The colourful past, present and future of perfect CA fake Cartier watches

“It made me feel like Yorkshire’s answer to Huggy Bear,” recalled my old friend Bruce when I reminded him of the time we cruised Scarborough’s seafront in his 1979 Lincoln Continental, acquired the previous day as a mobile marketing tool to promote a thriving jet ski hire business — in exchange for just 10 crisp, £50 notes.

With its 462 cubic inch engine (that’s 7.6 litres in Euro-speak), white leather interior, white shag-pile carpet and dazzling white paintwork, it certainly turned heads amid the faded Victorian grandeur of the northern resort where more usual traffic comprised Ford Escorts, Vauxhall Astras and Austin Allegros.
By then, Bruce’s ‘79 Continental – once a passable Cadillac rival – was 15 years old and a down-at-heel luxury dinosaur that had succeeded in living up to its name by roaming to a continent on which it was entirely irrelevant.
And it wasn’t any old Continental, either, but a top-of- the- range high quality fake Cartier edition, complete with numbered dashboard plaque, the word ‘Cartier’ sprinkled liberally throughout the interior and distinctive, square instruments marked with the famous entwined ‘C’s and featuring the ribbed look found on Cartier’s Oval lighters.

Lending its hallowed name to a pimped-up ride was just one of the dubious decisions made by Cartier management during the 1970s, a period when the ‘jeweller of kings and king of jewellers’ was experiencing a financial downturn of right royal proportions, leading it to follow a business model established by Pierre Cardin that revolved around offering licensing arrangements — some of which were more appropriate than others.

Among the best was the one granted to entrepreneur Robert Hocq in 1968.

At the time, Hocq was head of the Silver Match cigarette lighter company which was licensed by Cartier Paris to produce the aforementioned Oval lighter, a good-looking, pleasingly tactile and innovative item with a retractable spark wheel.
Although it was every bit as well-made as a luxury replica Cartier item was expected to be and was supplied in the brand’s distinctive and coveted packaging, the Oval came with an unusually affordable price tag due to being gold plated rather than made from the far more expensive 18 carat stuff with which the brand was associated.

Just a year later, Hocq recruited a 26-year-old Alain-Dominique Perrin to work at ‘Briquets de Cartier’ and, within 12 months appointed him as managing director.

The Cartier family had sold the dynastic business in 1964, leaving the ‘original’ Cartier with just four stores — in Hong-Kong, Geneva, Munich and Paris, with Cartier London and Cartier New York no longer being part of the main group.

Hocq and Perrin, together with another entrepreneur called Joseph Kanoui, set about unifying the world of Cartier, first by buying-back Cartier Paris in 1972, followed by London (‘74) and finally New York (76) to create ‘Cartier International’ (of which Perrin served as managing director from 1981 to 2001).
Roaring sales of the Oval lighter led Hocq and Perrin to ponder if the answer to getting Cartier back on its feet might be to offer a whole range of more affordable products, which led to the arrival of Cartier leather goods, pens and perfumes. All provided grist to the mill, but it was the decision in 1977 to launch a less expensive Cartier wrist watch under the umbrella of the ‘Must de Cartier’ sub-brand that really got things going.

Swiss movement copy Must de Cartier (allegedly named after a junior member of the marketing team suggested ‘Cartier: it’s a must!’ as a potential campaign slogan) was established by Perrin and Hocq on the basis that ‘luxury’ could also apply to practical objects; that Cartier needed to expand its horizons while retaining its air of exclusivity; and, most importantly, that the firm needed to capture a wider audience with an offering of more affordable, still stylish product.

The result was the original cheap replica Tank Must de Cartier, a gold-plated wrist watch with an Ebel mechanical movement that retailed at just $500.

W&W 2021: Swiss Luxury CA Fake Cartier Pasha de Cartier Chronograph 41 mm

With its distinctive codes, chained crown, and extraordinary design, the Pasha has been a watch for those who think big since its creation in 1985. Successfully relaunched in 2020, the new high quality Pasha de Cartier replica watch is sophisticated in terms of watchmaking functions and design details that combine to strengthen and maximize its ergonomic appeal: interchangeable straps, sapphire case back, a new crown, and personalized engraving. A cult watch whose repertoire is growing in 2021 with two new key designs: from a more feminine 30 mm version to a more masculine 41 mm Cartier fake chronograph.

