Cartier Santos lady’s stainless steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1985
A lady’s stainless steel automatic centre seconds wristwatch with steel bracelet and Santos presentation case
The Santos is one of oldest vintage wristwatch models. Designed in 1904 by Louis Cartier for his friend, the Brazilian aviator, Alberto Santos Dumont, it is recognised as one of the most iconic of all wristwatch designs. Cased in stainless steel, this watch has a satin finished body with polished flat bezel that is secured by 8 screws. The automatic movement winds itself as it is being worn and incorporates a hack feature, when the crown is pulled out to adjust the time, the seconds hand will stop, allowing the watch to be accurately set to a time signal. In attractive overall condition, there is some light crazing to the dial.
This watch is accompanied by a Cartier Santos presentation case.
Please note that the maximum bracelet length is 160mm.
