Cartier watches are known for their characteristic dial designs. The most eye-catching feature must be those black lacquered Roman numerals on a stark white or silver background. But that doesn’t mean the designers at Cartier don’t know how to incorporate color into their watches.Well, this year, Cartier gives the Santos and Santos-Dumont Replica models a colorful treatment.
I love how the model combines the signature square dial with a sporty case while remaining so very elegant. A lot of the time, color can take away some of that elegance, and it can make a watch look less serious. But that’s certainly not the case with the watches we’re looking at today. On the contrary, even, the touches of color on the new Santos and Santos-Dumont models take their elegance to a whole new level.
Santos de Cartier
Let’s start with the more sporty Cheap Replica Santos de Cartier, simply because that’s the one I’m more familiar with.First of all, there is its square case design and that very pronounced bezel on top. Then there are the seven-sided crown, the numerous screws all over the bezel, and the extremely comfortable bracelet. It’s almost like Cartier is screaming at you, “This is a tool watch!” But of course, Cartier isn’t because, when you look at the watch on your wrist, it’s such a nice combination between sportiness and elegance.
The Large version (39.8mm wide) of the Santos de Cartier was already available with a deep blue sunburst dial.In addition, versions of the Cartier Replica Watches with a green sunburst dial will also be available in both sizes. Both the blue and green dials are covered with a tinted lacquer, which is applied by hand. This makes the colors look very classy rather than too loud. Both sizes are powered by the 1847 MC automatic movement, a 23-jewel caliber with 4Hz frequency and a 42-hour power reserve.
The overall design of the Santos-Dumont is also one we already know very well. Last year, Cartier fake swiss watches launched the large Santos-Dumont in steel, rose gold, and platinum versions, each with a thin layer of black, cream, or red lacquer on top. This year, the colorful treatment is only applied to the Extra Large size (33.9mm wide) of the Santos-Dumont. But it’s not another layer of lacquer this time around.
The Santos-Dumont in rose gold is combined with green jade, while the platinum version is fitted with red jasper, and the yellow gold version has blue dumortierite Roman numerals. Of course, they all come on a matching alligator strap. The Replica watches China apple-style hands on this colorful series are powered by the hand-wound ultra-thin caliber 430 MC.
Cartier is releasing two new versions in that size in both two-tone (steel and gold) and full yellow gold. The first one features a sunburst gray dial, and the other has a sunburst dial in a very deep blue. Both tell you the time with beautifully polished gold hands that move over the matching gold Roman numerals.
I do really like the way they look, especially the ones with the colored Roman numerals and guilloché dials. It’s not as if Cartier Replica with 80% Discount simply added some color to existing references. The designers have put a lot of thought into the combination between the case material and the color of the numerals and the cabochon. As for the Santos de Cartier, I think the black-on-silver dial will always be my favorite. That said, I’m very much looking forward to trying on that green version.
