Vintage, circa 1980s, men's stainless steel Cartier Santos Galbee watch, 18K yellow gold hobnail bezel, silver guilloche dial, stainless steel & 18K yellow gold link bracelet & double deployant closure, 26mm x 26mm, featuring automatic movement with date complication, expected usage wear, else fine. Of historical note, Alberto Santos-Dumont (1873-1932) was a Brazilian aviation pioneer, one of the very few people to have contributed significantly to the development of both lighter-than-air & heavier-than-air aircraft. In 1904, after Santos-Dumont complained to his friend Louis Cartier about the difficulty of checking his pocket watch during flight, Cartier created his first men's wristwatch, thus allowing Santos-Dumont to check his flight performance while keeping both hands on the controls, Cartier still markets a line of Santos-Dumont watches to this day
