The new Santos-Dumont was unexpected and certainly one of the most intriguing iterations of the models to date, yet it easily feels like quintessential Cartier.Though the case is inspired by a vintage Santos with a lacquered bezel dating from the 1920s, the new Santos-Dumont still feels satisfyingly original. While brightly-coloured dials are now common for dress watches, the same cannot be said of the case. While I appreciate traditional Luxury Cartier Replica designs for their grace, such vintage-inspired pieces don’t offer much in terms of innovation or novelty.
Regardless of the size, it’s the lacquered inlays that make this special. Flush with the case such that it seems to be a thin painted layer, the lacquered decoration is actually an inlay.It’s done in a three-step process that starts with engraving the a Cheap Cartier Santos-Dumont Replica case to create recess for the lacquer. The narrow recesses are filled with synthetic lacquer and then baked in an oven to set, before being polished to create a smooth, flush surface. The last step is the application of a thin layer of clear, protective varnish over the lacquer, which is necessary as the lacquer is softer than steel.
The rest of the case is identical to that of the standard Santos-Dumont and finished simply but well enough to give the Best Replica Watches a sense of refinement that is certainly meets the requirements demanded by the price.Two elements stand out: one is the mirror-polished bevel along the edge of the case, while the other is the elaborate, studded crown capped with a cabochon that is classic Cartier style. But it serves a practical purpose as the studs improve grip and facilitate hand winding.
The classic Cartier dial is silvered and either grained or guilloche, but in recent years more finishes have become more varied and adventurous. Take for instance the latest Tank Must that has dial with a two-tone finish that’s the result of electrochemical texturing.In the same vein, the new Santos-Dumont Replica Watches China has an unconventional finish. It’s essentially a modern guilloche that’s made up of deeply grooved lines in a concentric cubic pattern, with the lines widely spaced so the aesthetic is entirely modern.
Upon closer examination, it becomes clear that dial is very different from traditional engine turning or even stamped guilloche. Though the lines appear to be printed in relief from some angles, they are actually deeply engraved. The rationale for the engraving finish lies in the fact that a negative stamping die necessary for such a deep pattern will probably create slightly distortion in the dial surface.
Finally, the movement within the Cartier Replica Watches Wholesale is the cal. 430 MC, the same calibre found in most hand-wind Cartier watches for men. It’s actually the extra-thin Piaget cal. 430P, a compact round movement that’s just 20.5 mm wide and 2.1 mm tall, making it suitable for form watches. For comparison, the de facto small hand-wind movement when it comes to ETA’s offerings, the Peseux 7001, is just over 23 mm in diameter and 2.5 mm thick.
On the other hand, Small models are the most affordable, but very small and the only size that’s quartz, while the Extra-Large case is very flat and wide and is available in all metals including steel.It makes sense for the platinum and gold versions of the lacquered Santos-Dumont to be in the compact Large case since it’s a more elegant size, but the steel-and-black model should arguably be Extra-Large given its more contemporary feel.
The steel 1:1 Replica Watches looks just right with formal wear, so I like it as it is, though I imagine a larger size would give it the versatility to be a casual, everyday watch.Regardless of the size, it’s the lacquered inlays that make this special. Flush with the case such that it seems to be a thin painted layer, the lacquered decoration is actually an inlay.
