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 watch 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 not the classical layout but it features Roman figures designed through cut-outs within the bridges and blued steel spade hands. The watch is completed by a 9611MC mechanical movement, an 18k white-gold clasp and its original papers and Compact Disc for the instructions use.
