Other glorious representative of the Cartier Santos family, the present wristwatch stands out for the beauty of its simple but efficient design. The first example of Santos was produced in 1914 and over the year this model has been produced in many metals and finishes making it a very appreciated creation by the Parisian brand. The three-body square white gold case with polished bezel with 8 pins, octagonal cabochon sapphire-set winding crown and long welded lugs is surprisingly well preserved with deep engravings on the back. The dial in all its delicacy is beautiful with the classic painted radial Roman numerals, concentric minute track, secret Cartier signature on the VII and blued steel epée hands.
