Pink represents romance, sweetness, gentleness and innocence, showing feminine and cute style, and is more representative of the young girl’s unique feelings. However, pink is such a kind of color that is very challenging for girl for it is not easy to match with other accessories to form its own unique style. Then, Will this luxury Ballon Bleu de Cartier fake with pink tone evoke the beautiful memory of your girlhood?
Cartier imitation with stainless steel case features a distinctive pink dial, which seems natural and decent, not as heavy as other general pink dials, showing a charming look of elegant and pure style. Cartier never decorates its products with grandiloquent and superb elements. Adorned with blue sword-shaped hands and transferred Roman numerals hour markers, the model guarantees the optimum legibility.
The copy watch with pink leather strap has been equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement. With polished finish, the case of the watch looks more smooth and charming just like the skin of the young girl. The solid case back with satin brushed finish guarantees the greater resistance of scratch. The pink leather strap fits the stainless steel case well, meanwhile, matching the pink dial excellently.
The shaped watch (anything that isn’t round) is a Cartier replica watch innovation that is as much a part of its creative heritage as the panther motif, or for that matter, the wristwatch itself – the first wristwatch on record, the Cartier Santos, was square. In 2015, the brand began to revisit its shaped watches, starting with a platinum skeletonized version of the Crash watch, followed a year later with a pink gold version. Last year, it resurrected the square-shaped Panther – which had been discontinued in the early 2000s – introducing a full collection with a new movement and a slightly revamped bracelet. In January at SIHH, Cartier revisits the Crash again with a new model, and introduces four new pieces in the Baignoire series of mostly oval cases. The new models are all part of the Libre collection. All but the new Crash contain quartz movements.
The Cartier Crash fake watches were introduced in 1967, inspired by the remnants of a client’s Baignoire Allongé watch that had been mangled in a fiery car crash. The watch was an interpretation of the surrealist art popular at the time. It was revisited in the early 1990s and again in 2013 as a ladies’ collection. In 2015, it was given haute horlogerie status as the Crash Skeleton, with an openworked manufacture movement designed to fit the distorted case shape. The new Crash Radieuse takes the Crash to the next level, with a seemingly crumpled case and dial, with barely-visible stretched Roman numerals. The case is yellow gold and it contains the manually-wound caliber 8970 MC. It is a numbered limited edition of 50 pieces.
The Baignoire Débordante is designed as a starburst, with openworked white gold spikes emanating from the center of the oval dial. The stems are set front and back with diamonds and black spinels, with the spinels focused at the top and bottom ends. The watch, a limited edition of 50 pieces, contains a quartz movement.
The Baignoire Infinie is a four-layer composition of concentric rings radiating out from the center dial. The rings are set randomly with baguette diamonds, white mother-of-pearl, black Tahitian mother-of-pearl, and black spinel. The circle appears to be cut off at the sides. The movement is quartz and it is limited to 20 pieces.
The Baignoire Étoilée is a jeweled watch with a delicate bracelet composed of small round and square-cut gems randomly set in an openworked link structure. The upended square shape of the gems is repeated as a pattern on the dial of the east-west oval case, which is set with a double of row of white diamonds on top and a double row of black spinels below. The 18k white gold bracelet is set with diamonds and black spinels. The movement is quartz and it is limited to 15 pieces.
The Baignoire Interdite is all about Cartier’s copy watches signature Roman numerals, which crisscross the east-west oval dial. They are coated in black ADLC for dramatic contrast with the white dial. The bezel is set with white diamonds. The movement is quartz and it is limited to 50 pieces.
The Cartier Tank series replica watches have existed in a truly bewildering range of variations and sub-variations over the years since it was first introduced in 1917, and yet surprisingly enough almost none of those variants make use of skeletonized, or openworked, movements. Cartier certainly has sold an enormous number of openworked pocket and wristwatches over the years, but it was not until the introduction of the Tank Louis Cartier Noctambule (part of the Collection Privée Cartier Paris collection) in 2004 that an openworked Tank appeared. This was followed by the Tank MC Skeleton, in 2013, and then the Tank LC Sapphire Skeleton in 2014, which was widely critically praised and generally regarded as a very successful outing ( it was joined that year by a skeletonized version of the iconic Crash, which likewise became a critic’s darling though of course, that model isn’t a Tank). For the 100th anniversary of the Tank, quite a few new models have been introduced, and for the occasion we have the very first ever, skeletonized version of the Tank Cintrée, an early variant of the Tank that was first sold by Cartier all the way back in 1921.
