The tradition of métiers d’art in Swiss watchmaking dates back over two centuries. In 1755, Vacheron Constantin began using a delicate enameling method to create miniature paintings on its fake watch dials. Since then, the techniques used in métiers d’art watches have evolved exponentially to include a wide array of enameling methods as well as engraving, guilloché, and the use of other unconventional materials. Each of these techniques requires artisans who have trained for years to become experts in their crafts, and as such, only a select few brands continue to keep these incredible art forms alive. Here are seven stunning examples of métiers d’art replica watches for sale.
As part of its novelties released at this year’s Watches & Wonders, Swiss made replica Cartier unveiled the Métiers d’Art Baignoire Allongée. The brand revamped its Baignoire line back in 2019 to include the Baignoire Allongée. As the name suggests, it features an elongated “bathtub” shaped case that while symmetrical, evokes a similar aesthetic as the brand’s coveted Crash models.
This year in particular, the cheap copy Cartier Baignoire has seen a surge in popularity, so it’s only fitting AAA quality fake Cartier would introduce a novelty edition for serious collectors. The Métiers d’Art Baignoire Allongée features a marquetry dial that combines shards of mother-of-pearl, turquoise, onyx, and white gold. The highly geometric look is complete with a spiky bezel set with diamonds, gray spinels, and blue tourmalines in an inverted pavilion setting.
