【Description】

1847年、ルイ・フランソワ=カルティエが宝石細工しとして工房をスタートさせたフランスのブランドで、腕時計の分野でも非常に歴史があります。

1904年に誕生し、以後カルティエの代表的な時計として挙げられるサントス ドゥ カルティエ。

ブラジル人飛行家、アルベルト・サントス=デュモンがカルティエの3代目ルイ・ジョゼ・カルティエに「飛行機を操縦している時に操縦桿から手を離さずに時間を確認できる時計が欲しい」と相談されたことから生まれた時計です。

このサントス オクタゴンは誕生の契機となった飛行機のビスを各部にあしらったデザインに加えて、その名の通りベゼルが八角形になっているのが特徴的です。

LMサイズは当時のメンズサイズですが、リューズガードを含めないと29mm、リューズガードを入れても31.5mmと、男性だけで無く女性もお使い頂ける大きさです。

タンクのLMサイズよりは大きく、サントスガルベのLMよりは小さい、というちょうど中間のサイズでロレックスではボーイズサイズにあたるサイズ感となっています。

この時計は90年代の電池式(クォーツ)タイプの時計で、自動巻きのものよりも時計が薄いため「付けている感」は殆ど無く、1日付けていても疲れを感じません。

ローマンインデックス、ブルースティールの針とクラシックなデザインで、ダイアルは微妙に凹凸のあるアイボリーカラーです。

光沢のあるホワイトと比べると落ち着いた印象で、よりヴィンテージ感が強いのはこちらかなと思います。

ブレスレットは現在16cm程度ですが、2コマ付属しており17cm程度まで対応可能です。

【Warranty】

2021年2月に電池交換済み。新品仕上げ済み。

1年保証付き。

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
