Other glorious representative of the Cartier Santos family, the present wristwatch stands out for the beauty of its simple but efficient design. The square with round edges case is nice with its long welded lugs. At 3 o’clock the trademark of the Parisian brand, the blue sapphire cabochon to set the time and wind the movement. The dial is another example of what is now universally know as “Cartier style” with the engine-turned guillochè decoration, painted black roman numerals and inner minutes scale. The dark strap is linked together thanks to the Cartier deployant in white gold, nicely preserved by the last owner.
