Hands On With the Luxury Replica Cartier High Jewellery Koinobori Secret Watch in Asia

The Cartier High Jewelry Koinobori Secret watch is a unique creation from the celebrated French maison. Launched in Hong Kong last year at Watches & Wonders, the region’s premier watch event, this one-of-a-kind bracelet holds a beautiful secret: a hidden watch dial.

 

For this latest piece, Cheap replica Cartier watches for sale found inspiration in traditional Japanese culture. An allegory of the passing of time, an ocean wave inspired the brand to create the high jewellery Koinoboru secret watch, where the balletic journey of carps is depicted, as in a traditional Japanese painting. Koinobori, literally means “carp streamer” in Japanese. The carp-shaped wind socks are flown as a tradition in Japan to celebrate the Tango no sekku festival.

The fake Cartier watches 18-carat white-gold cuff is formed using sixteen oval-cut rubies from Mozambique, each nearly one carat, totalling 16.66 carats. The rubies gleam brightly amongst the sparkling tide of diamonds on the bracelet.

luxury Replica Cartier Clé De Cartier Watch Hands-On

For 2015, Cartier has released the brand new Clé de Cartier collection of watches for both men and women. We included the Clé de Cartier as one of our top 10 new watches for SIHH 2015, and for good reason – it sports not only a completely new case design, but also a new movement. While the 2015 Clé watches are exclusively going to be offered cheap replica cartier watches in 18k gold (various colors), we anticipate that Cartier will flesh out the Clé de Cartier collection more over the next few years and likely offer steel models as well. So let’s go over the Cartier Clé de Cartier timepieces for 2015, and see what makes Cartier’s new dress watch collection interesting.

Cartier-Cle-de-Cartier-White-Gold-40mm_

“Clé” stands for “key” and refers to the crown of the new watch which isn’t your typical round crown. Instead, the Cartier Clé de Cartier watches have long crowns that offer an interesting tactile experience. The crowns lock into place and, when turned, feel like you are literally winding the key of an old clock or pocket watch. Set into the “key style” crowns are blue sapphire cabochons – a hallmark of most Cartier timepieces.

While Cartier has designed the Clé de Cartier collection for both men and women, the larger model is 40mm wide and what guys will gravitate to. The case is more or less tonneau-shaped with a round dial. The case is also curved and sits on the wrist with incredible comfort. Cartier shows their unique ability to offer a refined, unique, yet familiar look right off the bat. There is nothing I find more exciting than a brand new family of watches that will be built out to include a range of models over the years. Cartier was last able to accomplish this with new model families such as the Ballon Bleu and the Calibre.

_Cartier-Cle-de-Cartier-White-Gold-40mm_

Looking at the Cartier Clé de Cartier case carefully, you can admire the elegance and sophistication Cartier wanted to make sure it evoked. Cartier was certainly successful in producing a design that incorporates a series of very interesting lines when looked at closely, as well as a shape that is attractive when viewed from afar.

Cartier-Cle-de-Cartier-White-Gold-40mm

There is a certain “retro-ness” to the Cartier Clé de Cartier that comes from the tonneau-style case that has thick sides which slope down and become the lugs. This creates the sense that the watch is just a little bit larger than it is, and at 40mm wide (in its largest form), I think it makes for a handsome men’s model. I can’t overstate how comfortable the Clé is on the wrist. This is due to the curvature of the case which allows the watch to sit low and snug on the wrist.

-Cartier-Cle-de-Cartier-White-Gold-40mm_

The comfort is also emphasized by the available bracelet (as seen in the video) – which is also a totally new design. In this day and age, new watch bracelet designs are rare – which is a shame. Only brands like Cartier seem to even be coming out with new bracelets, while most other brands seem to take the route of pairing watches with straps. The Cartier Clé de Cartier is available on alligator straps but, in my opinion, is best suited to the bracelet which has been specifically designed for the Clé.

_Cartier-Cle-de-Cartier-White-Gold-40mm-8-

What I first noticed about the Clé de Cartier’s bracelet is how thin it is. Many metal bracelets today have very thick links – especially in contrast to more historic bracelets. To see an elegantly thin bracelet is not only welcome but means that you’ll have a very comfortable experience on the wrist. Thick metal bracelets are often synonymous with sport watches and thinner bracelets are more common on dress watches. As new dress watches with bracelets are more and more uncommon, it is almost surprising to see a new one done right.

