Beautiful Accident – Cartier Crash Series Replica Watches For Sale

The origin of Cartier’s most bizarre watch ever dates back to 1967. There are a couple of frightening, unconfirmed stories about the way the watch came to life, both of which took place in London. One is about a lady who brought her Baignoire watch in for repair, since it had been involved in a traffic accident where it got badly damaged. Another story is about a Cartier London manager, who was involved in a car accident that resulted in a fire. His watch – a large, curved Maxi Oval – melted from the heat exposure. The melted timepiece inspired Jean-Jacques Cartier, then head of Cartier London, to create a watch that was inevitably christened  the “Crash”.

Which of these stories, if either, is the correct one, we don’t know, but the latter sounds the more plausible, since the Maxi Oval, with its sharp case top – similar to the Cartier Crash series replica watches – could easily be melted to the distorted shape of the Crash watch. It is sometimes believed that the design of the watch was inspired by a painting of Salvador Dalí’s, but there is absolutely no evidence of that at all. On the contrary, it was Piaget that started work on a project with Salvador Dalí in 1967 that lasted almost till 1970.

Cartier London launched the timepiece as a men’s watch, in yellow-gold and white-gold (just three in white-gold, though) cases that measured 43mm by 23mm, and produced the watch in very limited numbers. Before Cartier Paris took over the production of the Crash (after the manufacturing of watches became centralised), two designers of Cartier London left the company and started their own brand, Churchill Watches.

The company was not that successful and did not survive long either. But their first release was interesting – a Churchill Crash  watch. Released in a 52mm-long white- or yellow-gold case cartier watches and powered by an ETA calibre, the watch was sold in the UK and USA. While the watch is often the subject of discussion, it was never sought after by collectors, nor did it ever fetch a decent price at auctions. It is still the Cartier London Crash watch that sets auctions  on fire, when, once in several years, a piece – preferably in white-gold with the magical word “London” on the dial – emerges and  is auctioned off.

Drive de Cartier Square Dial Fashional Men’s Replica Watches

With the recent release of the Drive de Cartier fake watches, the brand once again heads back to its roots: fitting active gentlemen with an elegant timepiece for the road.Believe it or not, Cartier actually has quite a rich history when it comes to driver’s watches, but has never been very outspoken about it.

The Drive de Cartier fits right in the middle of the sportive Roadster and the brand’s more classic vintage pieces. It’s stylish, it’s elegant, but when you change out of your Brioni suit and throw on that weekend cashmere sweater you don’t immediately feel the need to change your watch as well.

The cushion-shaped case of the Drive is a bit more rounded than one usually finds with this case shape. Combined with the domed sapphire crystal, it gives the Drive a real wrist presence that gets noticed.

The time-and-date version is powered by Cartier’s very own manufacture Caliber 1904-PS MC. Its dial is classic Cartier with stunning guilloche stamping, a railroad track, and slightly raised Roman numerals.

Cartier kept this dial very clean, even forgoing the usual word “automatic” printed on the dial. I would have loved to see the dial be even cleaner still – meaning without a date – but Cartier leather strap fake watches are one of those brands that, next to serving watch connoisseurs like us, also boasts a large clientele who wants a great timepiece for everyday use and feels that a date is essential.

The Drive de Cartier cheap fake watches are also available in a version powered by manufacture Caliber 1904-FU MC, meaning that it includes a large date, a retrograde display of second time zone, day/night indicator, and subsidiary seconds.These added complications really use the space that the dial offers well, lending it even more depth than the time-only version’s dial. Of course, the practicality of these complications will also be highly appreciated by Cartier’s cosmopolitan clientele.

The cherry on the top is the Drive de Cartier Flying Tourbillon.Part of Cartier’s Fine Watchmaking collection, it not only shows the symmetry that I think really gets the best out of this model, but also features a flying tourbillon. It is powered by manually wound Caliber 9452 MC, a certified Seal of Geneva movement.
