In horological circles, one timepiece stands as an undisputed legend—the Cartier Santos de Cartier. Conceived in 1978, this horological marvel was Cartier's foray into captivating a younger audience enamored by the allure of sportier wristwatches. Cinematic immortality awaited the Santos as it graced the silver screen in the iconic movie "Wall Street." Worn by the legendary Gordon Gekko, portrayed with unparalleled charisma by Michael Douglas, the all-yellow gold iteration elevated the Santos to an even loftier status. Encased in a Cartier box adorned with a gold nameplate proclaiming "Santos Or Massif," the ensemble exuded an aura of sheer extravagance. The nomenclature "Or Massif," translating to "massive gold" in French, epitomizes the grandeur associated with these full yellow gold Santos models. Today, the Santos de Cartier stands not just as a watch but as a testament to Cartier's indomitable spirit, forever etched in the annals of horological history.

Overall, this full gold Santos is in excellent vintage condition. The case has just minor scratches and is overall sharp and retains its original bevels. The yellow gold case is thick and likely hasn't been polished much throughout its life. The case and bracelet has developed an attractive patina through oxidation. The gold bezel and the integrated bracelet has some minor scratches throughout but is in great condition considering the age of this watch. The original white lacquer dial has no cracks, which is rare to see for a vintage Santos dial. The dial itself is in very clean condition with no blemishes or discoloration. The blue steeled hands as well as the crown guards and blue sapphire cabochon is in excellent shape. The watch  comes with its original inner Cartier box with the gold "Santos Or Massif" nameplate, Cartier certificate of guarantee and instruction manual. The bracelet has its full links and can fit up to a wrist size of 17cm. The automatic movement was serviced by the previous owner in January 2022 and is currently running at +23.2 sec/day.