I’ve mentioned in the past that the production of new bracelets requires a lot of R&D as well as the production of a lot of additional parts. Only brands with an economy of scale like best replica Cartier watches, Rolex, TAG Heuer, Omega, etc… can feasibly enter the world of making new bracelets. In a world of low production numbers and limited editions – we can’t expect to enjoy the benefits of new case and bracelet designs all that often.

Cartier-Cle-de-Cartier-White-Gold_40mm

Returning to the Cartier Clé de Cartier, let’s look at the dial. Here, you see a lot of typical Cartier lines and features, but with enough new little details to make the Clé de Cartier collection distinct from the rest of what Cartier has to offer. Black Roman numerals? Check. Blued-steel hands? Yup. I actually thought the hands were black original (and that would have been cool), but they are blued steel. You also have a perfectly symmetrical dial with the date window being placed at six o’clock. Oh, I should mention that, while the hands and hour markers are black on the men’s models, the smaller models for women have blue hour markers and hands.

Cartier-Cle-de-Cartier_White-Gold-40mm_

While the men’s Clé de Cartier models are 40mm wide (available in 18k white, pink, and yellow gold for 2015), the women’s models come in either a 31mm- or 35mm-wide size. All have automatic movements. Speaking of movements, in addition to the Clé de Cartier’s new design, we get a new movement. It is the in-house made luxury fake Cartier 1847 MC automatic watches. Similar to the 1904 MC movement, the 1847 MC has central hands for the minutes, hours, and seconds, as well as an semi-instant-jumping date. The automatic rotor winds in both directions, and it has a power reserve of 42 hours, operating at 4Hz.

Cartier-Cle-de-Cartier-White-Gold-40mm-

In 18k gold, the Cartier Clé de Cartier will have a lot of competition at its price level – but then again, it does have that Cartier caché to it. I think that Cartier will be rather successful with a model such as this and as a dress watch or casual elegant watch, it is a win. Now, let’s just wait for some steel options. Price for the Cartier Clé de Cartier is $21,000 for the 18k white gold model on a leather strap seen here, $19,700 for the exact fake Cartier watches rose gold version on leather strap, and $36,600 in yellow gold on bracelet.

Cartier Clé Automatic Skeleton Watch

Ever since Cartier released the 41mm-wide version of the Cartier Clé watch with the “mysterious hours” complication (hands-on here), I’ve been quietly in love with this still newer case design as the foundation of interesting, more high-end models that are nevertheless simple in their presentation (the Cartier Clé collection as a whole was introduced at SIHH 2015). SIHH 2016 sees the debut of the Clé de Cartier Automatic Skeleton, which takes Cartier’s now popular in-house-made and distinctly skeletonized watch +movements a step further by adding automatic winding – a first for a movement of this type produced by cheap replica Cartier watches.

Cartier-Cle-Skeleton-Automatic-watch_

Skeletonized mechanical watches are enjoying a sort of new golden age because the visually very satisfying decoration process also happens to help watch lovers justify why they spend the big bucks on luxury timepieces. It isn’t always enough to have a mental reminder that your high-end timepiece contains a nice movement – sometimes you want a constant reminder on your wrist. Moreover, the skeletonization process offers a very real view into the operation of these tiny machines which track the time. The emotional enjoyment one receives from viewing the moving gears, beating regulation system, and hand-finished surfaces should never be underestimated.

-Cartier-Cle-Skeleton-Automatic-watch-

The challenge in offering a skeletonized movement is in making it both visually attractive, as well as legible and practical. Sometimes movements that were never meant to be skeletonized receive the decorative process and aren’t that amazing-looking as a result. Over the last few years, we’ve seen more and more movements designed from the ground up with skeletonization in mind. Cartier isn’t shy about the fact that it meant for the in-house calibre 9621 MC to be cut up and decorated. In fact, the signature Roman numeral hour markers are actually part of the movement bridge structure itself.