The Cartier Tank Cintrée fake watches have appeared in several different variations over the years, but its very dramatically elongated case (“cintrée” means bent, or curved) has never before held an openworked caliber, and the reason why is probably that in order to get a pleasing effect, you really do need a rectangular movement that fits the case well, and which follows the curvature of the case. In earlier models you would have probably found either a round movement or a standard-issue rectangular or tonneau movement drawn from a movement supplier’s existing inventory; such an extreme movement shape would not have been part of any movement supplier’s standard catalogue and would have been expensive to produce for a single watch – maybe prohibitively so. However, the new Tank Cintrée Skeleton has a movement specifically intended for the purpose, with much more satisfying results than would have been possible with a supplied caliber.
In the original versions of the Cintrée from the 1920s there were several different movement diameters used, which corresponded to relatively longer or shorter models (across the longest case dimensions) with 7, 8, and 9 ligne movements (the ligne is a traditional watchmaking unit of measure; 1 ligne is equal to about 2.2558mm and the unit is still alive in modern watchmaking, as well as in, of all things, button and ribbon-making). The vintage Cintrée models had a very distinctive minutes track.
The minutes track is basically a modified rectangle and as you can see, the movement created for the openworked Cintrée – caliber 9917 MC machinal movement copy Cartier watches– uses that minute track as the structural basis for the hand-wound movement.
SIHH 2018 is just months away, but we are already hearing about some of the new watches that will be released. Today, we have a pair of Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Mysterious watches – the Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Day & Night and the Rotonde de Cartier Skeleton Mysterious Double Tourbillon.
The idea for these Cartier replica Mysterious Watches actually comes from the Mystery Clocks that Cartier made way back in the early 20th century. These clocks were notable because [SPOILER ALERT] their hands were fixed onto clear discs driven by gears just out of view, creating the impression that they were floating on the dial. This iconic look has been adapted for a number of Cartier’s watches and they make for interesting viewing.
The Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Day & Night limited edition replica watches are available in a 40mm 18k pink gold or white gold case. Cartier fans will be pleased to know it also comes with the brand’s signature blue sapphire cabochon crown. Water resistance is rated at 30m.
The dial is divided into two halves. The top half features a day & night complication and also shows the hours in the form of a 12-hour scale that reads from six to six. In the day, a sun will appear on the dial and make its way from left to right. The hours are read simply by looking at the position of the sun in relation to the 12-hour scale. When it is night, a moon will appear and likewise will make its 12-hour journey from left to right. The bottom half of the dial features a radiating guilloché pattern in the center and a retrograde minutes display.
Last year at SIHH, Cartier made waves with the debut of the men’s Drive de Cartier collection that featured an all-new cushion-shaped case that has really seemed to resonate with longtime fans. This year, Cartier has added two new models with the Cartier Drive de Cartier Moon Phases watch and the Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat. Initial impressions here are that the Drive de Cartier Moon Phases presents a sufficiently pleasant, yet somewhat obvious option in steel or gold that adds variety to the collection and differentiates itself enough that it will be just right for some, and for others may simply elicit a “why not?” The Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat, however, looks sleek and sexy. In a way, I feel like the Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat realizes what the Drive de Cartier line should be all along. The catch? It’s only available in white or rose gold.
The Drive de Cartier Moon Phases replica watches maintains the 40mm x 41mm cushion-shaped case and is crafted either from steel (shown here) or 18k pink gold. On the latter, the octagonal crown is likewise made from 18k pink gold and both models are topped with sapphire. Two blued-steel hands glide across the guilloche dial with the classic Roman numerals. At 6 o’clock, you’ve got the moon phases sub-dial, and I can already tell the addition of the text reading “AUTOMATIC” is going to (ahem) “drive” some people nuts. In most likelihood, it’s there because Cartier didn’t want too a sudden break from the minute markers on the inner dial and because a lack of a seconds hand is common to quartz pieces. The white gap would look pretty stark, but it’s the only watch in the line that has the addition of this text, and all the models in the line contain automatic movements. Maybe the aesthetic choice just outweighs anything else.
