Cartier is a French brand that Louis-Francois-Cartier started his workshop as a jeweler in 1847 and has a very long history in the field of watches.

Santos de, born in 1904 and subsequently listed as a representative Cartier watch, his Cartier is the original Santos.

Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont consults with Cartier's third generation Louis Jose Cartier, "I want a watch that allows me to check the time without taking my hands off the control stick when flying an airplane." I was born from being done.

The Santos Octagon is characterized by its octagonal bezel, as the name suggests, in addition to the design of each part of the airplane screw that triggered its birth.

This watch is a men's size called LM size at that time, but it is a little small size by the current standard of 29 mm without crown and 32 mm with crown.

It is a size that is just in the middle of being larger than the SM size of Santos Galve and smaller than the LM, and it is a size that is equivalent to the boys size in Rolex watches.

It is a size that can be used not only by men but also by women.

It may seem a little small when you look at the numbers alone, but with the octagonal shape and design, if the arm circumference is about 16 cm, it can be said that it is an appropriate size.

This watch is a self-winding model that existed in the 1980s, and unlike quartz (battery-powered), one of the features is that the second hand moves little by little.

As you can see in the picture, the biggest feature is the very gorgeous one with the case and bracelet made of 18K yellow gold.

The solid gold models, including Santos Garve, are rarely seen and are valuable watches in terms of their rarity.

The hole mark is also firmly engraved on the buckle part.

The impression is that it is gold, which has a strong presence but is not too disgusting due to its small size and vintage hue.

Also, the shape and cut of the crown stone are different from the normal Santos Octagon. It has a shape with a sharp tip.

You can see the difference in the two side-by-side photos, so please have a look. The

dial is a combination of a white dial, Roman indexes, blued steel hands and a classic design. The

bracelet also has a slightly angular and sharp design, with a vintage Cartier logo buckle.

Bracelets can handle up to 17 cm.

Case and bracelet have been finished with new products.

This item will be handed over after overhaul.
