An incredibly rare opportunity to pick up a beautiful early example of the iconic Cartier Santos Dumont. Produced in the 1970s, each watch was tailor made to order for the individual client. This watch has its original strap and deployant buckle which isn't common for these as the strap was non adjustable and made for the first owner's wrist size. The watch has benefited from a full service and is running strongly, ready to be enjoyed for many years to come.
We have included an additional adjustable hand made lizard skin strap (with conventional buckle) so that the watch can be worn if your wrist isn't 7.25inches!
