If you know cartier calibre de cartier replica-work you are well familiar with the specific style of the brand – bold Arabic numerals, sapphire cabochons in the crown etc. For the Calibre Cartier decided to created a very masculine, quite bold and very attractive package. Stainless steel case (comes also in steel-gold and full gold versions) measures 42mm in diameter and 13mm in thickness. It comes with set of bold and highly curved lugs, heptagonal crown with blue cabochon, protected by screw-in crown guards, sapphire back and sapphire, domed front glass, set inside a polished-brushed bezel rim.
You can buy yourself the replica cartier calibre de cartier steel on either steel bracelet (nice, massive and well finished) or with a black alligator leather strap, smoothly integrated with the case. While the strap’s overall quality is good, the issue lies with the clasp. The fold-over buckle is too big, snaps very tightly and, because there are no safety buttons, you simply have to rip it off in order to open. It also secures the strap in a very bizarre way, where you have to cross the strap over the loop and then fold it back. Strange, and almost as if Cartier focused so much on the case and the movement, that the strap passed by unnoticed.
Dial comes in two options for the steel case – sporty black and more elegant white. Both are adorned with outer minute ring, set of Arabic indices in the upper half (with bold XII at the top), open date window at 3 o’clock, small seconds sub-dial at 6 and a pair of central hands. The composition is monochromatic black&white, with cartier calibre de cartier silver dial black leather replica watch some luminova to glow in the dark. I do like the design a lot – it has plenty of character and boldness to it, except maybe an open window for the date disk, which just isn’t my cup of tea. I see some automotive spirit in the design (especially in the case shape) and the quality is just superb.
The best conclusion I can think of for this review is that if not already, you should pay more attention to Cartier’s watchmaking side. If a brand can offer products ranging from the basic mechanical piece (the Calibre) all the way up to High Complications and concept pieces (like the ID Two, using Calibre case made of sapphire) it deserves respect. Especially, if that products represent true value and quality. Calibre de Cartier from this text (steel, leather) costs around 7.500USD and you have to add another 650USD for the bracelet.
