In 2019, Cartier released a new generation of Santos-Dumont watches, restored the iconic exposed screw bezel design, and offered three models of stainless steel, stainless steel and rose gold for the first time, only equipped with a quartz movement. Today, the brand has finally launched the long-awaited Cartier Santos-Dumont XL manual winding mechanical watch replica.
Case & Dial
That trend continues in the Cartier Santos-Dumont 46.6mm men’s watches fakes for 2020, which are available in three variations: 18k pink gold, two-tone with 18k pink gold and steel, and an all-steel variant. All termed “extra-large” by Cartier, they measure 46.6mm by 33.9mm and are an impressive 7.5mm-thick. That thin profile is attained through the use of an exceptionally thin, Piaget-derived Cartier 430MC caliber that measures only 2.15mm-thick. The case is retouched with brushed and polished finishes, with satin-finished top and sides and mirror-polished bezels.
The silver dial is adorned with solar radiation and combined with slender Roman numeral hour markers, creating a distinctive aesthetic.
Given that only the very latest ultra-thin movements are capable of stretching power reserve, this older (but proven) 430P/430MC caliber offers a shorter 38-hour power reserve matched to a slower 21,600bph operating frequency and is decorated with double “C” marks on the bridge and balance plate. In practice, that means you’ll want to be winding this beauty every single day — a gratifying chore, to be sure. This movement has an hour, minute and second display function.
One of the subtle differences between the new mechanical watch and last year’s quartz watch is the way the strap is assembled: metal inserts on both ends allow the strap to seamlessly fit the case.
My only small gripe with these Cartier Santos-Dumont 46.6mm watches replicas, as a watch-lover, is the fact that the crown is your only interaction and your only indicator of the presence of a hand-wound movement… To be fair, there’s also “mécanique” written in small fonts on the caseback. A running seconds would be as much a sacrilege as a date window on this design, but an open caseback, even with just a small aperture somewhere, revealing the bridges covered with the Cartier “C” all over, would have been a nice little touch. A running seconds window or power reserve on the back really would have been next level — but also likely would’ve entailed an increase in price. Cartier doesn’t appear to provide caseback images, so you’ll have to use your imagination to picture a solid caseback with some text on it.
Pricing for the Cartier Santos-Dumont XL Hand-Wind men’s watches replica is yet to be confirmed, but they should range around €4,700 for steel, a competitive €6,500 for two-tone, and €12,500 for the solid 18k pink gold version.
