Cartier Santos Dumont Ref. 9606
Santos is the name. Elegance is the game.
A Cartier Santos Dumont with ultra-thin hand-wound Frederic Piguet Caliber 21. A movement introduced in 1925 that held the record for thinnest wrist watch caliber for decades. Measuring in at just 1,75mm thick, this is a marvel of mechanical engineering. Its potency shows when you realize it has been in production ever since its introduction nearly a century ago.
And the thinness really works wonders when you look at this case. It emphasizes the subtlety of the small Santos, which had its design based on another icon of France: the Eiffel tower. Speaking of France, this Cartier Santos is signed “Paris” rather than “Swiss”. This indicates the watch was originally sold at Cartier’s Parisian flagship boutique at Place Vendôme. A real bonus for seasoned collectors.
If it is the timeless, classical elegance of a Cartier watch you are after, combined with some serious horological significance in the form of a powerhouse of a movement, look no further than this 18k yellow gold Cartier Santos Dumont
