For fans of Cartier who happen to be guys, this watch has been a long time coming. Don’t get me wrong, Cartier makes a host of men’s watches, however the Cartier replica watch is a piece that I could confidently say is a watch that can successfully broaden the brand’s appeal in a way that hasn’t been done for quite several time. The reason for this may very well lie in the fact that it offers a range of options from steel, to gold, to a flying model. That being said, it’s the steel version that is both the most affordable and has me the most excited.
On one side, you would have a stunning creation richly set with an abundance of precious stones. On the other, you would have a variety of watch movements, whose primary purpose was to tell the time. The pendant carries a 26-carat Ceylon sapphire, a transparent case-back completing the total symbiosis with the timepiece’s mechanical heart. They were not really part of the show, or merely a small part. In 2021 Cartier decided to multiply high jewelry with haute horlogerie. There are three versions of the Cartier Drive de Cartier watch. The base steel model comes in a white or black dial, both running on the 1904-PS MC movement. Time is suspended in space, leaving no hint as to how the feat has been achieved. The keystone of the show is nevertheless the Azure Tourbillon Mysterieux, a mysterious hours double tourbillon pendant inspired by a moth. The means are inscrutable: it must be magic. The mysterious movement is a reworking of a technique Cartier has continued to use in its table clocks, adapted now to the wrist and a natural adjunct to Cartier’s fantastical universe. This is the in-house Cartier automatic movement that operates at 4Hz and has the time with a subsidiary seconds dial and date. Animal representations that rely upon the brand’s iconic motifs, Art Deco-inspired geometric designs, color combinations that no other company could pull off – this ephemeral art gallery is wide-ranging and draws deeply from Cartier’s history.
The replica watches, a limited series of 30 individually numbered pieces, is fitted with a dark blue alligator strap, secured by a double adjustable folding buckle, set with 43 brilliant-cut diamonds.The automatic winding movement, calibre 049, powers the sword-shaped hour and minute hands. They are then assembled together in accordance with the motif concerned.
