Cartier is announcing the release of two classics refreshed in a black ADLC coating. Not the first pieces from the brand done in a carbon coating, the Cartier Santos 100 Carbon and the Cartier Ballon Blue De Cartier Carbon watches retain the brand’s storied heritage while offering buyers a blacked-out piece. Though not really new or original, the black cases add a younger and more contemporary flair to these classic watches. Fans of Cartier will appreciate the ruggedness that these models afford while keeping in line with their classy appeal, along with the ADLC protection and whatever perceived “edge” a black coating brings with it.
At the time of its release many fans were skeptical, but grew to love the ADLC and its durable attributes. Here was a Cartier you could maybe even wear to the gym without babying it or worrying about scratches. Cartier Replica Watches claims that the ADLC is superior to PVD coating, and the increased scratch-resistance and an amazingly hard surface are just a few of its benefits which also include increased shock-resistance. You might not equate these elements with your typical Cartier, but here you have them in full force along with two renowned styles.The Cartier Santos 100 Carbon comes as a “large model” in an ADLC-coated steel case measuring 51.1mm x 41.3mm.
The other new release, the Ballon Bleu De Cartier Carbon is also housed in an ADLC-coated steel case that is 42mm wide. Each model features lume-treated sword hands so while you don’t get the classic Cartier Replica blue, you do get increased legibility. Water resistance is 3 bar, and both are topped off with sapphire crystals. As always, the crowns receive special treatment with the Cartier Ballon Bleu Carbon featuring the blue synthetic spinel cabochon and the Cartier Santos 100 Carbon with a blue faceted synthetic spinel.
Each watch is outfitted with the in-house calibre 1847 MC. The automatic 1847 MC features a 42-hour power reserve. The Cartier Santos 100 Carbon and the Ballon Bleu De Cheap Cartier Replica Carbon represent a shift forward in design attitude while amassing even more fans with their newly added in-house movements. I am hard-pressed to find a Cartier watch that I don’t appreciate in at least some way, and each of these models maintain their distinctive attributes while offering something new and fresh in the Cartier line.
Of all the watches that debuted at last year’s SIHH watch fair in Geneva, perhaps the one I least expected was a dive watch from Cartier. And it turned out to be one of the coolest new Cartier Replica Watches in recent years. In this article from my blog,I give you the scoop on Cartier’s foray into the world of “real” sports watches.
The Cartier Calibre de Cartier Diver is an unmistakably masculine watch for both everyday wear and extreme conditions; it meets the challenge of combining the classical Cartier Replica style with the technical requirements necessary to be considered a true divers’ watch under the international standard ISO 6425. To meet this standard, the watch must meet eight criteria for reliability and pass a series of extremely rigorous tests.
Unidirectional turning bezel
To prevent any accidental rotation or alteration of the dive-time indication, the bezel turns in only one direction. It has been designed with 120 notches to enable adjustment to a half-minute, with a clear sound signal during its rotation. For greater visibility, the markers signaling each five-minute period are clearly indicated.
Display in the dark
The Calibre de Cartier Diver can be clearly read deep below the surface due to the Super-LumiNova applied to its dive-time indicators, hour and minute hands, pre-selection device and small seconds counter.
Water-resistant to 300 meters
When underwater, diving watches can be subjected to very high pressures and extreme conditions. For protection, the cartier replica watches swiss movement is fitted with a thick crystal, a screwed caseback, oversized seals and a screw-down crown that ensure water-resistance to 300 meters. The watch has demonstrated its resistance to saltwater after immersion in a solution of sodium chloride at 18° C – 25° C for 24 hours. Furthermore, after spending 50 hours at a depth of 30 centimeters at 18° C – 25° C, it continues to function perfectly underwater.Despite its sportiness, the watch is still a Cartier. Cheap Cartier Replica would never release a watch that was overly massive or heavy, so reducing the thickness of the case was a technical and aesthetic challenge. The manufacture’s watchmakers, as always, took care to maintain a balance of dimensions. They have produced an authentic divers’ watch, without sacrificing everyday comfort on the wrist, in a balanced case measuring just 11 mm in thickness. It features a contrast of satin and polished finishes, a turning bezel coated with ADLC and bordered with fluting that recalls the interior of the bezel of the original Cartier Replica Watches, launched in 2010. This is a clear sign of its pedigree, just like the oversized, luminescent Roman numeral “XII” at the 12 o’clock position.
