This time, Cartier upgraded the new model of the Santos de Cartier series, retaining the classic design and innovating on it, such as bezels, bracelets and movements. The innovation of the bracelet is one of the highlights of this model, because Cartier uses a QuickSwitch, which is a hidden mechanism that combines with the case, so that the wearer can replace the straps or bracelets of stainless steel and 18K gold with different materials, and match the style that they like, keeping up with the trend. In addition, Cartier also uses a metal bracelet adjustment SmartLink, which can easily adjust the length of the metal bracelet without tools. These two technologies of Cartier have provided great convenience to the watch friends.
The new models of the Santos de Cartier series retain the squares and lines borrowed from Parisian architecture, breaking the common round design. The square shape presented by it echoes the exquisiteness and symmetry conveyed by the aesthetics of Paris in the early twentieth century, in order to pay tribute to the square design of the Eiffel Tower. The bezel has been carefully redesigned to provide a smoother and more harmonious connection to the bracelet. The delicate and long lines make the watch more contemporary and energetic.
Eight classic screws have been retained on the bezel. In addition to their practicality, they also commemorate the ubiquitous mechanical steel structure of the golden city of Paris, which is full of avant-garde and bold charm.
The heptagon crown is located on one side of the watch and is inlaid with a multi-faceted synthetic spinel. The tough straight line and the case are set against each other, blending modern fashion elements.
The white dial continues the large Roman numeral time scale design of the Santos de Cartier collection, with a track dial and blue steel hands for a clearer reading time. The classic and fashion collisions between the wrists make the charm of the man come out.
The straps made of stainless steel are exquisite and meticulous, and the two techniques mentioned above are technically used, so that you can do whatever you want in the event. It is very convenient to easily match the straps of different colors and materials according to different occasions.
This time Cartier used the self-produced 1847MC self-winding movement on this watch, which is excellent in diamagnetic, waterproof and anti-jamming. The power reserve is 42 hours. On this movement, Cartier showed his mastery of watchmaking skills and relentless pursuit.
From the value to the technology, Cartier’s new Santos de Cartier collection watch can make people feel excited. In 2018, it is based on the classics, combining vintage style with modern avant-garde atmosphere, so that every city man can show his charm. After all, the watch is like a person, walking on the road of fashion.
