Cartier Womens Santos Watch Review
The Cartier Women’s Santos stainless steel watch offers the contemporary woman classic style with a modern twist. Made of brushed stainless steel, this exquisitely detailed watch keeps premium time while being the perfect accessory for evening wear, it seems like it was made to be worn with that little black dress. If you are interested in buying this watch, I highly recommend you only buy from Amazon here. They are one of the few online certified Cartier Dealers.
A very clean watch design…
The band, made of straight links in a clean, streamlined style is studded with two tiny screws on either end of each link. The beautiful detailing extends to the square watch face, which is accented by a polished stainless steel border that also has eight delicate screws around the edges.
The shine of the steel casing is offset nicely by the white watch face bordered with black Roman numeral hour markers. Minutes are delineated with an attractive inner border of tiny squares underneath the hour numerals. The minute hand is a blue-tipped sword that extends over the minute squares directly to the Roman numerals, makes it easy to determine the exact time.
So comfortable it is easy to forget it’s there!
The best thing about this watch, however, is its comfortable and perfect fit. The watch case is curved, making it conform better to the natural curve of your wrist and helping the bracelet to fit snugly. The deployment clasp helps me to put on or take the watch off without having to ask my husband for help.
- What I like best about the Cartier Santos
- Simple and Clean Design
- Roman numeral digits – don’t see that very often anymore.
- Things I don’t like about it
- A little on the high end of the price spectrum
- Only water resistant to 30M. You shouldn’t be scuba diving with a $3000 watch on anyway!
All of this is capped off with an octagonal crown, with a gorgeous blue spinel in the center, large enough to make changing over to daylight savings time easier (and gives it that signature Cartier look). It’s water resistant up to ninety-nine feet and has a scratch resistant sapphire face cover, so you can relax while wearing it knowing that a spilled glass of champagne or an accidental brush against a table won’t ruin your luxury timepiece.
