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.

Watch Review: Cartier Calibre Chronograph Watch

Replica Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Automatic

In 2010, Cartier released a brand new edition of men’s watches –  the Calibre. It was rather revolutionary for the brand for a couple of reasons, bringing Cartier’s men’s collection into the 21st Century. It was also a mass produced watch that contained an in-house made Cartier movement – something that previously only existed in their most high-end pieces( for the Calibre, I think the price is still expensive).

Calibre is handsome, the right size, and possess very much what a modern guy wanted in a replica Cartier. Sure models like the Santos and Roadster would always be popular, but I think Cartier needed something with a little sport in it as well as pizzazz. Since 2010 Cartier has trickled out variations on the original design by adding a bracelet option in 2011, and for 2012 there is a chronograph. For a full hands-on review on the original Cartier watch (on the bracelet) see this article.

It wasn’t difficult to predict that Cartier would make the Calibre as a new edition. In fact, the Calibre case is used in many of their much higher-end pieces as well. Though those models are distinct from the basic replica Calibre models because they target vastly different price demographics. This relica Cartier Calibre Chronograph is the second version of the “mainstream luxury” Calibre watch collection. The case design is unchanged from the original save for the addition of the chronograph pushers.

Cartier put chronograph pushers into the extended crown structure, which look extremely elegant. In fact, if you look at the three-hand version of the Calibre you’ll notice that area which now contains the chronograph pushers appears as though it was designed from the beginning with a plan that pushers would eventually be there. In 2012, a replica Calibre Chronograph is available in a 42mm wide steel or 18k gold plated case – and a bracelet or strap option is available from the outset.

Replica Cartier Calibre Diving Watch

I was expecting from Cartier for 2014 is a diving watch, which is how the peculiar “desire engine” of the watch industry works. The Cartier Calibre Diver here back before we got a hands-on look at it at the SIHH 2014 watch show. The Calibre has been one of our favorite men’s pieces and we’ve known that it was to serve as a foundation for a range of Caritier replica models. While I sort of expected that 2014 was going to bring us a replica Calibre GMT, it insteadly gave us a diving version of the original. To be honest not that much is different from the standard three-hand Cartier compared to the Diver. Sure the diver has a rotating diver’s bezel and a slightly bolder dial, but aside from the rubber strap and deeper water resistance is the same classy men’s watch I’ve come to really enjoy.

Cartier-Calibre-Diver

Many people may already like the Calibre Diver without our introduction. What I want to do is explain the watch to guys who typically like dive watches but not Cartier – at least a sporty Cartier. Honestly, if you are a typical dive watch guy there is a lot to find appealing here if you want to ignore that you suddenly have a status watch on your wrist when wanting to be active. First of all, this is among the thinnest 300 meters dive watches out there being 11mm thick. This isn’t “ultra-thin,” but is certainly not thick for a diving watch. It is also just over 1mm thicker than the standard Calibre model. Overall I feel that “thickness conscious” watch lovers should have nothing to complain about.

As a “real diving tool”, the replica Calibre Diver got ISO 6425 certified and pressure tested in water before leaving the factory. Much of the watch is standard Calibre which is a good thing. The 42mm diameter case is a great size that wears large but is really reasonable in its dimensions. For my wrist at least it wears wonderfully, wrapping around my wrist with those curved lugs. It is honestly incredibly comfortable.

Most of the Calibre Diver case is brushed, but there are fine polished elements along the edges of the lugs and other areas. Cartier typically is very keen on ensuring the finishing is something they focus on in their very high to mid-range luxury watches such as the diver. There are few watchmakers out there that offer a replica dive watch.

Rotonde de Cartier Earth and Moon – A immitation Of Skeleton Dial

M[U~MT~@AJ@8ZL2L)}$3@8O

The Rotonde de Cartier Earth and Moon watch is the fruit of a technical and creative ambition that for Cartier consists of bringing together two complications in a daring display. A tourbillon has been incorporated into a moon phase complication, each depending on the other. It’s the newest triple complication watch, made its global debut at Feb at the Salon Internationale de Haute Horlogerie.

An innovative blend of complications
The moon-phase mechanism of the Rotonde de Cartier Earth and Moon watch is founded on a creative and complex design that combines a tourbillon, moon phase on demand and a second time zone.

The watch’s vibrant lapis lazuli dial is overlaid with roman numerals in chamfered white gold, lending a three-dimensional appearance that has become a hallmark of Cartier’s fine watches. The first of the watch’s three complications, a 24-hour disk that can track a second time zone, is found at the top of the dial and can be set via a pusher positioned at 2 o’clock on the titanium case. Located just below the disk is the watch’s second complication, a tourbillon visible through an aperture in the dial. The third complication (and the watch’s namesake), a moon-phase indicator, is unapparent until the wearer engages the pusher at 4 o’clock. A small disk then swings down and partially obscures the tourbillon. The section of the mechanism that remains visible indicates the portion of the moon that can currently be seen in the sky. A sapphire crystal on the back of the case allows observation of the movement, which features semi-skeletonized bridges arranged in the shape of a star.

Technique and the creativity make this watch one of the exceptional pieces in the Cartier collection and beyond, whilst design and execution this watch turn into a very desirable and hard to resist timepiece. However the choice of platinum for the 47mm case, makes it also a watch that’s very present on the wrist, but for anyone interested in high watch making, this is one of those collectors watches, that are seldom presented.

In addition to the standard Rotonde de Cartier Earth and Moon, which is priced at $271,000 and limited to just 50 examples, replica Cartier will create many pieces  to meet the high market demanding.

New Replica Laco Marine Style Watch for Cartier Pasha Seatimer

At Basel World (2008) in April. I fell in Laco watches, and this one seemed particularly attractive.
04IKGTQBMB~VM~9T(}J$PLG
Laco isn’t always known for their individuality, but they take classic aviation and diving watches, and place a polished, clean rendition of their own on them. Actually they have been making pilot watches in that particular style before it was considered a “vintage” look. This particular model is essentially a Teutonic clone of the also new Cartier Pasha Seatimer. If I know Laco, then this new watch will sport an automatic Swiss movement , and be reasonably priced.

That is of course unlike the Cartier, which is extremely over charged, which you pay a lot for the name. However, replica Cartier watches are really shiny. Admittedly, the Cartier pictured has a bit more “character” than the Laco, but that is to be expected. Suppose these watches were on a ship for the crew. The captain would adorn the Cartier, while the officers would have the Laco. Both equally functional, but the Laco more service orientated than fashion forward.

What makes these watches unique is the arrangement of the square minute hash marks in the middle of the watch, but being in a round case. This is often the opposite, as you have a round minutes indicator in a square case. Nonetheless, it is quite a classy look, which exprerienced a long history. The rotating bezel signifies the connection with diving, along with the rubber diver’s strap on the Laco. Further, I would have liked to see the date window placed in the diagonal position, as in the replica Cartier, which would have made spare for a number “3.”

Our replica Laco has good quality cases too, and I am sure most people will choose rubber strap, and there are clearly many more attractive option available. I am actually happy to see that replica Laco did not copy the gimmicky crown protector on the Cartier that connected to the case. This is a vestige of classic dive watches replica  that needed this extra protection for water resistance mostly. The numbering on replica Cartier is more tasteful, but that does not mean that the Laco is lacking of stock.
