Luxury Cartier Santos 100 Replica Watch Review

In my years reviewing Cartier timepieces, I’ve mostly chosen round watches. In fact, most people who buy watches choose ones with round cases. I say this because reviewing the Cartier Santos 100 Replica watch was a bit left-field for me.

One of the reasons that square watches typically don’t work on wrists is the inherent battle between the more organic curves on one’s wrist and the mathematical angularity of square Cheap Cartier Replica watches. Put these things together, and you often have a result that is not harmonious. This is important to think about because it means that a square or rectangular watch that looks good in a picture, might not be as flattering when put on your wrist. Round watches tend to fare much better when it comes to the “on-the-wrist test.”

The “jumbo” looking size of the Cartier Santos 100 Replica Watch is deceptive, as the case is only 38mm wide. With the crown, the steel case is 41.3mm wide by 51.1m tall, and just 10.34mm thick. That means the Cartier Santos 100 works on a variety of wrists large or small, and also has a bold appearance that a lot of watch lovers are looking for. If you recall, back in 2012, we offered a light review of another model in this collection with the Swiss Cartier Replica Watches with the aDLC-coated black case here. Really, the only difference is the colors and coating materials, and yet this more traditional-looking piece has a very different visual personality to it.

The square shape of the watch endured, and today continues its legacy in timepieces such as this. While the exposed screws should theoretically be “engineered out,” they have become a style and decorative element which I agree helps the overall composition of the Best Cartier Watches feel more masculine, as well as help remind you that it is indeed a machine on the wrist as opposed to a mere style or status symbol.

Going back to the appeal of the Luxury Cartier Watches case, when you put it on, you realize just how curved it is. The thick lugs gracefully arch down creating a shape that allows the case to sit comfortably on the wrist but also adds some of the necessary curvature to give the Cartier Santos 100 that “organic” look which combines harmoniously with your wrist. Moreover, even though the case is square, pretty much everything has rounded edges, from the case itself to the bezel. Sharp angles are there, but they are fewer and more deliberate than the curves. In fact, part of the genius of the design is in creating a very rounded square case and having most of the true angles appear on the dial.

Cheap Swiss Cartier Santos 100 Replica Watches

Cartier has been making ADLC watches for several years now, like the Santos 100 Carbon version in gold, but are releasing these more affordable non-gold pieces with their newer in-house movement. At the time of its release many fans were skeptical, but grew to love the Swiss Cartier Santos 100 Replica Watches and its durable attributes. Here was a Cartier you could maybe even wear to the gym without babying it or worrying about scratches. Cartier claims that the ADLC is superior to PVD coating, and the increased scratch-resistance and an amazingly hard surface are just a few of its benefits which also include increased shock-resistance. You might not equate these elements with your typical Best Cartier Watches, but here you have them in full force along with two renowned styles.

The Cartier Santos 100 Carbon comes as a “large model” in an ADLC-coated steel case measuring 51.1mm x 41.3mm. The other new release, the Ballon Bleu De Cartier Carbon is also housed in an ADLC-coated steel case that is 42mm wide. Each model features lume-treated sword hands so while you don’t get the classic Cheap Cartier Replica blue, you do get increased legibility. Water resistance is 3 bar, and both are topped off with sapphire crystals. As always, the crowns receive special treatment with the Cartier Ballon Bleu Carbon featuring the blue synthetic spinel cabochon and the Cartier Santos 100 Carbon with a blue faceted synthetic spinel.

Each watch is outfitted with the in-house calibre 1847 MC. The automatic 1847 MC features a 42-hour power reserve. The Cartier Santos 100 Carbon and the Cartier Replica Watches represent a shift forward in design attitude while amassing even more fans with their newly added in-house movements. I am hard-pressed to find a Cartier watch that I don’t appreciate in at least some way, and each of these models maintain their distinctive attributes while offering something new and fresh in the Cartier line.

Each piece is offered on a seductive black calf-skin strap featuring steel and ADLC buckles. These bolder-looking pieces might draw in a younger demographic.

Updated Cartier Santos Replica Watches Introduce New QuickSwitch & SmartLink Systems

Cartier unveils their updated Santos de Cartier Replica Collection. Gone is the simple square bezel, and included is a tapered, shapely bezel that extends to the lugs to give an elongated look without compromising the square shape of the dial. However, the real star of the show is what Cartier is calling their “QuickSwitch” and “SmartLink” bracelet systems.

The Santos de Cartier Collection comes in a variety of different flavors – a full steel set, a two-tone steel and gold, a full gold, and a pink gold set. Each case measures in at 39.8mm with a 9mm thickness. While some may say that’s a little thick for a dress Cheap Cartier Replica, I think the updated tapered corners will help this slide under a cuff nicely. The bezel keeps its familiar 8 screws, but fans of the brand will immediately notice the slight change in shape – instead of a solid square bezel, Cartier has tapered the corners to flow into the lugs, almost disguising the break in the bracelet and case and giving the watch some more sex-appeal, less sharp lines, and a nicely framed dial.

There are two dial variations to the Cartier Replica. The first is the traditional, slightly refined white dial with Roman numeral indices and a date at 6 o’ clock. This variation of the watch utilizes Cartier’s 1847 calibre. The second is skeletonized and utilizes Cartier’s 9611-MC calibre that “floats” inside of an oversized Roman numeral frame. This is my favorite of the bunch as I feel it embodies a lot of Cartier Replica Watches out-of-the-box design DNA. Because of the screw-down crown design, each watch carries a water resistance rating of up to 100m.

However, the real winners in this updated collection are the strap and bracelet options, with the “QuickSwitch” and “SmartLink” technology behind them. Cartier puts a lot of importance on their strap and bracelet system because it was such an integral part of the development of their first wristwatch. Because of that, Swiss Cartier Replica Watches designed these straps around comfort, ergonomics, and flexibility. They wanted the watch to have the ability to tailor to any situation – quickly and comfortably. So, for that reason, when someone purchases a Santos de Cartier, they will be presented with both a bracelet matching the case material and a leather strap.

The “SmartLink Self-Fitting” technology allows for a wearer to adjust the size of the bracelet, once again, without tools. Each link will have its own button that when pressed, will release from the link above it allowing for quick and easy sizing you can do on-the-go. In theory, this sounds cool though I can already hear the gripes about the screws being “purely decorative.”

Overall, the update to the Best Cartier Watches brings some modern adjustments to an arguably dated watch design. I feel that the new technology and strap options encompass Cartier’s balance of jewelry, fashion, and watches – and the harmony that can be met between them. We will update you with pricing as soon as we confirm with the brand.
