A Great Histrical of Cartier Roadster

Replica Cartier is a word famous watch brand,  which stands for prestige, wealth, and taste. The name alone is worth much, adding a thick degree of immediate attention whenever it is applied to an item. You may double why Cartier gain such good reputation? One that is close to entry level model from the brand, though still pricey, and still Cartier. This is the newer Cartier Roadster S. Part of the brand’s desire to keep their product name relevant in anticipation of some years where typically high spending in their boutiques will likely wane a bit. Plus, it is good for any luxury brand to have as full a product line as they can – from the entry level to the super high-end. Cartier is not only pushing higher and higher with their elaborate and thoughtful in-house made movement based watches, but are interested in being more accessible to people on the lower end of the luxury scale.

Roadster

Saying “lower-end” is a bit of a misnomer. The Cartier Roadster still starts at $4,200, high roller figures to many. At the same time, a Cartier watch is worth saving up for compared to many other timepieces. Cartier makes a pretty polished watch. They have been doing so for a while, and mistakes they make in design are few and far between. Serious watch lovers are going to be most interested in pieces like their new Calibre collection that includes a brand new in-house made automatic movement, but replica Roadster fans will like this new watch. The replica Roadster S is certainly a Roadster, but a scaled down version. Further, people who find the original Roadster watch to be a bit strange in design will like the Roadster S. It retains the same shape, but with a different personality. I tend to think of it is a good “starter Cartier.” It is not going to be easy to go from higher-end Cartier to the Roadster S, but the opposite situation in easily feasible. Nevertheless, the watch is a simple, yet highly satisfying timepiece for the vast majority of watch wearers.

Dial is very impressive, and totally Cartier. The sapphire crystal, while curved a bit, is exceptionally clear. Lots of AR coating and a perfectly even crystal thickness ensures a totally glare and distortion free look in most viewing angles. Other watch makers need to look to Cartier to model their crystals and AR coatings. You’d barely known anything was over the dial at times. Using a slightly more simple version of the Roadster dial style, the Roman numerals and inner hour marker ring make the watch enjoyable to read. After all, the dial on the replica Roadster is very similar to that on the Roadster. There is a new outline on the ring of where the bullet shaped magnifier lens used to be to retain that shape.

Inside the watch is Cartier’s automatic Calibre –  ETA 2892 based movement, which works fine, but isn’t anything fancy. It is a good movement to have in a sport watch given its relative level of durability. While this is no action-adventure watch, with its lighter weight, 100 meters of water resistance, and secure fit on the wrist, you could easily be “active” with the watch and not have it impede you too much. Though I tend to not recommend people do wild things in nice watches.

Replica Rotonde de Cartier Mystery Watch

The term “mystery” as applied to the Cartier means that you can’t immediately see how the hands are attached.

Cartier-Rotonde-Mystery

Cartier was one of the most impressive brands to visit at 2013 SIHH.  Start at 100 years ago, they were making a range of beautiful mystery desk and mantle clocks. That heritage has now been miniaturized into a pair of high-end wrist watches in their upper-end collection. One is the Rotonde de Cartier Mystery watch and the other is the Rotonde de Cartier Double Tourbillon Mystery Watch. That latter piece will likely get a dedicated timepiece so stay tuned for more information on that.

Cartier’s Rotonde Mystery watch is rather lovely and comes in 18k white or rose gold. The Rotonde-style case in this instance is 42mm wide with a tone of distinct Cartier styling. You get that typical deeply cut and engraved dial with blackened sections and Roman numerals for much of the dial. Then there is the “hole” where you see the hands. Just in case you aren’t familiar with these systems, the movement moves two transparent sapphire crystals that have the hands mounted on them. It creates the illusion that the hands are floating in space. The effect is interesting, but as many people commented when I first put an image of this on Instagram and Facebook while at the show, it doesn’t super sexy to see your arm hair through the watch.

Inside replica Cartier Rotonde Mystery watch is an in-house made caliber 9981 MC manually wound movement, which is made up of 158 parts and operates at 21,800 bph. It has a power reserve of 48 hours, and is just 4.61mm thick. The whole replica Cartier watch is just 11.6mm thick. And on the rear of the watch you can see the movement in its entirety. The challenge for a movement such as this is moving the relatively heavy discs which can effect accuracy greatly.

The replica Cartier Rotonde Mystery is 42mm wide, 18k white or rose gold options, as well as steel models available. There is another thing should be mentioned that replica Cartier also offers a full pave with diamonds version of its piece. No doubt the replica Cartier piece is more classic in style, but you get something a bit more unique with Konstantin Chaykin.

Replica Rotonde de Cartier Crocodile Motif Watch with Flying Tourbillon

For each SIHH show, the most exciting thing for me is visiting Cartier and seeing their new limited edition art pieces that often revolve around animals.

Cartier has a dial with a crocodile carved in relief, which is made by natural stone agate. Agate is a common but beautiful stone that I believe is similar to amethyst. It is found primarily in volcanic rocks as I understand it. Agate is often blue and further tends to have various shades of blue that lighten toward the center. By selecting the right piece of an agate rock to carve, a skilled artist can make use of the gradient ramp to their advantage. Sure enough, in this replica Cartier watch you can see how a section of agate is used to highlight the crocodile head in a lighter shade of blue, but the lower sections are a darker blue. It makes for a beautiful effect.

Although agate rock may not be that uncommon, watches with hand-carved agate dials are. It is one of those interesting artistic skills that top luxury watch brands like Cartier can make use of from time to time when impressing a very limited audience, which also makes replica Cartier industry a great challenge in copying it. As such, the authentic Rotonde de Cartier Flying Tourbillon Crocodile Motif watch will be in the hands of no more than 30 people total, more consumer pursuit a replica. I do wonder if it is the same group of people eagerly awaiting the new Cartier art pieces each year, or if Cartier is able to expand the market for these interesting niche luxury pieces.

In fact those who aren’t as familiar with the Cartier of today should know that the brand is one of the leaders in offering both very classic mainstream entry-level luxury timepieces as well as fantastic ultra high-end creations that either focus on art or haute horology to impress even the most dedicate of watch aficionados.

The case is 42mm wide offered only in 18k white gold (stainless steel for replica). The “Rotonde” is among Cartier’s more simple cases, being perfectly round with thin lugs that gently curl downwards. The polished and rounded bezel is meant to look thin so as to offer an expansive view of the dial. The most “Cartier” element about the case is the crown with its distinctive grip and pointy sapphire crystal cabochon.

Inside the Flying Tourbillon Crocodile Motif is a Cartier in-house made movement – calibre MC 9452 movement. It is a manual wilding movement, which features just the time and flying tourbillon. The movement also happens to bear the Geneva seal, which means that it follows certain decorative and performance guidelines, as well as being built within Geneva. Cartier wants to make its ownership of the movement abundantly clear, as the engraved logo is neighbored by three “C” elements on the movement including on the touribllon. You can see the movement through the rear sapphire display crystal on even the replica watch.
