Luxury Cartier Santos-Dumont Replica was originally launched last year and comes in two sizes-both with a quartz movement-and can now be equipped with a manual-winding mechanical movement in a larger but not too large case. The elegant design conveys the spirit of the original vintage, only changing the size and movement.
Despite the label “XL”, the size of the case is 46.6 mm x 33.9 mm and the height is only 7.5 mm. The case is large enough to be used as an everyday watch, even if it is worn casually, the proportions of the case are large and flat, giving it an elegant silhouette on the wrist.
Even if it is relatively large according to the dress fake watch standard, the simple dial and clean lines of the case also mean that it can perfectly complete the work of the dress watch.
Although the case looks a little curved on the wrist, it is actually flat, but while ensuring good ergonomics, it creates the illusion of a curved case.
Even if the case is simple, it has excellent details that give it visual depth. The baffle is not flat, but slightly inclined, with deep recessed screws. The Cartier Replica dial is also located below the bezel. Coupled with the curved lugs, the result is a proper split design that is flat but not flat.
