Earlier this year Cartier introduced a new watch for fashion

Le 25 novembre 2013, 10:23 dans Humeurs 1

Today, I had a drink with some watch friends and one of them was wearing this Cartier Santos 100 Carbon. Geo, the owner and moderator of the Cartier forum over at Revo-Online, handed over the watch and I was blown away by the stealth look of this otherwise ‘classic’ watch brand. The stainless steel case had a ADLC treatment, the bezel and crown have been made out of replica Cartier Santos and the folding buckle is also a combination of ADLC stainless steel and titanium. This watch comes with a black fabric strap which perfectly underlines the ‘stealth’ look of this Santos 100 Carbon.

Earlier this year, Cartier introduced a new watch for men, Calibre de Cartier. A few years ago, Cartier introduced the Santos 100 to fulfil the demand for a more masculine watch, the Calibre de Cartier is their next-gen masculine watch with in-house movement. And perhaps this new model does the trick even better!

I tried on the Calibre de Cartier during one of their events and I must say that i was quite impressed by the look and feel of this watch and perhaps just as important, the price tag. A list price of just below 5K Euro makes this watch an interesting competitor for the ‘usual suspects’ as a stainless steel replica Hublot Red Devil Bang. However, what does it mean to be a Cartier man? Will it still be a design statement? Or will people hold you for someone who wants to make a (design) statement but has no love for watches? Cartier is easily matched to jewellery and quartz watches for women, at least by the ignorant.

I think that Cartier did a great job on the introduction of the Santos 100. Not to everyone’s liking, but at least it was a masculine watch that you could be seen with. I think this watch actually helped people getting over the idea that Cartier is a brand dedicated to women’s jewellery and wrists. Now, the Calibre de Cartier, as you can see in the replica tag heuer, is a watch dedicated for the men who love mechanics and great design. One way or another, the case has some resemblance of a Cartier because of the solid lugs and bulky crown guard, but it could perfectly be that this is just me.

The mechanics inside the Calibre the Cartier is the all new developed caliber 1904 MC. A simple yet effective automatic winding movement, with hours, minutes, (small) seconds and a date feature. A number of brands decided to develop their own movements again, and with CAD technology and smart sourced knowledge they are at least able to do so (again). I assume that Cartier will be using the 1904 MC movement as a base calibre for future mechanical movement with complications and as their default movement for other watches in their line-up as well.

The dial, case, crown guard, crown (with cabochon crystal) and alligator strap are finished to the highest standards. Very Cartier-ish is also the dial lay-out, with roman numerals on the upper half of the dial and ‘stick’ hour markers on the lower half of the dial. The minuterie is also done very nicely and the Swiss Made printing and two L’s to indicate the use of Luminova doesn’t disturb it at all. The only thing I am not particularly fond about is the date window showing 3 dates, as we also can see on the IWC Flieger Chronograph models for example.

Last but certainly not least Cartier watches for my short overview

The hand-wound movement of the Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Double Tourbillon is caliber 9454 MC and consist of 242 parts. All housed in a 45mm platinum case. As you can see, a very elegant timepiece despite its large diameter. The thing that worried me a bit was the fact that you can look right through the watch and see your wrist underneath replica Cartier Ballon. However, when trying it on my wrist it didn’t bother me at all. Somehow the focus is on the floating tourbillon anyway, not on your flesh.

Another interesting Fine Watchmaking piece with a tourbillon complication is the Ballon Bleu de Cartier Flying Tourbillon 2nd time zone. Based on the famous round case Ballon Bleu collection, this Fine Watchmaking piece houses a Flying Tourbillon as well as a jump hour 2nd time zone indicator. The regulator dial is there so you can read the hands (also in the 2nd time zone) at all times. The lay-out of the regulator dial is somewhat different than I’m used to (referring to the Chronoswiss Regulator Automatique, the first wrist watch with a regulator dial) but it is beautifully done. The Cartier caliber 9456MC hand-wound movement replica Cartier Jewellery Watches of 304 parts and is housed in a whopping 46. 4mm gold case. This timepiece is available in 18 carat pink gold as well as in 18 carat white gold.

Last but certainly not least for my short overview is a watch from the Cartier d’Art collection. I love the hand carved cameo Crocodile formed from stone in this Rotonde timepiece. This white gold timepiece with a Flying Tourbillon hand-wound movement has caliber 9452 MC and has a modest 42mm case. This watch is limited to 30 pieces replica Breitling Chronomat Evolution.

The craftsmanship on the Crocodile is just stunning and pictures won’t do any justice to this marvelous piece.
