It was in 1904 that Louis Cartier gave a watch to his good friend and aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont that was designed to be worn on the wrist. The Santos watch was the first ever men's wristwatch, originally invented to make it easier to check the time while flying. It was a game-changer in the industry thanks to Santos-Dumont's huge popularity and fame, as well as a very early example of the iconic Art Deco style that would influence fashion and watchmaking for decades. The modern Santos watches maintain the classic hallmarks of the original, including the rounded square case, Roman numerals and fully incorporated lugs—as well as the stunning guilloché dial on this model. This Cartier has undergone a thorough inspection of water resistance, accuracy, functionality and condition to determine the level of reconditioning required to meet our strict standards. It has also been referenced against technical documents and manufacturer records where available to ensure authenticity and a clean history. This is a pre-owned Cartier Santos W20055D6. It has a 29mm Steel case, a Beige Roman Numeral dial, a Steel bracelet, and is powered by an Automatic movement. The case has a 2319xxxxxxxx serial making it approximately 4 years. It is supplied with a comprehensive 12 month Watchfinder warranty.
