Between the 1970s to the present day, there have been many references and variations, but the latest update came in 2018. Swiss made replica Cartier UK replaced the outgoing Santos 100, initially launched in 2004, with a whole new collection. This included multiple sizes in stainless steel, two-tone and gold (rose and yellow), and skeleton dials. Since then, further references such as a chronograph, new dial colors such as blue and green, and ADLC/PVD bezels have been added.
As you can tell, the perfect fake Cartier Santos from 1904 does not change much in overall design barring the obvious, so producing a whole new collection within a confined framework is no easy feat. In my opinion, this new collection is a huge success, providing updates that take the watch back to its 1970s roots and making it more appealing to current copy watch trends.
When discussing the 1:1 replica Cartier Santos, you have to start with the case. The updated collection is offered in medium and large sizes, followed by an extra-large for two chronograph references. It is difficult to talk sizes in the traditional sense when looking at square watches, but for those looking for specs, the medium case is 35.1mm x 41.9mm and the large is 39.8mm x 47.5mm. Both are also thin high end copy watches with the thickness coming in at 8.83mm for the medium and 9.08mm for the large.
What does this mean? I am sure you may think a 35.1mm case diameter might be small, although when they are on your wrist, they will feel larger. I couldn’t put an exact number on it, but the medium wears as if it were a 36-37mm watch. The same relative increase can be applied to the large. The reality is there needs to be a new measurement for aaa quality square replica watches to make it easier to understand wrist presence from a spec sheet, but I will leave that to someone out there to devise.
The bracelet may have only been introduced in the 1970s but has since become synonymous with the Swiss movement replica Cartier Santos and for good reason. The bracelet, in my eyes, makes this watch what it is. The links are straight and add to the angular look of the Cartier Santos super clone online, yet each link is slightly domed making it supple to touch. This aspect creates some visual interest with how it interacts with light despite being fully brushed on the surface.
Then there are the screws found on every link. The screws are a defining characteristic of best quality replica Cartier and draw on their jewelry design language. Each is polished and for the two-tone model, the screws are gold, set into the stainless steel link.
The dial looks very similar to previous UK Cartier Santos fake watches online and that’s no bad thing. There is still an Art Deco vibe providing the watch with an abundance of elegance. I will focus on the traditional white dial to break down the different details to look for, although there will be slight differences with the colored dials.
