This is a rare Guilloche face as well, they do not make the Santos with it anymore, and looks incredible. I will ship insured and polish it up!

OK I will be the one that says it. You are asking for way too much for this watch...
I recommend that you do some market research into what two tone cartier santos' are going for these days

I think you'd see a lot more activity with a sharp price reduction. But either way, good luck with sale. I'll pay attention to see what you decide to do.

He's not hating on the fact that he hasn't sold it or the fact that no one is interested. He did say "OBO" in the last post. Please, PM the seller and express your opinion of current market value and your offer. If he starts whining in open forum about low ball offers, etc, then I'd e the first to openly criticize.

The watch is priced very fairly, and has only been worn a dozen times if even that. This same exact watch in stores today is wait listed, and selling for $8,000. So I believe the price is very fair, and my obo still stands (although the $1,000 offer did make me laugh :P ). I have consulted with my mother (a Cartier expert), as well as other sales associates about this watch.
My model is a limited edition, guilloche face, with gold numerals which you cannot find now (they are all black standard print), so its a great collectors piece. One must remember this is NOT the original santos of the late 80s/90s, it is the re-released version which came about after it was retired once. Today in stores, any watch you want to touch that is a steel and gold starts at a minimum of $7,500. Also keep in mind, I am a a watch collector, as well as a Cartier fanatic! My watch comes with papers, boxes, everything that many do not when you purchase form ebay. These watches from ebay also bare the risk of being tampered with, you do not know the service history, as well as the inner mechanics of the watch (has it been damaged, serviced, broken crystal etc).
I am not desperate to sell, but it would be nice to part with it so that it may be enjoyed by someone who will appreciate it for a fraction of the cost new. Any questions feel free to PM me, I'd love to talk watches Thanks all!
