The Best-Looking Cartier Santos-Dumont Replica Is Also The Most Affordable

Prefer the Tank Louis Cartier or the Santos-Dumont

The Tank and Santos-Dumont are the pillars of the Cartier Replica timepiece collection. These two watches not only kickstarted Cartier’s watch empire but have also been retained within the collection for eternity, albeit with new variations introduced from time to time ranging from dress to sport.

Cartier Santos-Dumont 1904 To 2018, the Santos-Dumont was created in 1904 but only introduced to the public in 1911. Since then, this model has been produced in fairly small editions, usually in platinum with a leather strap and deployant buckle. But also in yellow and even white gold, though those are fairly rare.

Santos-Dumont the first time that Cartier released a watch

With its new dimensions, the Swiss Cartier Santos-Dumont Replica is larger than Collection Privée Cartier Paris version.

Previous models had a relatively small crown, which made it sometimes hard to wind the watch and set the time. Cartier chose a larger crown for this new model that again reminds me of early versions. These details make this new Santos-Dumont a real homage to the historical model.

Bigger and wider, a better grip is the result. Pulling the crown out and adjusting the hands is very comfortable, although that doesn’t need to be done much anymore thanks to the quartz caliber now powering the time display.

The historical lines of the classic Santos-Dumont case are retained in a beautiful way, with the Cartier Replica Watches case back held by four screws fitting seamlessly into the slim steel case.

Cartier Tank MC Replica in pink gold

Cartier presented a Tank equipped with its in-house calibre 1904 MC-PS automatic movement. The new Swiss Cartier Tank MC Replica– for “Manufacture Cartier” – features similar styling to the Tank Americaine, but with a wider, more squarish case.

The Tank MC Replica Watch features a date window and a sub-seconds at six o’clock; the “PS” in 1904 MC-PS stands for “petite seconde“.The 1904 MC has a 48 hour power reserve thanks to twin barrels, as well as a highly efficient bidirectional “Magic Lever” winding mechanism.

Available in steel or rose gold, the Cartier Replica case measures 44 mm by 34.3 mm, with a height of 9.5 mm, giving it wrist presence without being overly large. It has an open case back revealing the 1904 MC movement.

Several dial versions will be available – silver or black for the steel, and silver or chocolate for the rose gold. Both dials are in the typical Fake Cartier style, with a guilloche centre and sword hands. The fact that the date disc is a matching black shade on the steel model is a welcome touch.

Cartier Replica Tank MC Watch Review

One of the main differences between the Tank and Tank MC watches is the display of the bottom cover. Cartier Copy watches without an internal movement do not have a sapphire crystal case back. Part of the charm of having a mechanical watch is the ability to see the movement through the window at the rear of the chassis.

The specific movement inside the Cartier Tank MC Luxury Replica watch is the 1904-PS MC movement. This automatic movement operates at 4 Hz, including the time of the secondary seconds and the date. Its dial layout is more interesting than most traditional three-handed Tank watches, but one might think that the layout is not so elegant. The dial features a full-size Cartier-style Roman numeral hour indicator and a thin sword-shaped pointer.

Most rectangular-cased watches simply aren’t going to look as large on the wrist as most round-shaped cases. At 34.3mm wide by 44mm tall the Best Cartier Watches does not come across as a large watch on paper. Nevertheless, it wears comfortably as a dress watch, with a lot of classic Cartier character.

The Cartier Tank MC watch has a flat caseback, but a curved top which appears to wrap around your wrist. Even though the various Tank watches all have a lot of visual similarity, Cartier Replica Watches makes sure that each of the variations offers something unique.
