The Cartier Santos Dumont Collection is noted for its bold and masculine watches, and the Cartier Santos Dumont Large White Gold Mens W2007051 Watch does not disappoint. This white gold and leather piece beats out the competition with its simplicity and practicality.

This high-end timepiece comes with the following features:

  • 18 karat white gold case and adjustable buckle
  • Black alligator-skin leather strap
  • Manual wind movement
  • Scratch resistant sapphire crystal
  • Water resistant up to 30 meters (100 feet)

This Santos Dumont piece hides its glamour behind its simplicity. The face of the watch is lined with large and easy to read Roman numerals, making it ideal for men of all ages. The alligator-skin leather strap provides a comfortable fit around the wrist, while the white gold of the case makes this watch look sophisticated and smart. The water resistant feature is a nice touch, further adding to the practicality of the piece. This would be a good watch for an active man in need of a watch for his recreational life as well as his professional life.

The Santos Dumont Collection uses only the best materials in its watchmaking. Unfortunately, this makes each piece exceptionally pricey. This White Gold model is listed as $17,300.00 on Cartier’s American website. This price puts it out of range for the majority of buyers, which is a drawback for many who would appreciate the simplicity but cannot afford the glamour.

This is a no-nonsense timepiece, with few extra features to clutter the face of the watch. For those who can afford the steep price, this is a superb example of watchmaking. For everyone else, you might be better served to look elsewhere for a piece that offers the same simplicity at a more affordable price.
