In many ways, this very well could have been Cartier’s general-purpose sports watch for the new millennium, with a solid 100 meters of water resistance, durable construction, and a variety of bolder sizes that set it apart from the traditionally dressy, diminutive core of the Cheap Cartier Replica brand. In practice, despite a dedicated cult following the Roadster lasted barely a decade before being unceremoniously dropped by Cartier in 2012, while the brand turned its automotive-themed efforts towards the far more conservative Drive series.
While it may be gone, the Roadster line remains a unique expression of automotive-influenced watchmaking, combining the sumptuous look and feel of Cartier’s design language with a classic American bent. This circa 2008 Cartier Roadster LM offers one of the purest expressions of the design in the broad, diverse collection, which includes everything from diminutive gem-set women’s pieces to massive, oversized two-tone chronograph designs. Cartier Replica Watches Sized at 38mm-wide by 44mm lug-to-lug, the Roadster LM’s mirror-polished stainless steel case takes on a softly rounded, Franck Muller-esque semi-tonneau form.
Although the tonneau shape wears noticeably larger than an equivalent 38mm round case, the Replica Watches Online Sale Roadster LM conforms to the curvature of the wrist impressively well, with a gently arched caseback and corresponding case sides that give the design a soft, organic feel when worn. A raised, rounded step bezel helps to give the design a sense of dimension and complexity, but it’s the automotive visual cues that truly bring the Roadster’s design to life. At each of the lug tips sits a decorative recessed faux screw design, which adds a sporting edge to the overall form.
The shape and positioning of this screw, coupled with the flowing shape of the lug itself, works to evoke the recessed taillight design of the 1957 Chevrolet Corvette. In a field dominated by Eurocentric design influences, it’s a surprising slice of ‘50s Americana, but it’s only the first of the Roadster LM’s classic American touches.
The Cartier best replica watch Roadster LM is powered by the ETA 2892-A2-based Caliber 3110 automatic movement. While it may not carry the romance or prestige of the brand’s in-house powerplants, the Caliber 3110 offers reliable performance and easy servicing, with a 42-hour power reserve at a 28,800 bph beat rate. Although hidden by the solid caseback, the Caliber 3110 also offers unique finishing, including perlage across the bridges and a custom-signed rotor.
One of the Cartier Roadster series’ most innovative features was the inclusion of what may very well be the first factory quick-release strap system. Over the course of its production run, Cartier high quality best replica watches produced a spectrum of strap designs for the Roadster line in a broad range of colors, styles, and materials, all of which can easily be swapped at the press of a button. The centerpiece of the Roadster’s strap collection is a stainless steel H-link bracelet, which uses elongated, curved links to continue the case’s comfortably ergonomic wraparound effect.
The Most Exquisite Luxury Cartier Replica Watches also uses this bracelet as a venue to introduce contrasting finishes to the Roadster design, with recessed central link segments in smooth, even brushing. Taken as a whole, this bracelet is a charming, idiosyncratic mix of sporty and ornamental cues, but it does markedly increase the overall wrist presence of the watch thanks to a set of extended male endlinks. This particular Roadster LM is also equipped with a ridged black textile strap for a sportier feel, along with an alligator leather strap for a more classically upscale look.
