Important Early Men’s Replica Watches

Most Replica Watches lovers know that Cartier was an early pioneer of the wristwatch, especially for men. It was not until the 20th century that wristwatches enjoyed any real “mass production” and the transition from pocket to wristwatch did not occur overnight. When Cartier entered the wristwatch market it was still a product for the very wealthy. Small mechanical movements were still rather exotic, and a timepiece was still a serious investment for most mainstream consumers. At a special Cartier exhibit located at the Grand Palais in Paris, we were able to view some of the earliest men’s Cheap Replica Watches ever made.


When the wristwatch started its life in the public eye it was mostly considered a women’s item. An extension of the bracelet, the wristwatch was seen as being dainty and a lot like jewelry. Even so, Cartier believed in the future of the wristwatch. Cartier started making watches in first decade of the 20th century and in the 1900s also began producing the first men’s watches. What you see here are a range of very early Cartier men’s watches re-acquired by Cartier Replica Watches with models from as early as 1911. Though records indicate that Cartier began producing men’s wristwatches from as early at 1904.


As the story goes, Cartier produced its first wristwatch for friend and aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont who wanted a watch he could wear while flying. This was less than a year after aviation even began when the Wright brothers flew the first powered flight in 1903. It was 1904 that Cartier produced a watch for Santos-Dumont. Unfortunately, the actual piece that Cartier Replica made for Santos-Dumont has been lost to history. However, Cartier does have an extremely early Santos-Dumont watch from 1912. Square and in gold on a leather strap, one can examine a design that has endured for over 100 years.


The Santos-Dumont represented a new type of design that followed a trend of timepieces that moved away from the traditional round cases of pocket watches. After the square Santos-Dumont watch Cartier created the Tonneau watch in 1906 and later the Tortue. All of the early Cheap Replica Watches feature tonneau, square, or rectangular case designs. Produced one year before the Santos-Dumont, Cartier has a Tonneau wristwatch from 1911. Also in gold, the dial has a beautiful light guilloche engraving that was popular in other Cartier products at the time.


What I find interesting is the distinctive Cartier crown that showed up so early. With a blue sapphire crystal cabochon, it is a look often imitated and very indicative of Cartier in modern times. Each of these timepieces offers a lovely restrained design that is imminently modern. At the time Replica Watches was an early adopter of a more minimalist and clean aesthetic in all of their creations. Logically, the company embraced art deco very early on and their interpretation of an art deco timepiece offered a style more minimalistic than other items they were creating such as jewelry and clocks.


Another thing I find very interesting is the consistency of the traditional Cartier dial. We call it traditional today of course but looking at these timepieces you see dedication to a simple light dial, pomme-shaped blued-steel hands, and exclusively Roman numeral hour markers. There is one place where you can observe a small amount of design experimentation aside from the case shape – note the small difference in style in how Cheap Replica Watches presents their logo across the various watches. Early on it was clear that Cartier mostly preferred clean serif typefaces, but there was some experimentation with a more cursive text.

The Cheap Replica Watches combines a high-luxury sense of design and prestige with the presumed durability of a sports watch. It is either? Is it both? Those are good questions, and ones that are okay to ask, given that Cartier has been among the few major luxury watch brands who have been very consistent in making sure that their dressy lifestyle watches for men are almost always founded on sporty principles.
Think about the major Cartier watch collections such as the Santos, Pasha, Roadster, Tank, and Calibre. Of course there are exceptions but these timepieces are at least inspired or themed on things like flying, driving, diving, etc… Yes Replica Watches has extended these creations into some very high-end spheres of horology, but at their heart they are all basically sport watches in some form or another.

When the original Cartier Calibre watch came out, I was sure to point out the sporty/dress lifestyle nature of the design. Now, with the Cartier Replica Watches, Cartier takes that sense of sport even further with a version of the Calibre specifically meant for diving. So would you take this Cartier Calibre ref. CRW7100052 in solid 18k rose gold diving? Neither would I, but they do offer a steel version if you feel that submerging your Cartier in ocean water is a good idea. So why does the watch exist?

Let’s first start with the premise that most luxury watch brands love the idea of having sport watches, and this is by no means a first for Cartier Replica. This is merely the latest in a long line of high-end timepieces meant to suggest a sporty lifestyle even if the owner’s idea of going diving is just a dip in the pool. Rolex’s Submariner started life as a professional dive Cheap Cartier Replica, but today is something that is so much better made than the original, but also an item that its owners are much more inclined to baby.
In my opinion, the situation is very similar with the Cartier Calibre Diver. In theory, you have a 300m water resistant dive watch but in reality you have a luxury SUV whose owners aren’t keen to take it off paved roads. As a luxury toy, it is certainly satisfying, especially for those who want to combine high design and maintain a degree of manliness. While you might take a different position on the matter, it is true that most Western men feel that dress watches are too boring to wear on a “casual basis.”

The diver’s bezel is a major element which allows Cartier to give the Replica Cartier,and the other major element is the depth rating of the watch. Offering 300 meters of water resistance, the Calibre Diver, is a true “dive watch.” Though this element gets a bit interesting.I may have mentioned this in the past, but I really like the idea of thin dive watches. At 42mm wide and 11mm thick, the Replica Watches wears very nicely on the wrist with an admirable width and a very svelte profile for a dive watches.

On the dial, you see a few changes compared to the standard Cartier Calibre. At first glance, they look the same, but looking at them side by side, you can see a redesigned minute track, subsidiary seconds dial, and increased amount of lume. It isn’t that one is more attractive than the Cheap Replica Watches, but it is important to be aware of the differences. Each is quite legible and offers that half Roman numerals and half baton hour markers style dial.
