Ladies Review: Cartier Santos
While I love the men’s offerings from Cartier, I believe where the brand really shines is in its selection for women. The elegance and refinement that Cartier produces is a perfect pairing for the natural beauty of every woman. Perfect for the business suit, that black dress you feel so confident and sexy wearing, or the backyard barbeque the Cartier Women’s Santos stainless steel watch offers the contemporary woman a classic style that never goes out of fashion. The beautiful brushed stainless steel design, off-set by the brilliantly polished dial border is exquisitely detailed with Roman numerals and set screws. To save hundreds of dollars, if not thousands of dollars-see review below, on your new Cartier Santos. Always make sure that you are purchasing only from an authorized Cartier reseller.
The black Roman Numeral numerals are gleam on the white face and is surrounded by that highly polished border secured by eight tiny screws, and dissected by two tiny sword hands. You will notice the Roman numerals stick with the traditional watch making and us IIII in lieu of IV. The band is a simple polished stainless steel number with a tiny set screw at either side of each link. Delicate in appearance, but not in feel. Minutes are delineated with an attractive inner border of tiny squares underneath the hour numerals. Of course, the movement is Swiss Quartz precision.
Comfortable for everyday wear
One of the best features of the women’s watch is how comfortable it is to wear. My wife loves the way it wears and the compliments she receives when wearing it. It is so comfortable she almost never takes it off. 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.
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.