The Drive de Cartier Moon Phases leather strap replica watches feature the complication that accounts for the cycles of the moon and is described as “astronomic” due to the fact that it only needs to be adjusted for one day every 125 years – so save the manual for your grandchildren. The Drive de Cartier Moon Phases features the maison’s new automatic winding 1904-LU MC which operates at 28,800Hz and has a 48-hour power reserve.
Now, the Cartier Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat watch measures in at a mere 6.6mm, which is more than 40% thinner than last year’s 2016 models. This lithe offering exudes elegance and sports a sunray satin-finished dial in place of Cartier’s beloved guilloche. The Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat case is also a bit smaller at 38mm x 39mm, and it has a 30m water-resistance rating. The piece is powered by the manually wound 430 MC and will be available in both white and pink gold. The 430MC caliber is based on the Piaget 430P, which is appropriate given Piaget’s reputation for slimness. The Cartier 430MC operates at 21,600vph and provides an, honestly, disappointing 36-hour power reserve. Again, no seconds here either, but the dial is largely untouched.
Cartier copy watches know they are going to bug some folks with the fact that a steel model of the Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat isn’t available (at least, for now), but it’s promising that entering the second year since its inception, the Drive de Cartier line is being refined. We reviewed a gold “small complication” model that had a busy dial and polarized people. I have a feeling that the Drive de Cartier Moon Phases might get the same reception but the Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat is just a slick, subtle stunner that makes me want an invite to a black-tie affair immediately.
I’ve always had a major soft spot for Cartier replica watches for sale, especially high-end ones. The particular blend of technique, design, and a traditionally Parisian take on luxury makes them feel both conservative and full of personality. The Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Hour Skeleton is a good example of what to look for when you want a Cartier that is much fancier than the ones most people have, but not so exotic as to make it challenging to wear on a regular basis.
Cartier recently announced that their Haute Horlogerie division would significantly slow down production – as I understand it will focus instead on more practical, accessible (i.e. simple and less complicated) high-end watches. Exotic tourbillons and highly technical and original movements which the brand has received many accolades for will be increasingly uncommon as the brand transitions to mostly service existing fake watches for men and producing a smaller number of very exclusive watches that I believe will focus more on decoration than a novel movement or mechanism.
That leads me to believe that for the most part, outside of “piece unique” creations for special customers, watches like the Rotonde de Cartier Mysterious Hour Skeleton copy watches might very well represent the top-of-the-line products Cartier makes for men. The watch is actually a combination of three existing items at Cartier, and that includes the Rotonde-style case, “mysterious” movement which has the hour and minute hands on a transparent plane, and on top of that, skeletonization of the in-house made caliber 9981 (which then becomes the caliber 9983) manually wound movement.
We’ve substantially seen all this before, and this watch more or less represents Cartier wanting to make the most out of its movements by offering them in a variety of cases. For instance, if you love the Mysterious Hour Skeleton but prefer the Cartier Cle case, they have a watch for you in the Cle de Cartier Mysterious Hour watch.
Such designs have a long history going back to early 20th century table clocks produced by Cartier. At the time, it was en vogue for some brands (Cartier included) to produce mystery dial clocks. Many of these Art Deco style creations celebrated the intriguing optical illusion created when the hands were not mounted to the dial via a stem as is the case in a traditional watch, but rather mounted on a transparent plate, which itself features hidden gearing used to move it around the dial.
Of all complications, the minute repeater remains one of the most coveted. It is so complicated to make that it will always remain a rarity. While tourbillons have enjoyed increasing popularity, also because it is available at a much lower price point, the minute repeater remains a precious expression of the art of us.
A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk Minute Repeater.
