    First Cartier Watch

    So my father just gave me his Santos. I know nothing about Cartier watches. All I know is that this is a Quartz and that it's Cartier LOL.
    Can someone give me some more info on this watch? Or how to figure out what year it was made maybe?

    The 1566 Santos Galbée dates back to the 90’s but continued through the 00’s, though you’d have to take the watch in to get an exact date based on the serial number.

    It’s SS and 18k Gold (two-tone), with a quartz movement though without opening it up, hard to tell which caliber is inside.

    Thank you for that INFO!

    The santos also carries a LOT of history with it. Quite apart from your specific model, I’d run a search for some YouTube videos that go over the history of the Santos. It’s fascinating!

    You can contact Cartier to get history, but my experience is they won't disclose ownership history. They seem to be too pompous, like a certain administrator on here. But, I have one of these, so you can PM me anytime. I've had mine for 20+ years and love it. Recently had to have the sapphire crown replaced due to stone being liberated. Difficult finding replacement crown, so watchmaker got creative.
