Cartier Santos Carree 0901 from 1979 (Burgundy Dial, Box and Papers)
Behold the Cartier Santos, a timepiece born from the realms of friendship and the practical demands of aviation, a true testament to the spirit of innovation. While Cartier's Tank series holds an iconic status, the Santos stands as its equally renowned counterpart.
Within our offering, you'll find an exceptional rarity - the Cartier Santos Carree 0901, graced with a luxurious burgundy lacquer dial and adorned with a ruby cabochon crown. This exquisite piece was crafted to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Santos collection. The Carree line, characterized by its sharp lines and distinctive design, predates the Galbee, showcasing a different facet of Cartier's creative journey.
At its heart beats the Cartier automatic calibre 077, equivalent to the ETA 2671. This choice of movement imparts a graceful slimness to the watch, setting it apart from its larger ETA 2824-powered counterparts.
The watch's case and bezel are in superb condition, bearing the subtle marks of its well-lived life. Upon close inspection, you may discern faint lacquer lines on the dial from certain angles, a testament to its age and character. Similarly, light signs of aging grace the hands, though they remain virtually imperceptible to the naked eye. The crystal, meticulously cared for, is free from any scratches.
In addition to this horological treasure, you will receive its original box, papers, and a bracelet tailored to fit wrists up to 6 inches. To safeguard your privacy, the serial number has been discreetly concealed.