Places in a platinum case, the A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk Minute Repeater is a master piece in every way. One of the most complicated things in every watch is the regulation of power, as there often is simply not enough of it. This Zeitwerk not only sported large jumping hours and minuted but also a minute repeater, making it an example of micro mechanical ingenuity!
Blancpain Carrousel Minute Repeater
Blancpain is another brand that is not content with making “just” a minute repeater. They combine it with a flying, one-minute carrousel, a device that minimizes the effect of gravity on the precision of the watch, somewhat similar to a tourbillon. That is not all because the minute repeater is also equipped with cathedral chimes, giving it three gongs instead of the two that are the standard.
Rotonde De Cartier Minute Repeater Flying Tourbillon
Cartier also combines their minute repeater in the Rotonde de Cartier replica watches with another complication, in this case a flying tourbillon. With the hammers prominently visible on the dial side, it leaves little to the imagination with what complication this watch is fitted. The blue guilloche dial adds further to the captivating qualities of this watch.The back of the watch further reveals how complicated it is to create such a watch, giving you an insight into the mesmerizing inner workings of this grande complication!
Inspired by the newly invented armoured vehicles of the First World War, the Cartier Tank fake watches premiered in 1917 and has been in production since, making it once of the longest lived wristwatch designs ever. To mark its 100th anniversary Cartier has introduced a suite of new models, including the elegant and spare Tank Cintrée Skeleton.
Narrow, slim and slightly curved in profile, the Tank Cintrée series replica watches are arguably the most elegant of Tank wristwatches. Conceived as a skeleton watch for the first time, the anniversary limited edition is available in platinum or pink gold, each limited to 100 pieces. A smaller run in white gold with a diamond-set case will also be available.
It’s powered by the hand-wound cal. 9917 MC, a newly developed, in-house movement that is slightly curved to match the shape of the case. Constructed to have a near symmetrical layout running vertically, the cal. 9917 MC has the barrel at 12 o’clock, balance wheel at six, and the gear train in between.
The Tank Cintree Skeleton in pink gold fake watches are priced at S$88,500, equivalent to about US$65,000. The price of the platinum model has yet to be announced, but expect it to cost about 15% more.
While many of us beg for innovation to come from the watch industry, some things don’t really need to change. Sure, this statement might sound exceedingly traditionalist in nature, but some designs have endured for so long simply because “they got it right the very first time.” As a result, when brands attempt to revamp these designs, most of the time the execution falls short of anything noteworthy – there are just some things you shouldn’t mess with. So, we thought it would be fun to compile a handful of these watches simply to admire their thoughtful design and execution. And, if it’s a dressy watch you’re looking to add to your collection, you can’t go wrong with any of these.
Unveiled in 1917, the Cartier Tank series replica watches are perfect example of a simple design that sparked a whole new genre of watchmaking. The earliest examples were basic with a two-hand layout and beautiful Roman numeral hour markers that became a staple in the collection. The model pictured above used to belong to Jackie Kennedy and went up for auction not long ago. Through the years, Cartier has released countless iterations of the Tank – some more bloated and forgettable than others – but you really have to admire the original styling since it comes really, really close to the perfect timepiece.
A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Thin
Unlike the Cartier Tank, the Saxonia was first revealed much later in 1994. But, that doesn’t mean it isn’t on its way to becoming a modern-day classic – in many ways, it already is. The A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Thin pictured above is perhaps the dressiest in the collection and serves as a symbol of what high-end German watchmaking is all about. At 37mm it rests perfectly on the wrist and the clean dial design is something that I hope never changes too much. Thankfully, Lange hasn’t really messed with the Saxonia too much beyond offering a larger size and a running seconds sub-dial on some models.
This list wouldn’t be complete without the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso fake watches. Even though it has probably seen just as many iterations as the Tank, the more basic models still represent fine and unadulterated watchmaking at its finest. Since 1931, the watch has endured as one of the most iconic designs of all time and even though Jaeger has perhaps strayed a bit far in their modern versions, the Reverso is still a huge favorite of mine. It also walks a fine line between sport and dress watch, which makes it just as quirky as its distinct case-flipping mechanism.
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.
