When Cartier released the previous generation of the “Santos 100” series in 2004, it was to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the first original watch design. I reviewed Cartier Santos 100 on blog observations a few years ago and still like this model very much – but there will be more later. Today my focus is on the new “Santos de Cartier” large model that Cartier Replica Watches released in early 2018. Cartier wants to ensure that the new Santos watch will be available soon after its debut (which is not common in the watch industry) and early reports that the sales of the new Santos models are strong. The specific model I evaluated was the Cartier Santos reference W2SA0006, which features a two-color steel and 18k yellow gold case and a larger 39.8mm case (Cartier also produced a smaller 35.1mm wide new Santos version).
The new Santos case is made of steel and is water resistant to 100 meters and features elegant curved sapphire crystal. The case is crafted from brushed and polished surfaces. Inlaid on the crown is a blue spinel cabochon. Cartier Replica used sapphire crystal cabochons, but they only use it on high-end models. From a design perspective, you can see the similarities between the old and new Santos cases. This includes most crown protection structures as well as the geometric crown itself. This watch is made of all steel (or full pink or gold), but I prefer the two-tone look of the watch, steel and 18k yellow gold. One of the reasons is that the golden screws in the bracelet are more contrasted and add visual interest. The second is an increase in contrast, thanks to the gold bezel.
My favorite of the previous generation of Cartier Santos 100 was specifically for the new generation of models that I tried to leave in the past. The heavy, masculine, elegant Santos 100 is by no means as versatile or versatile as Cheap Cartier Replica Watches designed to reduce the previous model polarity. Having said that, I must say that I regret to decide to design a simpler deployment for the new generation of models. The bracelet features a simple butterfly-style expansion. It’s great, but I don’t like the button that sticks out under the bracelet. What I really miss is a more complex deployment of the previous generation model. For these works, Cartier designed a more elaborate deployment that mimicked the beauty of the case, including the golden plates.