_Cartier-Cle-Skeleton-Automatic-watch_

With that said, the challenge in maintaining a high degree of legibility in the Cartier Clé Automatic Skeleton is due to the fact that the face is really a fake Cartier watches skeletonized dial that sits on top of a skeletonized movement. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this from Cartier, and the result is something that does feel beautiful albeit impractical from the perspective of daily utility. Granted, this isn’t going to be the most precise-to-read timepiece you’ll probably own, but the blued steel sword-style hands over the full scale of Roman numeral or baton hour markers make the Cartier Clé Automatic Skeleton watch convenient to live with, at least.

With its retro-style cusion-shaped case and wide lugs, the 41mm-wide (water resistant to 30 meters) size feels good even if the strap feels a bit proportionally narrow given the overall size of the case. The case is also a stately 11.45mm thick, which is a size that makes itself known, but also isn’t overly thick by any means. Of course, despite all my talk of practicality, the Cartier Clé Automatic Skeleton arrives exclusively in a 950 palladium case. If you prefer, Cartier also offers a version of the Cartier Clé Automatic Skeleton with brilliant-cut diamonds set on the case.

-Cartier-Cle-Skeleton-Automatic-watch_

The in-house-made Cartier 9621 MC is both attractive and practical, operating at 4Hz (28,800bph) with about 48 hours of power reserve. Produced from 165 parts, the automatic rotor is also highly skeletonized being produced from 22k white gold. Given the gold’s weight, I am sure it provides enough mass for appropriate automatic winding efficiency.

Don’t forget that, because this is a cheap replica Cartier Clé case, you get the nifty Clé (“key”) winding key-style crown. This rectangular-shaped crown has a fixed resting position to fit evenly with the case and a very interesting tactile experience when being wound. Yes, it is fun to use the crown, but I prefer not being forced to use the crown all the time, which is why I am happy the 9621 MC movement is an automatic.

_Cartier-Cle-Skeleton-Automatic-watch-

Minor downsides of any dramatically skeletonized watch such as this is that your wrist will always provide a backdrop as your peer through the timepiece. The notion of being able to see right through the movement and inspect all of its little angles is great, but oftentimes you need to beautify your own wrist in order to make it work properly. The approach Arnold & Son took with their Time Pyramid is one that I would like more companies to explore. The newest version of the Time Pyramid in steel has a piece of “one-way mirror” that when viewed from the dial side is literally a sort of silvery mirror, and when viewed from the caseback offers an only marginally opaque view through the rear of the watch. Just throwing that out there because I know how sexy watches like the Cartier Clé Automatic Skeleton (and many other skeletonized watches) look in the abstract – only to result in a different consumer opinion once they put the watches on their own wrists.

In any event, Cartier does not exactly venture deep into new territory with the cheap fake Cartier Clé Automatic Skeleton, but this is nevertheless a useful and beautiful evolution that appropriately extends the focus on their haute horology work in the right direction – for those who can budget for timepieces at this level. Price is $56,000 in palladium and $119,000 with diamonds.

Hands-On With The Fake Cartier Tank Anglaise Watches

The Cartier Tank is one of the most recognizable watch designs of all time. With the classic, linear design, the Tank never goes out of favor. Today I am going to review the Tank Anglaise, the latest addition to the Tank family, which is an updated version of the classic.

Cartier Tank Anglaise

First, a little background on the Cartier Tank. The prototype for the Cartier Tank was designed during the First World War in 1917 by Louis Cartier, with the watch breaking onto the market in 1919. The industrial design was inspired by the horizontal section of the Renault tank. It is traditionally thought that, the prototype was given in 1918 to General John Joseph Pershing who was the commanding officer of the American Expeditionary Force in Europe. Sadly, the prototype has since disappeared, but I hope that one day it will come up at auction (seriously, how cool would that be?).

Cartier Tank Anglaise_

Over the past century, the Tank has evolved into many different forms and a number of lines of the original version were born from the initial design. However, Cheap Replica Cartier Watches has maintained the integrity of the design with each collection, which (in my opinion) makes this watch one of the most appealing watches on the market today. Although a lot of the modern versions use a quartz movement, even the biggest technical watch enthusiasts can’t deny the Tank’s appeal.

