Just as RJ ended my debate with respect for Mr. and Mrs. Santos, I will also start my debate with respect for DATEJUST. It has been in Rolex replica catalog for a long time, and the brand can modernize while maintaining its original charm. Its Jubilee bracelet is a true classic bracelet and indeed one of the best and most comfortable bracelets ever designed, especially with a hidden buckle. Although I fully agree that the Rolex internal 3135 movement is superior to the Cartier Santos Galbée XL Replica Watches internal ETA movement, I still want to say that the mother of all modern watches is Santos, not DATEJUST.
You may already know this story, so I won’t take up too much space here, but the inspiration of Cartier Santos Galbée XL Replica Watch comes from one of the earliest replica watches made, Cartier Santos Dumont in 1904. It was designed for Luis Cartier’s friend Alberto Santos Dumont, who was one of the first pilots. He hoped to know the time without removing his hand from the control device during flight, so the first watch was born. Over the years, Cartier Santos replica has many different versions, but the square frame on this bracelet is my favorite.
The mother of modern watches is square!
This bracelet may not be as clear as a Rolex replica Jubilee watch, but it is still one of the most comfortable bracelets in my collection. When it comes to the hidden buckle, there is not even a logo that interrupts its design at any time. When people try on my Santos, they even ask how to open the bracelet and where to open it. This is what I call hiding! Its curved connection perfectly matches the curved design of the square housing. Combined with the unique Roman numerals on the dial, I really think this is a landmark design.
In fact, I expected it to be so iconic that I wanted to save it for a special occasion. To be honest, I don’t think I will wear this watch on any particular day, but for some reason, its design works under any circumstances. Roman numerals make it fashionable enough for more formal occasions, and all steel watch cases and bracelets make it sporty enough for leisure days. Of course, you can say the same about the date, but I think the square Santos is a more primitive choice.
Elegant and effortless
And, most importantly, it’s a more elegant choice, especially compared to the bulky updated lugs of 116234. In addition, Rolex designers can try to provide dates with any change in Roman numerals they want, but I still think they should be left to Cartier Santos Galbée XL Replica Watch is doing better! I must admit that platinum bezels like DATEJUST are very beautiful, but nothing can match the screws on Santos bezels and bracelets. In terms of alignment, they are everywhere, but for me, this imperfection adds to the elegance of France. The date is perfect.
A flaw in the eyes of some people may be the magnifying glass of DATEJUST. I must admit that I like it very much. This is the feature of Rolex and DATEJUST. It is certainly better than the very careless date window on my Santos shoes. But I would regard it as another strange French shortcoming. When I was wearing Santos shoes, I didn’t notice it, but of course I could not use it.
So, who will you vote for in the showdown this Sunday morning? Will you choose RJ’s perfect Rolex DATEJUST 116234 or Cartier Santos Galbée XL Replica Watches? We’d love to hear why you voted for one of them in the comments below!
