The 9611 MC Cartier movement in the steel Santos De Cartier Skeleton super clone quality watch is based on the 96xx MC series movement. Just take a look at the 9602 MC and you’ll see that the keyless mechanism, gear train, jewels, screws, etc. are laid out exactly the same – although this particular movement has a large date function mounted on the dial side, the caseback looks exactly the same.
A curved front crystal doesn’t provide the best viewing experience. I find it twisted, or just not sharp from certain angles – not because of its curved shape, but because its overall quality isn’t as sharp as some other watches, for example, Grand Seikos do.
The closer the distance, the better the finishing. That’s because the first impression from afar is the mechanical look, with the industrial vibe created by the large brushed surfaces and grey wheels, gears and springs peeking from the inside. However, the angle is well done, even if it has an unmistakably machined look.
If these are done by hand then Cartier swiss grade 1 reproductions has to accept my apology – maybe invite us to visit the manufacturer and see how it’s done there…because if I follow the shiny lines along the edge of the plate, what I see is A CNC machine that runs along them – not a craftsman sitting there hand polishing those edges with gadgets.
It has to be said that even the very high-end products from some very high-end brands, the extremely powerful CNC machines that are becoming more ubiquitous in the industry, are already pre-finished – the edges just need to be touched up and polished. On ultra-high-end products, you can expect sharp interior corners where the two edges meet into a single point, as opposed to the round CNC corners seen on many watches.
Two rather interesting details about the way the Cartier Santos De Cartier Skeleton replica watches forum is decorated include the way the brushed surface – and the entire dial side – for that matter – reflects the color of the ambient light. Of course, this phenomenon isn’t a new one, but it’s worth mentioning how noticeable it is here; as you’ll see in the two images above.
Now, on to a more subjective issue: proportions and wearability. Maybe it’s just because I’m so in love with the smaller red gold Santos, but I find it hard not to see this larger model with its filigree dial and massive, bunker-like case mixed in.
The swiss replica watches usa feels heavy and flat, so while it sits nicely on the wrist, I’m baffled why Cartier didn’t swap the movement for the smaller steel Santos they’ve also introduced this year. From the movement, it is clearly a multifunctional and therefore small caliber.
See how close everything is. Cartier was smart about this so they could use this layout in a smaller watch, albeit with an adjusted bridge size. I think this fondness for such huge cases has been a bit stagnant in the past, with brands including Cartier 1:1 replica watch own haute horlogerie division making insanely complicated watches that are absolutely gigantic in size.
The new Santos collection impresses us with its high-quality cases, uncluttered finishes, and a wealth of creative and fascinating details – such as the integration of the bezel into the case, neatly following the contours of the case Curved and polished edges, as well as the new QuickSwitch and SmartLink systems, make it possible to change the strap and adjust the bracelet without tools.
“Large” in this case refers to a case that’s 39.8mm wide and 9.08mm thick – definitely over 50mm lug-to-lug, which is really a huge, or should I say “big” footprint. The hands are still petite – and I wish that Cartier luxury replica watch feature was a thing of the past – especially on watches with the word “big” in the name.
The 9611 MC movement has an impressive 70-hour power reserve, so I guess it should have the torque to carry a bigger hand too. I’ve long loved how Cartier incorporated tiny Cartier text into its fine print of Roman numerals – perhaps the logo would be better placed on the 7 or 8 o’clock index.
It’s a shoddy replica watches online shopping in terms of size, first impressions and overall design – but I think the filigree skeleton look is a better match for the new, popular small Santos model.
The movement was designed from the start and then over-skeletonized shows a lot of effort, but at least in my opinion, the creative department should have been more courageous in their choice of materials, sizes and colors. However, I think there will be more versions coming soon.
