Cartier Santos-Dumont XL Hand-Wind Replica Watches Now Also In Steel
March 28, 2020
Few modern watchmakers measure up to Cartier when it comes to century-old, yet evergreen, designs.The new-for-2020 Replica Cartier Santos-Dumont XL Hand-Wind 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 Replica 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 watches with so much refinement to their proportions.
18k pink gold, two-tone with 18k pink gold and steel, and an all-steel variant. All termed “extra-large” by Swiss Fake 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 Cartier 430MC caliber that measures only 2.15mm-thick.
The Cartier Replica Watch collection,the fact that the crown is your only interaction and your only indicator of the presence of a hand-wound movement… To be fair, there’s also “mécanique” written in small fonts on the caseback. 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 “C” all over, would have been a nice little touch.
