In 1847, Cartier was founded in Paris by Louis-François Cartier, a master jeweller. However, it was his grandsons, Pierre, Louis and Jacques who would ultimately bring the brand to worldwide prominence, opening boutiques in Paris, London and New York.

The company began as a destination for luxury jewellery and timepieces. Now, it has flourished into one of the most highly regarded watchmakers in the world embodying style and sophistication. 

What's on Offer

A large watch with enviable prominence on the wrist, this classic Santos 100 from Cartier, the epitome of luxury brands, is in superb pre-owned condition.

The silver opaline dial looks beautiful with its oversized Roman numerals and oxidised steel sword-shaped hands with a luminescent coating. The dial is encapsulated underneath sapphire crystal and encased in stainless steel with a 7-sided Cabochon jewelled crown, which is quintessential Cartier. The corresponding steel bezel boasts the archetypal Cartier screw detail. The watch is supplied with its original Cartier alligator-skin strap in black with an XL triple folding steel buckle, all in great usable condition. This is an iconic reference from a brand synonymous with luxury and refinery, a statement piece, we love it!
