This watch needs no introduction. Memorialized in the 1987 movie Wall Street, the all yellow gold version was worn by Gordon Gekko played by Michael Douglas. The Santos was born in 1978 as a a result of Cartier’s decision to try to appeal to a younger crowd who leaned towards sportier watches. The Santos now is an icon and arguably the most famous Cartier timepiece in history. The reference 2960 is the full stainless steel version of the Santos de Cartier, also referred to as the Carree amongst Cartier enthusiasts. This is the LM size which is the men's size of the Santos de Cartier.

Overall, this piece is in fantastic vintage condition. Although the case, case bezel, and bracelet has many scratches, one can tell that this Santos was worn frequently by the previous owner with lots of love. The unpolished case and bracelet is still sharp and retains its original bevels. The white dial is a "swiss made" dial meaning that the dial was replaced by Cartier during one of its servicing. The original dial had a white lacquer dial which always developed a crack, and it is common to see a replacement dial on these vintage Cartier Carree's. The "swiss only" dials are made of a different material from the original dials and never crack. The dial on this example is free of any blemishes or discoloration and is clean overall. The blue steeled hands as well as the crown guards is in excellent shape. The blue sapphire cabochon has some cracks but nothing major. The automatic movement was last serviced in 2016 by the previous owner and is currently running at -31.2 sec/day. The watch comes with its outer/inner box, Cartier guarantee (unsigned) and instruction manual.
