The Cartier Santos Replica is back! At least, the modern version of the Santos, with a steel case and screwed bezel. However, the Santos was discontinued two years ago – and for a good cause.Meet the new Cartier Santos 2018, tested here in steel, large size and with quite some cool features for the strap/bracelet.
The new Cartier Santos combines hallmark traits with new features. The overall shape and style of the original are respected with a squared case with round edges, a polished bezel with eight screws, a steel bracelet with two screws on each link, a white dial with Roman numerals and classic Cartier Replica Watches blued hands. At first glance, the evolution seems minimal. Yet, when you look at this 2018 Cartier Santos in detail, you will spot the changes.
First, the case has been reshaped, with more curves. For instance, on each side of the bezel, it feels like the Santos now has two brancards. This is due to the new bezel, which is not perfectly squared anymore but shaped to “touch” the bracelet. This bezel now follows the lines of the case, yet it sticks to the polished finish to contrast with the rest of the Best Cartier Copy Watches Sale and still features eight screws. The case itself is also less aggressive than before, with more curved lines and the presence of a large, polished chamfer on the side. This gives the watch a more modern and luxurious feel.
Overall, the new Santos is quite pleasant on the wrist and is 9.08mm thick – not exactly an ultra-High Quality Cartier Replica Thin Watches China, yet good enough to fit under a cuff. The case is relatively large but the case back is slightly curved and the lugs are short, providing good comfort. Also keep in mind that a medium size exists, with a 35.1mm x 41.9mm case.
Other hallmark features of the Swiss Cartier Replica Watches Santos are also present. The crown with a sapphire cabochon, is still protected by a pointy protection piece. The bracelet is also in the vein of previous versions, with its brushed finish and the presence of screws on each link.
In my years reviewing Luxury Cartier Watches 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 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 Cartier Replica Watches more organic curves on one’s wrist and the mathematical angularity of square watches. Put these things together, and you often have a result that is not harmonious.
The “jumbo” looking size of the Cartier Santos 100 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 Luxury Cartier Santos 100 Replica Watch works on a variety of wrists large or small, and also has a bold appearance that a lot of watch lovers are looking for.
The square shape of the watch endured, and today continues its legacy in timepieces such as this. While the Cartier Replica exposed screws should theoretically be “engineered out,” they have become a style and decorative element which I agree helps the overall composition of the watch 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.
Cartier unveils their updated Santos de Best Cartier Watches 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 Swiss Cartier Replica Watches 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.
There are two dial variations to the Santos de Cartier. 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 Replica 9611-MC calibre that “floats” inside of an oversized Roman numeral frame.
However, the real winners in this updated collection are the strap and bracelet options, with the “QuickSwitch” and “SmartLink” technology behind them. Luxury Cartier Watches 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.
