Santos de Cartier Replica Chronograph – Respecting the Innate Elegance of an Icon

Having given the Santos new wings in 2018, Cartier expands the bestselling men’s collection in 2019 with the addition of a chronograph. Thicker, wider and infinitely sportier, the new Santos de Cartier Chronograph has found an elegant solution to replace the classic two-pusher chronograph configuration with a modified version of its automatic 1904-CH MC calibre. Presented in three versions – solid 18k pink gold, steel and yellow gold bezel, and steel with a black ADLC bezel.

CASE

Instead of featuring the standard pair of chronograph pushers on the right side of the case, the Cartier Replica Watches features a discreet rectangular pusher on the left side of the case for the start/stop functions. Easily mistaken as a monopusher chronograph, the Santos is, in fact, a two-pusher chronograph with the reset function nestled inside the crown and activated by depressing the cabochon.

DIAL

Immediately recognisable as a Cartier Replica timepiece, the dial conveys all the elapsed time information in impeccable style. The square region of the dial has a brushed silver texture contrasting to the snailed and slightly recessed backgrounds of the 30-second and 12-hour registers, and the smaller subsidiary seconds and date function at 6 o’clock. Cartier has made a very good choice regarding the hands exchanging the traditional blued-steel hands for thicker, sword-shaped hands coated with plenty of lume.

Santos de Cartier Replica Large Model now with Gradient Blue Dial

Well designed, well equipped, well executed and relatively fair when it comes to the price, Cartier Replica gave this iconic shape a slightly sportier touch and some nice details, such as a clever strap/bracelet system. This model appears in the collection with a new dial.

The new Santos did not undergo a radical design revolution but was given a thorough update, more in line with modern expectations. The Swiss Cartier Replica Watches case, still square-shaped, with 8 screws on the bezel, was slightly reinforced to have more presence. The bracelet, part of the design of the watch, was also better integrated.

Presented in multiple versions, the flagship remains the Large Model with a classic white dial – the model we reviewed here. Deeply Cartier in style, considering the sporty approach, some thought it was a bit too shy and too discreet.

If the case and movement have not changed at all, the new dial adds a relevant touch of colour to this watch.Contrasting with the blue background are silvered Roman numerals and hands. Also, Cartier Swiss Fake Watches had a good idea to feature a black date disc.

One of the main updates of this new Santos de Cartier was the integration of a clever bracelet/strap device. The watches are all delivered with both a bracelet and a leather strap. Swiss Cartier Replica has fitted a quick release button on both the straps and bracelet, meaning that no tool is required to switch. The bracelet also comes with an ingenious system to adjust the length of the bracelet developed by Cartier and known as “SmartLinks”.

Case

Easily mistaken as a monopusher chronograph, the Santos is, in fact, a two-pusher chronograph with the reset function nestled inside the crown and activated by depressing the cabochon.

The first impression has to do with the size of the Santos de Cartier Chronograph, currently the biggest brother in the line-up of Santos watches. Touted as an ‘Extra Large’, the case measures 43.3mm x 51.4mm with a thickness of 12.5mm, but the gently curved lugs and integrated bracelet/strap attenuate its corpulence. The revisited case shape of 2018, with its softly rounded edges, sleek satin-brushed case and polished bezel and screws, conveys an immediate sense of luxury Cartier Replica Watches and you can feel the reassuring weight of the pink gold.

Dial

Immediately recognisable as a Cartier Luxury Swiss Fake Watches timepiece, the dial conveys all the elapsed time information in impeccable style. The square region of the dial has a brushed silver texture contrasting to the snailed and slightly recessed backgrounds of the 30-second and 12-hour registers, and the smaller subsidiary seconds and date function at 6 o’clock.

Movement

For many, the incorporation of calibre 1904-CH MC was the really exciting news about this watch and it is a shame that the caseback is closed. The same base movement as found in the 2012 Calibre de Cartier Chronograph and the Cartier Tank MC, for the Santos de Cartier Replicachronograph the movement has been modified to separate the chronograph pushers and place them on separate sides of the case.
