Despite the pandemic, many brands did not hold back when it came to releasing new luxury replica watches. What usually would be launched at one of the fairs or during a special event was now presented by Zoom- and Skype-meetings. Fortunately, this doesn’t make the watches any less impressive, as the following one prove.
For Cartier, 2020 was the year of the best quality fake Pasha de Cartier. This iconic model celebrated its 35th anniversary, which ‘La Maison’ marked by launching a new generation.
One of the most remarkable new models is the rose gold case copy Pasha de Cartier Tourbillon. Cartier has achieved quite a reputation with its skeletonized watches in recent years, and this Pasha continues that tradition. Stripped to only the bare essentials is this watch a technical delight to behold, all the more because it is fitted with a flying tourbillon.
The Arabic numerals and hour markers double as bridges for the movement, while the Vendome lugs and canteen crown give this Carter copy watch with blue hands its distinct look, which was originally penned down by Gerald Genta.

Omar, who lives in Nepal, shares with us today a gift he received from his father when he was 12 – his steel case replica Cartier Must de Cartier Ronde. This watch sparked Omar’s interest in luxury replica watches, and after a few years of compiling a small collection, it’s still his favorite timepiece. After reading numerous articles, watching videos, and researching the brand’s history, his passion for collecting has only grown because of this watch – the one that started it all.
The panther has become so synonymous with Cartier replica that any jewelry iterations of the majestic animal outside of the Parisian house appear mere copies. Starting in the 1920s, the maison’s famed director of jewelry and former lover of Louis Cartier, Jeanne Toussaint, made the slinky feline a perennial inspiration. Cartier affectionately called Toussaint “PanPan,” and her Paris apartment was said to be strewn with the animal’s skins. But the Duchess of Windsor is credited with making the spotted creature a fashion symbol when, in 1949, she was photographed wearing one of the first 3-D Panthère creations: a brooch set atop a 152.35-carat Kashmir sapphire given to her by her husband, the former Edward VIII. In 2010, a bracelet version of the feline figure worn by the socialite sold at Sotheby’s London for $7.23 million.
A century later, the elegant cat is still making Cartier’s clients purr. The brand’s latest homage to its icon comes encapsulated in a 42 mm white-gold Ronde Louis Cartier fake timepiece, limited to 30, each individually numbered. Slices of straw marquetry, gold and enamel, handcrafted by artisans at the company’s specialized Métiers d’Art atelier in Switzerland, come together in a colorful tableau to form the visage of one of the world’s most beautiful beasts.
Cartier transformed a farmhouse into the setting of its Maison des Métiers d’Art in Switzerland’s La Chaux-de-Fonds watchmaking region. Inside, some 16,000 square feet of floor space is dedicated to blending ancient craftsmanship with watchmaking expertise.
Tiny paintbrushes, the size of a handful of hair strands, are used to paint the enamel of the dial.Seventy-five blades of straw, in assorted sizes and 11 colors, make up the cat’s face.The straw used in the marquetry must be finely sliced to length before it’s unfolded with a bone tool. The fibers are then flattened, soaked and softened in cold, warm and hot water. Finally, each is ironed flat.The gold marquetry is created through parts that have been laser-cut into particular shapes to replicate the nuances of a panther’s form and shadowing. Each part must be cleaned, polished and manually curved before it is placed on the dial of top quality replica Cartier.An artisan uses a paper outline to match the colored straw to the exact specs of each laser-cut gold shape to form a colorful 3-D effect.Various instruments, including tweezers and a scalpel, are used to trim and place the minute different pieces of colored straw onto the dial.A microscope is required to enable the miniature details of the dial to be perfected. Each piece requires more than 100 hours of work, 97 of which are exclusively for the dial.
To secure the enamel in place on the dial,
it must first be fired in a kiln at around 1,470 degrees Fahrenheit. The temperature is then adjusted to obtain the correct colorations for each of the separate enamel settings. It must be cooked 10 times to achieve the final result.
The finishing touch, before the gray leather strap copy Cartier is added, is the protective 18-karat white-gold case, which will preserve the wearable art.
