Cartier‘s offerings went back to basics, or more specifically, back to its roots. Much of its line-up was instantly recognisable as Cartier Replica Watches For Sale, including the newly designed, cushion-shaped Drive de Cartier. Even the watches with a more modern bent, like the Santos 100 Carbon, will please traditionalists.In contrast, the bulk of the new watches shown at SIHH 2016 were of the more affordable variety.
Three Drive de Cartier models are available, all equipped with in-house movements. The basic is the automatic with date, equipped with the Replica Cartier Watches calibre 1904 MC. The date window does spoil the lines of the dial somewhat, but the overall aesthetic is still pleasing. Both of the dark dial versions are unusual as they have metallic finish printed numerals.
A bit fancier is the Drive de Cartier Second Timezone Day/Night, which has inside the same 1904 MC movement, but with the Cartier Replica Watches Swiss Movement addition of a module on top for the second time zone display. This takes the form of a fan-shaped, retrograde scale at 11 o’clock that is linked to the day and night display at four o’clock. An extra-large date display is at 12 o’clock. While this has increased functionality, it lacks the appealing simplicity of the time-only model.
The top of the line model is the Drive de Cartier Flying Tourbillon Discount Forum. This has inside the hand-wound movement made at Cartier’s workshop in Geneva, a calibre originally derived from a Roger Dubuis movement. Like the other watches in the high-end Fine Watchmaking line, this has a two-level dial made up of a guilloche base and a raised track for the hour numerals and minute markings.
