demonstrating that routine, controlled flight was possible.

A wealthy engineer needed a suitable watch able to tell the time while flying. The early 1900s were the era of pocket watches - beautiful, precise yet impractical - however the wrist watch was still a novelty. Santos commissioned Louis Cartier and in 1904 Cartier made a watch which gave birth to the era of purpose built wristwatches. Featuring a geometric shape and exposed screws, the watch quickly became one of the Cartier's watchmaking icons. The Santos rose to the rank of a classic that would defy the hands of time and remain in production until today.

As you would imagine, early Santos watches are extremely sought after. Today's offer is a mid-size ladies Santos 18K gold and steel classic from the 1980s. Unlike a contemporary Santos, this one features self-winding automatic movement and a date function. Sapphire cabochon is another Cartier signature feature. Worn sporadically it is in a really fine condition.

The beauty is in the simple fact that like any other classic, this watch looks as modern as it ever was. Ready for a new owner!

Only $2,999 - a fraction of the price of a new Cartier tu-tone watch.