Made to measure records, the new Cartier chronograph boosts the Pasha watch’s power and visibility. A strong approach that further enhances the watch’s design, accentuated by the presence of a rotating bezel and two push-pieces. Faithful to the historic version of the first Pasha chronographs, these two buttons, set with a cabochon, have kept the original design’s volume. A choice of both style and excess that is perfectly in line with the 1:1 quality copy Pasha de Cartier spirit.


This new chronograph version is equipped with a 1904-CH MC Cartier Manufacture movement with a power reserve of 47 hours and a sapphire case back. In steel or 18K yellow gold, all these versions can be interchanged thanks to an adaptation of the Cartier-developed QuickSwitch system. This invisible mechanism blends into an architecture located under the case and is activated by a single push. The metal bracelet can also be adjusted to the nearest link, without the need for tools, thanks to the SmartLink system.

To celebrate the launch of the latest interpretation of its iconic Pasha de Cartier copy with blue hands in 2020, the Maison is offering a complimentary full service —for a limited time only— to Pasha owners, regardless of the year their watch was created.

Canada All Black Santos De Cartier Fake Watches Online For Sale

Reference Number: WSSA0039
Case Material: Stainless Steel
Case Size: 47.5mm x 39.8mm
Price: AU $11,600

However, whether your Santos de Cartier fake with black dial is finished in a classic silver and gold finish, or this Uber-cool all black number, is down to you. Certainly exhibiting a much more modern appearance than its brethren, this all-black Santos – achieved via an Amorphous Diamond-Luke Carbon (ADLC) coating on the case, bezel and crown – including black dial and black date window.
It’s the intricate details on this all-black Cartier replica with black DLC coated stainless steel case edition that truly exemplify how good of a watchmaker Cartier is. Some other watchmakers may default to a white date window with black text, for example. Not so here, and in employing a black window instead, the colours aren’t broken up. We also love the black rubber strap, designed to imitate the stainless steel bracelets found on other models through the use of screw-shaped rivets.
If you want a Cartier watch to wear as an everyday piece, this all-black copy Santos de Cartier WSSA0039 could be just the ticket.

A Haul of Vintage CA Replica Cartier Watches Online Is up for Sale at Dover Street Market

Is there such a thing as too many Cartier timepieces? Dover Street Market doesn’t think so. After holding an exhibition of vintage and high quality Cartier Tank replica watches at its Los Angeles outpost last year, the high-end retailer is offering a haul of collectible Cartier wrist candy via its online store.

Harry Fane, the London-based gallerist considered the world’s foremost expert on Cartier, has again curated the retro rarities. This time, however, there are only six statement watches rather than 36, making them even more elusive.
The half dozen set comprises both men’s and women’s styles from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s. The standout is a Diamond Tank wristwatch from 1980 that’s priced at approximately $17,950 (£12,840). For the unversed, the cheap copy Cartier Tank is the oldest, and, arguably, the most influential timepiece of 20th-century horology. It’s been donned by legendary cultural figures ranging from Muhammad Ali and Katherine Hepburn to Jackie Onassis and Andy Warhol.
This particular example is characterized by an 18k yellow gold case that features elegantly rounded corners and sparkling stones. Cartier began incorporating gems into its gentleman’s watches in the late ‘60s and this timepiece is even equipped with a diamond winder. The striking 23.6 mm dial is fitted to a dark brown crocodile-embossed leather strap.

Another highlight is a 1:1 quality copy Cartier Tank Automatique from 1975, which will set you back about $26,000 (£18,600). Also known as the Tank Jumbo, this timepiece was first introduced in 1974 and made in limited quantities throughout the ‘70s. It was the first Tank to sport an automatic movement, which explains the bump on the back of the case that houses the watch’s inner workings.
Staying in the same decade is a Baignoire wristwatch from 1972 that’s priced at $17,950 (£12,840). A clear outlier, it is the only one of the selection to feature the oval-shaped face synonymous with Cartier’s Baignoire series, which launched in 1956. Made by Cartier London, it sports a 19 mm case crafted from 18 kt yellow gold, along with the brand’s trademark blued Èpée hands and a beaded winder with a sapphire cabochon.

Rounding out the six is a Swiss made replica Cartier Tank from the ‘70s ($16,770/£12,000), a Lady’s Tank LC from 1975 ($10,060/£7,200) and a Lady’s Blue Enamel and Gold Bracelet timepiece ($20,130/£14,400). As an added bonus, each watch on offer also comes with a bespoke strap that’s made to order upon purchase.
