As you might already know, my Cartier Santos Galbée XL Replica Watches is one of my favorite watches. I think a Cartier watch should always be a little smaller than average with a white/silver dial and black Roman numerals.On the other hand, the current large Cartier Santos in green or blue is all but that. However, I’m willing to give it a chance to see if it can change my mind after spending more time with it.
It now has that divisive polished bezel that flows into the brushed bracelet instead of being square like before.But I know many people who are okay with the current design. Heck, the current Santos might even be the most popular Santos to date. So let’s see if the large Cartier Santos replica watches first copy in green and blue can convince me.
Tinted and colorful gradient dials
On top of that, the colors have a nice gradient to them. They start lighter in the middle of the dial and deepen towards the edges, so it’s obvious that the darker look is what the Cartier replica watches for men designers were going for. The effect reminds me of the paint that BMW used on its cars.I liked it because it didn’t give it all away at once; it was classy.So yes, it’s a nice effect, but if you’re looking for an in-your-face blue or green dial on your Santos, these won’t be that.
Can you spot the color?
In that respect, we’ve deliberately tried to make the photos in this article look as realistic as possible. By that, I mean that Morgan, our photographer, paid extra attention to the representation of the colors of both dials. That’s why, unlike in press pictures, you might even struggle to see which color the dial is in some of the images.
I was afraid that the colors would be too bright because I didn’t think that would suit the style of the replica watches price. But again, there’s no need to be scared of that. Sometimes, it even almost looks like these new dials are entirely black. And that’s when it seems like an inverted version of the classic white Cartier dials with black Roman numerals.
Yes, it’s large, but…
And yes, there’s a noticeable difference in dial size. However, the current Santos has shorter lugs compared to the older generations. The current medium model measures just under 42mm from lug to lug, whereas my XL is 45.5mm long. So in practice, both watches wear pretty similarly on my 17cm wrist.
The large Santos replica watches for sale near me lives up to its name. It’s almost 40mm wide, so it’s much bigger than the medium size. But again, the lug-to-lug distance of 47.5mm isn’t the longest in the world.There’s no overhang from these lugs whatsoever.Again, that’s because of the short lugs and because the large Santos is still well under 10mm thick. What also helps is the dark dial, which always makes a watch look smaller compared to a lighter-colored dial.
A nice surprise
In conclusion, the large Cheap Cartier Santos Replica models with the green and blue dials positively surprised me. The colors are not audacious and daring as the brand mentions in its press release. But that’s good because Cartier matched the colors perfectly with the Santos’s classy and sporty style.
The date at six is something I could live without, but it’s not as disturbing as the date at four-thirty on my Galbée XL. I also like that this version of the Santos has lumed hands, which means you can read the time in the dark. That’s something I struggle to do with my non-lumed Santos.
I still prefer my more classically styled Santos Galbée XL, and I’d go for the current medium size if I had to choose a new one. But I enjoyed the colorful dials much more than I thought I would. Cartier Replica Watches Online designers tried to do something new for the Santos with these colors, and they executed it perfectly. It shows me that I should avoid always choosing classic designs and perhaps choose a more daring option in the future.
