I am selling my personal watch which has only been worn a few times and has been sitting in the box in my safe. This is a Cartier Santos 100 XL
Looking to move house to free up some space and cash which is the reason for sale. Its a lovely piece and I am asking a very little price for it at £3995.00 inc postage, Retail new £6000!
I am so happy for a cash on collection (based in Buckinghamshire) as understand you may want to try this on first. Based on this excellent condition. Bought from new in 2016 one owner, as a birthday gift comes with Box, Certificate and outbox. Immaculate condition. Strap is black alligator leather. Any questions, please do let me know.
Invented in 1904, the Santos was the first ever men's wristwatch, originally invented for aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont to make it easier to check the time while flying. The watch was a game-changer in the industry thanks to Santos-Dumont's huge popularity and fame, and to celebrate the origins of the timepiece, Cartier produced a wonderful series of Santos watches called the Santos 100. Modern Santos watches still maintain the classic hallmarks of the original, including the rounded square case, Roman numeral hour markers and fully incorporated lugs.
