Cartier introduced a watch that I considered a hit, the Cartier Drive De Replica. Slim, refined, elegant, perfectly proportioned, featuring a nice engine… Still, this watch might be problematic for some.
The Drive de Cartier, introduced first in time-and-date and dual-time, was a testimony to the brand’s DNA, with athat was not round, not squared, not tonneau… but shaped like only Cartier can do. Elegant, masculine, refined, pure, slightly vintage and a bit motor-oriented: a gentlemen’s watch.
While this slim edition of the Cartier Replica Watches might be smaller, more elegant and powered by a Piaget movement, some won’t like its relatively plain dial – there are only 2 hands – making it too understated and some won’t be able to afford it.Another one, perfectly balanced and with just enough complications was introduced, the Drive De Cartier Moon Phases.
The Moon Phases edition sticks to the 40mm cushion-shaped box. Available in steel this time – and also in 18k pink gold IWC Replica Watches– it measures 12.15mm in height, meaning that it won’t be a slim watch on the wrist. However, as usual with Cartier, the case has been designed to be comfortable and to feel slimmer than it is on paper, with relatively slim casebands – the thickness is placed on the domed caseback.
