The fruit of friendship and the need for a practical way to tell the time while flying a plane; the Cartier Santos is probably the only watch from Cartier that can rival the popularity of the tank.
The Carree collection came before the Galbee with sharper lines. The 2960 offered for sale here features the classic Roman numerals and "Rail-track" minute scale finished in blue to match the hands and 7 facets sapphire crystal embedded in the crown.
The usage of the Cartier automatic calibre 077 (ETA 2671 equivalent) allows the watch to have a slimmer appearance as compared to the larger sized ETA 2824.
