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. This lot strikes for its great conditions of preservation since it represents one of the very first model ever produced. The square platinum case is definitely nice with its delicate round edges. The dial in all its delicacy shows a light patina but the roman numbers have not been effected at all keeping their bright black color. To close the object, the classic white gold Cartier deployant.
