Cartier manages to fuse a unique touch of French sophistication with a very liberal attitude towards design. Cartier’s love affair with fascinating shaped watches has lasted for a century. Unusual shapes, like the square Santos, the rectangular Tank, the barrel-shaped Tortue, or even the weird and wild 1967 Crash Cheap Replica Watches inspired by a Baignoire Allongée model that was purportedly mangled and melted in a car crash.
A HIGH JEWELLERY BATH FOR THE BAIGNOIRE ALLONGÉE
The precursor to what eventually became known as the Baignoire was designed in 1912 and earned its unusual name in the late 1950s thanks to its strong resemblance to a bathtub. The second part of its name – allongée – refers to Baignoire models with hyper-elongated cases.
The Baignoire Allongée Céladon model is housed in a medium white gold case studded with Swiss Fake Cartier Watches Paraiba tourmalines, emeralds and brilliant-cut diamonds. Arranged freely around the elongated oval case, the electric blue tourmalines and the intense green emeralds light up the case with an almost aquatic glow.
TANK CHINOISE RED
Two other models, the Tank Chinoise Red and Diagonale, are also included in the pre-SIHH appetisers and have been jazzed up with precious stones to emphasize their unusual shapes.In 2019 Luxury Cartier Replica Watches radically revisits the watch with a much longer and more elongated case in white gold transforming it from its original square shape into a rectangle.
To emphasize the Chinese connection and the unusual shape of the case, two lintels of bright red rubies are set at either of the case and framed by black enamel. The brancards of the inky-black lacquered dial are flanked by 164 brilliant-cut diamonds and the dial features two Roman numerals with an elongated VI to replicate the rectangular thrust of the design. The Tank Chinoise Red Cartier Replica is powered by a quartz movement.
Don’t bother hunting for this watch in Cartier’s Replica Watches archives because it is a new creation. Tapping into the sleek Art Deco aesthetic that has worked so well for the brand, the Diagonale plays with geometric shapes.
