The Cartier Santos had its first beginnings in 1904 when Louis Cartier created a watch for his friend, the Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont. The lot here offered is an exponent of the Santos Octagon family, in white gold really unusual and rare and preserved in very nice conditions. Its octagonal bezel is fully realized in white-gold and the bracelet has same material with alternate links with diamond set. The over-mentioned bezel is, furthermore, important because entirely studded with diamonds exactly like the dial which is a full pave diamond, almost unique in its genre since very few examples have been produced with these characteristics.