Cartier Tank Anglaise__

The Tank Anglaise is the latest line of the Cartier Tank Collection with both men’s and women’s watches. It was released in 2012, and the Tank Anglaise comes in a range of metals and sizes, as well as movements. The Anglaise, like the Americaine and Française before it, is an refreshed version of the original Tank watch. It is much bolder, which seems to be the trend these days at Best Fake Cartier with the Clé de Cartier and Ronde “Croisiere” Cruise Collection (to name a couple) launched earlier this year. The Anglaise differs mainly in the curvilinear case and special crown design. The case measures 39.2 mm x 29.8 mm with a thickness of 9.5 mm and sits nicely on my wrist. The updated case features an ergonomic design that softens the overall look and feel of the watch, moving away from the rectilinear Art Deco roots of the original Tank. This design is definitely untraditional, but it is certainly a fresh one.

-Cartier Tank Anglaise

The other major change in the design of this watch is the enclosed crown within the bezel and band. The nine-sided crown is still set with a sapphire, however it is now a table-cut stone as opposed to the classic cabochon usually used in Cheap Replica Cartier Wrist Watches. Additionally, the crown is set within the band and bezel, creating a sort of cage-like contraption that holds the crown. This element is an unusual characteristic that you don’t often see used in watch design. There is a recess in the case flank that allows you to pull out the crown, which is then operated from the enclosed, nine-sided outer ring. It’s an unusual system but one well within the Cartier philosophy of combining a technical feature with aesthetics and playfulness.

Cartier-Tank Anglaise

The dial is the most traditional part of the watch design, with the silvered guilloché dial with Roman numerals and secret signature, and there are the familiar Tank sword hands in blued steel. The only criticism of the watch that I have is that the date is too small to read and is disproportionate to the rest of the dial given the size of the watch.

Cartier-Tank Anglaise-

The Tank Anglaise is available with an automatic movement or a quartz movement. The automatic ETA movement, used in the large model seen here, runs well. However, it should be noted that the XL model features the in-house Cartier 1904MC automatic movement. This is a relatively new trend with Cartier, so hopefully this will be the case for the next generation of Tank watches (maybe for the 100th anniversary in 2017?).

Overall, this is an exciting collection and it really emphasizes Cartier’s ability to maintain a classic but innovative aesthetic. For more information, please visit the Replica Cartier Watches For Sale.

Cheap Replica Rotonde de Cartier Astrotourbillon Skeleton

Later this month, Fake Watches Cartier will unveil a skeletonized version of their Astrotourbillon. This new iteration uses caliber MC 9461 which is an open-worked version of the original caliber MC 9451 that took Cariter 5 years to develop. The Astorbuillon features a tourbillon cage that circles the dial once every 60-seconds. Ingeniously, the balance bridge which is shaped like an arrow, points to the chapter ring as it rotates to indicate seconds.

Cartier-Astrotourbillon-Skeleton-

The case is 47 mm in diameter, like the original Astrotourbillon, but overall the aesthetic is completely different now that the dial has been removed. All that is holding the movement in place is three supports from the main plate, two of which are in the shaped as Roman numerals to mark 12 and 6 o’clock, respectively. The result, is a perfect view of the movement, and the tourbillon, as it appears to float around the dial, all while the balance wheel, spring and escapement are oscillating within the tourbillon cage.

The Replica Rotonde de Cartier Astrotourbillon Skeleton will be officially unveiled at SIHH 2015 and will be available in a limited of 100 pieces Fake Watches Cartier In White Gold, 20 pieces in platinum with diamond bezel and case, and 5 pieces in platinum with a diamond studded bracelet.

Fake Watches Calibre de Cartier Diver with Manufacture Caliber 1904MC

Cartier has just unveiled their very first dive watch! OK some of you might argue Cartier already have a “dive watch” in their collection, the Pasha. However the Pasha is not a true dive watch, and certainly not by today’s standards. The new Replica Watches Calibre de Cartier Diver, which will officially be introduced at the SIHH 2014, will be Cartier’s first real dive watch!

calibre-de-cartier-diver-

The new Diver is based on the Calibre de Cartier, which was introduced in 2010. This was also the first Fake Watches Cartier to feature the new in-house movement caliber 1904 MC, which is the same movement they use in the new Calibre de Cartier Diver. A robust movement, with two main spring barrels, delivering 48 hours of power reserve. You might think that’s not much for two main spring barrels, however this was done intentionally to get as little fluctuation in the main spring torque as possible, so the chronometric rates are as stable as possible. In laymen language… it’s a very good movement!

