Interesting Santos 100, but......

Aug 01, 2019,23:01 PM

Yesterday I saw this Santos offered at a second hand internet dealer.

Really good looking Santos 100 with red numerals, that I have never seen before.
The seller describes the watch as a Collection Privé, Cartier Paris item and shows the piece
together with the CPCP box.
But I doubt if this dial was not made up for this watch, and it could also be a custom made piece.
The size and case material are not communicated, what I find a bit fishy, to me  it looks like a medium model.
Has anyone of you seen this red version before?

Collection Privé...

Have offered low production pieces in the past. Most are based on existing watches but with different colours or set with diamonds or other precious stones. Verify the case number and style with Cartier.

I think the dial is correct. A similar watch was for sale at Phiilips recently :

Phillips reports that only 2 were made with a red dial specially for the Paris Cartier Boutique. ...  

Thank you, that's interesting info

I totally missed this piece. GEO

Have seen original santos in PT with that dial and red cabochon with papers serviced by Cartier so that wud have been authentic. IIRC it was made in very Ltd

edition for the Japanese mkt. but this was way before CPCP. This one seems bigger thicker iteration with newer hands. Can’t say if CPCP had re-introduced it. I have seen CPCP with red detailing on tank basculante though. Hope this info helps.

A beauty I could see in the flesh...
