Cartier Santos-Dumont XL Watch (Price, Pictures and Specifications)
The Cartier Santos-Dumont XL watch reveals a completely reworked design and proportions. Its history, the purity of its lines and the beauty of its mechanical movement with manual winding make it a watch for connoisseurs.
XL transformation of a timeless watch
With a contoured case, taut lines and unadorned elegance, the iconic design of the Santos-Dumont watch is enhanced in an extra-large size. In contrast to previous models, this one comes with a change of scale.
On the wrist the dial is wide, generous and taut – retaining a true focus on style and essential elements. The finesse of the case and the level of sophistication remain the same – from the sword- shaped hands to the beaded winding crown, from the sunray satin-finished dial to the case back engraved with the initials S=D, the signature of Alberto Santos-Dumont.
The 430 MC calibre: the choice of connoisseurs
In a play of tension between function and form, inside and out, Cartier watchmakers chose the 430 MC mechanical movement with manual winding, appreciated for its finesse and the nobility of the gesture it requires.
