The present lot is a nice representative of Cartier Santos family, whose first example was produced in 1914. Over the year this model has been produced in many metals and finishes making it a very appreciated creation by the Parisian brand. The here offered reference 2651 comes with a solid square 18K white-gold two body case fitted with a smooth bezel, recessed sapphire-set winding-crown and a case back secured with 8 screws in extremely fresh conditions. The dial has the classical layout with matte silver background, black outer radial Roman numerals and inner closed track from minutes, sword-shaped hands and secret Cartier signature on the VII. The watch is topped by a water resistance of 30 meters and over 40 hours of power reserve and is completed by an 18k white-gold clasp, all in almost mint conditions and its original box and papers.
