I already have the perfect replica Cartier Santos Galbée XL in my collection, and I’m not too fond of blacked-out watches. So I thought I had nothing to fear from the stainless steel 1:1 fake Cartier Santos-Dumont with its black lacquer dial and case finish. Well, I couldn’t have been any more wrong because this watch is a true black beauty. On paper, it looked like a copy watch that was trying too hard, but in person, it totally won me over. Let’s take a look at how that happened.
A friend of the show already came to the Fratello offices earlier this year to proudly show us his rose gold aaa quality replica Cartier Santos-Dumont with the creme lacquer finish. I liked the size, and the lacquer finish on the case looked a lot better than I expected. But somehow, that watch didn’t quite grab my attention as much as this black version did. I think it’s the lack of contrast on the rose gold version that “bothered” me the most. In a way, I think this black lacquer luxury super clone Cartier is the one to get. And the good thing is, it’s a non-limited version that should still be available at quite a reasonable price.
The Swiss made fake Cartier Santos-Dumont lacquer edition; a nice surprise
The rose gold/creme, platinum/burgundy, and stainless steel/black Cartier Santos-Dumont models came out in 2022. It was pretty hard to get, and still, there’s no mention of them on Swiss movement copy Cartier’s website. The rose gold version was limited to 250 pieces, and the platinum version to 150 pieces. The black version isn’t limited to any specific number, but I can imagine production numbers aren’t very high. Maybe that’s why prices on the secondary market are around €8,500. This is quite a bit higher than the original retail price of €5,100.
But as the stainless steel version isn’t limited and I couldn’t find it on the brand’s website, I asked whether we could get one in for a hands-on review. A few weeks later, the watch arrived at our office, together with a few other recent cheap replica Cartier releases. But this stainless steel Cartier Santos-Dumont fake for sale with that black lacquer finish quickly became our favorite. And the funny thing is that I think it caught everyone a bit by surprise. This wasn’t last year’s biggest blockbuster release, and it’s the most affordable version of the lacquer trio. But still, it made a significant impact.
Dumont, the more elegant Cartier Santos
So what are we actually talking about here? The original Cartier Santos fake online was designed by Louis Cartier for his Brazilian aviator friend Alberto Santos-Dumont at the beginning of the 20th century. The watch is considered to be one of the very first wristwatches ever. Moreover, it’s one of the very few watches of its time that had a square instead of a round shape. Nowadays, high quality replica Cartier still carries an extensive Santos collection, within which the Santos-Dumont represents the more elegant side of the collection.
The top quality fake Cartier Santos-Dumont at hand today has a fully stainless steel case that measures 31.4mm wide, 7.3mm thick, and 43.5mm from lug to lug. Cartier super clone paypal calls this the large size, yet it’s certainly not a big watch. But make no mistake because this one offers a lot of wrist presence for its modest size. Part of why it catches your attention is that thin layer of black lacquer on top of the case and bezel. It’s almost like someone put stickers on top of the original design. And that’s precisely why I thought it would look a bit cheap in person.