The Calibre de Cartier Diver meets all official specifications of a dive watch, as fixed in ISO 6425. It has the required unidirectional rotating bezel, is water-resistant to 300 meters and the hands and markers on the bezel have applied superluminova for good legibility in the dark (or when submerged). Also the HUGE Roman 12 and the small off center seconds feature the superluminova for bright night reading of time, AND to see if the watch is still running and to check your dive time (both ISO requirements).

calibre-de-cartier-diver

To prevent any accidental rotation or alteration of the dive-time indication, the bezel turns in one direction only. It has been designed with 120 clicks to enable adjustment to a half-minute, with a clear sound signal during its rotation.

When underwater, diver’s watches can be subjected to very high pressures and extreme conditions like salt water, thermal shock, etc. The Replica Watches Calibre de Cartier Diver  For Sale is fitted with a thick crystal, a solid screw back, oversized seals and a screw-in crown to ensure water-resistance to 300 meters.

Cartier’s style is often described as refined, sometimes even feminine. This new Replica Watches Cartier Diver Online is everything but refined or feminine, as it’s bold, rugged and masculine. And I’m not only talking about its looks, as it’s a watch that can be used for both everyday wear AND extreme conditions! In order to meet with the requirements of ISO 6425 – norm for “Diver’s Watch” label – it had to go through a series of extremely rigorous tests.

calibre-de-cartier-diver_

The bezel is ADLC coated, which is a coating exclusive to Best Sale Replica Cartier. The case back is closed and engraved with “Diver’s watch 300 m” – this is only allowed when a (dive) watch meets all ISO 6425 criteria.

The butterfly effect: Cheap Replica Cartier launches the Tourbillon Mystérieux Azuré

A spectacular new pendant from Best Replica Watches Cartier features both a mystery double tourbillon and an impressive Sri Lankan sapphire

cartier-1

 

Rising interest in increasingly complex women’s watches has been widely reported, but in the world of haute joaillerie watches the hardware often takes a backseat.
Which makes pieces like the Replica Watches Cartier Tourbillon Mystérieux Azuré all the more exciting: a beautiful pendant watch that fully embraces the incredible calibre 9463 MC as its star attraction. The gemstones and art deco butterfly design are far from incidental, but this high jewellery watch makes a serious feature of its horological credentials.

cartier-2

Whilst traditional mystery clocks have floating hands, Fake Watches Cartier For Sale Online has gone several steps further by ‘suspending’ the double tourbillon in an aperture above the hands. It looks deceptively straightforward, but the technological know-how that goes into mystery movements is immense.
This particular watch, by way of example, took Cartier’s team a total of 2,050 man-hours to produce.

cartier-3

In basic terms, it works like this: the tourbillon is held in sapphire glass discs encircled with metal teeth, thus allowing the whole thing to rotate and create the illusion of the tourbillon’s weightlessness.
The lucky owner (singular – this is a unique piece) can admire the calibre 9463 MC through the transparent caseback. The layout is the inverse of the calibre 9454 MC used in the Replica Watches Rotonde de Cartier Double Mystery Tourbillon wristwatch from SIHH 2013, which featured the hands above the aperture.

Cartier’s SIHH showing had somewhat of a mystery clock theme. The men’s Cheap Fake Wacthes Rotonde de Cartier Astromystérieux (above) has an aperture in which the escapement, balance-wheel, gear train, and barrel all appear to float. Meanwhile, a dragon curls around a pair of floating hands in the Dragon Mystérieux, as well as on a panther pendant.

cartier-4

The Tourbillon Mystérieux Azuré is shaped like a geometric butterfly, with ‘wings’ set with slices of onyx and sapphires – although it could just as easily be said to resemble an exotic bird; it’s almost phoenix-shaped. The pièce de résistance, gem-wise, is an enormous, detachable 25.93-carat oval-shaped Ceylon sapphire suspended beneath the case. It’s all held on an art deco, diamond-studded chain – and word on the street is that it’s already been snapped up.
