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 Cartier Replica Watches, steel and yellow gold bezel, and steel with a black ADLC bezel.
Instead of featuring the standard pair of chronograph pushers on the right side of the case, the Swiss Cartier Replica Santos Chronograph 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.
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.
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.
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.
