Cartier Vintage Santos Dumont 1970s
Unadulterated design since the early 1905 the Cartier Santos Dumont is actually amongst the first wristwatch models ever made. Squarish case with it’s raised studded bezel it is still around albeit in different proportions. This specific watch is from the early 80s.
The 18k gold case measuring 25 x 35mm mm is in absolute sharp conditions with very defined edges and crisp finish. The hallmarks and engravings are deep and the watch truly glows in condition.
The dial is in pristine conditions with no cracking, pristine painted roman numerals and hidden signature at 7.
The manual wind movement is winding smooth, running well.
On it’s original lizard Cartier strap that will fit a 6.5 wrist and original 18k Cartier deployant buckle.
Sold in NYC Cartier mansion at the height of the Aldo Cipullo era, a wonderful specimen to cherish and enjoy!
