Cartier 18k Gold Santos Ladies Wristwatch

Mint condition Cartier 18 karat gold hand winding Santos ladies wristwatch. Cartier were founded in Paris over 150 years ago. Cartier are steeped in history, with founder Louis Cartier making their first water resistant watch for the Sultan of Marrakech. They also made the tank watch – inspired by the WW 1 American heavy armored tanks. The now named Santos watch was worn by pioneering aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont over ninety years ago. The style of the watch remains pretty much unchanged since then, and a modern Santos watch is almost the same as the 90 year old model – but made to modern specification, on modern machinery with modern movements. These watches have become style icons of the 20th century. Many watches leaving Cartier’s workshops have become cult objects, no less the Santos tank watch which is an all time classic and one that will never go out of style. This one is in mint condition. It is solid 18 karat gold hand winding mid size gents watch. The case is thick and heavy and there is a good amount of gold in it. It has a square case and dial with blued hands which are a nice contrast against the white dial, full Roman numeral figures and gold case and gold screws. It comes on a brand new replacement leather strap, but also comes with the original black Cartier leather strap , which does not have a buckle. Has attractive angular typical “tank style” lugs with squared off crown protecting shoulders and sapphire cabochon in the crown. It has a sapphire crystal. Altogether an attractive and stylish watch. The gross weight is 20 g which at today’s rates is worth almost £500 in the gold content alone. The gross weight includes the Cartier movement which has a high value. Dimensions are Width including the crown is 20 mm, width excluding the crown is 23 mm, lug to lug is 30 mm and thickness is 7 mm
