Few modern watchmakers measure up to Cartier when it comes to century-old, yet evergreen, designs.Cartier Santos-Dumont XL Hand-Wind Replica watch collection, a range of three new watches, all with a Piaget-derived hand-wound movement, lowered prices, and now a steel variant.
Great watches in their own right, they all lacked some of the delicacy of the earliest Cartier Santos watches. The Santos-Dumont collection, with that notable “-Dumont” extension to its name, marks a distinctly different take that roves in the direction of those smaller Cartier Replica Watches For Sale with so much refinement to their proportions.
That trend continues in the Cartier Santos-Dumont XL Hand-Wind watches, which are available in three variations: 18k pink gold, two-tone with 18k pink gold and steel, and an all-steel variant. All termed “extra-large” by Cartier, they measure 46.6mm by 33.9mm and are an impressive 7.5mm-thick. That thin profile is attained through the use of an exceptionally thin, Piaget-derived Cheap Cartier Replica 430MC caliber that measures only 2.15mm-thick.
Given that only the very latest ultra-thin movements are capable of stretching power reserve, this older (but proven) 430P/430MC caliber offers a shorter 38-hour power reserve matched to a slower 21,600bph operating frequency.Introduced last year, these “large”Cartier Santos-Dumont Replica Watches have case dimensions of 43.5mm by 31.4mm and a thickness of 7.3mm.
Getting back to the The Cartier Santos-Dumont XL Hand-Wind collection, my only small gripe with these, as a watch-lover, is the fact that the crown is your only interaction and your only indicator of the presence of a hand-wound movement…A running seconds would be as much a sacrilege as a date window on this design, but an open caseback, even with just a small aperture somewhere, revealing the bridges covered with the Cartier Copy Watches For Discount“C” all over, would have been a nice little touch. A running seconds window or power reserve on the back really would have been next level — but also likely would’ve entailed an increase in price.
Cartier Mens Watches For Sale doesn’t appear to provide caseback images, so you’ll have to use your imagination to picture a solid caseback with some text on it.A design of outstanding elegance, powered by a slim mechanical movement and encapsulated in nicely executed cases. We wish all “iconic” designs showed progress like this.
