A friend of mine gave me this Santos 100 which he had worn few months and after which he had put it back in the box and left it in a drawer for many years.

The cushion of the box had melted into the bracelet which was dried out.

The case has many small scratches

A great gift but this is the first and last time you’ll see like this

I’ve dropped it at Cartier for full service polishing and new strap and will post it one I get it back

congrats on your new addition.. the condition looks a ok.. 😉

it will for sure looks like new after the overhaul. Well worth. Can’t wait for the “after” photos. You having the metal bracelet too? This watch looks amazing with the bracelet IMHO. 


Looks pretty good to me! [nt]

The title of your post mentioned a trade. Did you trade something for it or did he just give it to you? Nice watch, will look great after the service. [nt]

Ladies golf clubs

 By: Jurry : July 1st, 2019-23:43
The trade was a set of ladies golf clubs

The rationale behind was that the clubs were gathering dust in our garage the watch was gathering dust in his drawer

We are best friends and decided trading was the best way to have watch and clubs being used again instead of gathering dust

The dollar value was not a factor. We know each other to well for that. And I wouldn’t dream off selling that watch

Nice trade, you came out ahead, but in the friendship arena you both won. [nt]
