Cartier Santos Replica watches
When Cartier replica watches released the previous generation of “Santos 100” replica series in 2004, it was the centenary of the pioneer of replica watch design. I also measured the Santos 100 on a blogtowatch a few years ago, and I still love that watch. But let’s put the past aside. Today’s focus is on the new “Santos de Cartier” large model launched by replica Cartier in early 2022. Cartier replica hopes that the new Santos will be launched soon after its launch (such a move is rare in the watch industry), and its early sales feedback is quite gratifying. The Santos in this article is w2sa0006, with two colors (fine steel and 18K gold) and a large 39.8mm case (the smaller 35.1mm version is also available in the new Santos).
In this article, I will also show the comparison between the New Cartier Santos Replica watches and its predecessor, which is the uncommon limited edition Santos 100 w200728g. What’s special is that when most of the other Santos 100 models only have a leather strap, Cartier has a metal chain for it. I find the comparison between the two generations very interesting because you can see the similarities and differences clearly.
Let me first summarize the main features of Santos 2021: first of all, its case and chain are thinner (compared with the previous large-size watches, such as Santos 100 large), which will make some users feel more comfortable. The new book also introduces a new design of bezel. Although this is not a particularly significant change, it also gives the new book a unique visual style. The 2022 Santos replica watch is equipped with a self-made automatic winding movement, and the biggest highlights of the new work are the fast chain / strap replacement system (called “quickswitch” by Cartier) and the metal chain adjustment system “SmartLink” without tool assistance. Both are designed to allow users to quickly and easily adjust the watch chain (as long as you have nails) without using any tools.
Santos large model made a good impression on me. Some people think that smaller models are also suitable for men, but I’m sure most Santos 35.1mm models in the western market are sold to women. In addition to size, another major difference between the large and small Santos is the date window (the large one has it and the small one doesn’t).
Cartier replica completely changed Santos’ iconic square bezel in 2021. The new design is no longer square. Its upper and lower parts are slightly extended to visually connect the case and strap. In the previous generation Santos 100, the ear / chain was larger and wider than now. Both Santos have progressive watch chains that go from wide to narrow (which is good). The old Santos 100 is 23mm Wide at the link to the case, while the new Santos large is 21mm wide.
I’d like to spend more time talking about the replica watch chain, because it’s not only the main part of the new watch, but also a part worth focusing on. In my opinion, the watch chains of the two generations of Santos are comparable. In fact, Cartier has not really “replaced” the previous generation of replica Santos 100 with the new model (even though the old model has been discontinued technically). The brand just adds some new ideas to Santos series, and such new works have more opportunities to gain the first chance in the current complex luxury watch market competition.
Of course, the previous representative chain is not equipped with the 2018 version of quickswitch and SmartLink new systems. Cartier replica watch comes with a metal chain and a brown leather strap, which is very smart. Due to the patented connection system, users can’t buy the watch from the spare parts market. They can only buy the original strap from the official channel of the brand. Although Cartier’s accessories are expensive, their quality is quite reliable, so it is not a problem.
