Thicker, wider and infinitely sportier, the new Santos de Cartier Chronograph Replica Watches has found an elegant solution to replace the classic two-pusher chronograph configuration with a modified version of its automatic 1904-CH MC calibre. Presented in three versions – solid 18k pink gold, steel and yellow gold bezel, and steel with a black ADLC bezel.
Characterised by a square case with visible screws, a shape that flew in the face of the fashion for round pocket Cartier Replica Watches, the Santos has gone down in history as the first pilot watch and a precursor of the gent’s wristwatch.
Instead of featuring the standard pair of chronograph pushers on the right side of the case, the Swiss Replica Watches Santos Chronograph features a discreet rectangular pusher on the left side of the case for the start/stop functions. Easily mistaken as a monopusher chronograph, the Santos is, in fact, a two-pusher chronograph with the reset function nestled inside the crown and activated by depressing the cabochon.
Immediately recognisable as a Cheap Cartier Replica timepiece, the dial conveys all the elapsed time information in impeccable style. The square region of the dial has a brushed silver texture contrasting to the snailed and slightly recessed backgrounds of the 30-second and 12-hour registers, and the smaller subsidiary seconds and date function at 6 o’clock.
For many, the incorporation of calibre 1904-CH MC was the really exciting news about this watch and it is a shame that the caseback is closed.
