The why and how of the 1:1 replica Cartier Santos-Dumont Rewind

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of perfect replica Cartier? For me, it’s probably a classic, rectangular Tank Solo with a white dial. For others, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was one of a few others – Santos, Love Bracelet, perhaps even a leashed panther. But how many think of a red-dialled, platinum watch that runs in reverse? Okay, the picture I paint of the luxury fake Cartier Santos-Dumont Rewind is a bit extreme – the reality is, as you’d expect from Cartier, a lot more refined. But that’s exactly the intrigue that surrounds this recent release, as it’s a move I’d expect from a micro or independent as opposed to a brand of the calibre of Cartier (pun fully intended). So, how exactly did aaa quality replica Cartier achieve this, and why did it choose to go in this direction? I can answer at least one of those questions objectively.

The movement
Seeing as the reverse running of the Rewind is its main novelty, let’s start with the movement. Swiss made replica Cartier denotes the movement powering the Santos-Dumont Rewind as the 230 MC, which is a variant of the widely adopted 430 MC with reversed gearing. This 18-jewel calibre provides a 38-hour power reserve, beating at 3Hz, but only measuring in 2.1mm in height. Breaking down its origins further, the movement is actually developed from Piaget’s 430P, an unsurprising fact considering Piaget’s efforts in ultra-thin watchmaking. Sure, the result is perhaps not as impressive as some of cheap super clone Cartier’s other haute horlogerie efforts à la Masse Mystérieuse, but it is proof that Cartier is capable of manufacturing unique complications. The closed caseback doesn’t reveal much in terms of finishing, but the 430 MC is usually adorned with Cartier logo-embossed plates and circularly brushed wheels, so I’d expect the 230 MC to follow a similar course. Considering the level of decoration, I’m not mad high end replica Cartier chose not to display it.

The dial

Now, for the thing you’ll spend the most time looking at, both for its beauty and sure-fire confusion that is to ensue. The highly reflective Roman numeral indices are applied to a carnelian red stone dial, matched by delicate Breguet-style hands. There is no mention of its unique time-telling way on the dial – at first glance, the Rewind could easily pass as a regular Swiss movement copy Cartier Santos-Dumont. You’ve still got the signature white railroad minutes running around the dial’s perimeter, matched in colour by the minimal Cartier script above the pinion.

If you’re wondering whether there’s a trick in deciphering the Rewind’s dial, allowing you to easily get adjusted to its reverse running – well, there isn’t one. At least not one that I’ve figured out, though through the process of writing this review, I’ve actually become more and more accustomed to telling the time. I am glad that high quality replica Cartier went with numerals over just stick indices, as I envision those as taking a lot longer to get used to.

The case
I know that the novelty of the best quality fake Cartier Santos-Dumont Rewind is the stone dial and reversed movement, but the platinum case has to be one of my favourites from any brand, period. The dimensions are pretty much perfect for a dressy-leaning all-rounder, and the platinum construction adds in any heft that might be lost thanks to the diminutive sizing.

At 31.4mm in width and 7.3mm in height, the top quality replica Cartier Santos-Dumont Rewind makes the most of the ultra-thin movement, leaving enough room for elegant lugs that stretch out to 43.5mm. The mirror-polished reflective bezel is picked up by other polished highlights on the lug bevels and crown, with the remainder of the case a highly textured brushed finish. The ruby cabochon on the beaded crown telegraphs that this is a platinum Cartier super clone for sale, a flex in the most Cartier of ways.

The Best Vintage Cartier Replica Watches Online

It’s hard not to be a fan of perfect replica Cartier if you’re into watches. From the fascinating, multi-generational history of the original Cartier family, to the project of relentless creativity that Cartier has embarked upon since its earliest days, there’s just so much to love about the best vintage Cartier fake watches online.

The reason why Swiss made replica Cartier is such an important watchmaking brand can be summed up by Louis Cartier’s favourite saying: “Never copy, only create.” Cartier was just 23 years old when he joined the family business in 1898, the eldest of three brothers who would turn the small jewellery business into a household name, competing with the likes of Fabergé and Tiffany & Co.

Cartier Santos
Like all good stories, we have to start at the beginning. The first wristwatch ever made, not just by best 1:1 replica Cartier, but by any watch manufacturer, was the Cartier Santos watch. Remember, before the 20th century, wristwatches were thought of as feminine, with the gentlemen of the day choosing to wear pocket watches. But when, in 1904, Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont asked his friend Louis Cartier to make him a watch. Specifically, a watch he could read without taking his hands off the controls of his prototype aircraft, and the AAA quality fake Cartier Santos was born.

The high quality fake Cartier Santos watch can be recognised by the polished bezel that stands out against the brushed case, complete with eight screws or pins that attaches the bezel to the case. The Santos watch also features the iconic square dial, made famous by the black Roman numerals that align with the heat-blued sword hands. This Swiss movement copy Cartier is the reference 1575 and was made during the 1990s, inspired by the original design that was first drawn nearly a century earlier. The case is platinum, with dimensions of 27mm by 36mm, making it a modestly sized watch by modern standards.
