The Many Faces Of The Legendary Cartier Santos 100 Watch

A third approach is to seek out a derivative cartier Santos 100 replica model. Either something as simple as one with a white face or full calendar movement, or an even drastic alteration such different hands, cases, or other features that practically make the Santos 100 a different watch altogether. Some of these can be quite appealing, others are obviously experiments from cartier roadster replica that did not quite make it (lots of gold or diamond for example). It is interesting however to see what Cartier has given us over the years.

Don't expect much to change with the Santos 100, companies tend not to mess with a proven formula. Years of watches don't signify an evolution, but rather minor revisions from time to time along with technological improvements. The history is fascinating, and itself is telling of the progress made by the watch making industry. What is my pick? I like the modern approach to the time-test classic. The thinnest white hands on the minimalist functional face with, with conveniences such as automatic movements, sapphire crystals and high quality comfortable bracelets. That will do nicely for me.

For those collectors who gobble up each new Santos 100, keep up the love; for the rest of you consider adding some manner of Cartier Santos 100 to your collection to know what all the fuss is about.The internal waiting list at Cartier itself is about a year to buy the replica Of The Moon black ceramic version of the Santos 100 replica. Hitting retailers at about the time we publish this post, it is going to be the hot Cartier for a while. What is really impressive is that the ceramic case is polished to match the steel version of the watch in a fantastically satisfying manner. Sporty and modern, yet traditional and functional, the replica Of The Moon is perhaps the most interesting member of the already interesting new Santos 100 collection with its in-house made Cartier Santos 100 replica (reviewed here).

The Cartier Santos 100 'Santos 100 is one of the latest iterations of the Santos 100 line, and when I saw it in person, I was taken. I'd started to be drawn more to the Santos 100 line this year in general. At the same time, I've started to be drawn more to white-dialed watches - which meant that the Santos 100 that everyone knows and loves wasn't quite my cup of tea. That was, until Cartier changed the cup. Upon the arrival of the replica Santos 100 'Santos 100, with its bright white dial and dual-register layout, and I became a fan. While the one I reviewed here came in yellow gold, I think I'd more likely opt for a different model. That said, I'd have a very hard time choosing between the steel model with blue dial ($9,000) and the titanium version with a white dial ($11,400). The Santos 100 has been one of the most popular sport watches since its walk on the moon, and this latest version manages to be simultaneously familiar and refreshingly different. This particular model pulls together some great elements from others in its lineup, meaning you can recognize where the watch came from, while still rocking a more modern feeling design. And hey, even if you're a traditionalist and go for the black dial, you're still getting some great design and history, paired up with an excellent movement.
