Cartier Santos 100 Steel Automatic Large Men's Watch W20073x8

Among the greatest things about the QuickSwitch and SmartLink systems is they create the Santos a perfect sharing watch. When it was announced at SIHH, I got a text from my wife asking if I had seen it and what I believed. That’s not an everyday occurrence, folks. Once I had one at the flat, there was no way I was keeping it off her wrist. Luckily, I had the bracelet integral to her wrist in five minutes, I wore it out to dinner one night, after which I got it prepared for another day at the office in less time than it took me to walk our dog.The medium with big debate is, in most cases, a private one. That is true here to a degree, but the lack of a date on the medium version makes it a much better layout in my opinion. Additionally, the proportions of the Santos work much better in a smaller size. The big actually looks like a blown up version of the smaller watch instead of something that was intended to be that size from the start. It’s not awful by any means, however I’ll choose the medium all day on the large.At $6,250 in stainless steel, with both the bracelet and also a strap of your choosing, the Santos presents pretty fantastic value in my opinion. But, there are a lot of great stainless steel watches under $6,500 and you’re spoiled for choice if that is what you’re searching for. I could list choices for days, but I have tried to distill out three here that I think compete with all the Santos in three particular ways.

Together with the contemporary watch comes a contemporary marketing strategy too. It’s easy to overlook our little watch-world bubble that most watches aren’t bought by “watch individuals.” Most watches are purchased by human beings who desire something nice to put on their wrists; they want to buy to a brand image or some lifestyle; they would like to convey something by sporting a Cartier Santos Gold Replicarather than some generic whosie-whatsit. Building a particular image around the item, whether it’s by hosting a non-traditional launch event in San Francisco, or signing up Jake Gyllenhaal as a new ambassador, is not any less significant commercially than creating a good product from the beginning. “There’s always a balance available and Santos is exactly this. It’s carrying a classic of this maison and locating contemporary narration around the watch. That is exactly what we constantly will need to find. We’ve got amazing icons but we need to express them at the contemporary, relevant manner.” Deciding to introduction the watch in San Francisco in a three-day event that felt like the TED Conference than a watch launch says a whole lot already. Like I mentioned — not your usual luxury Swiss watch event (believe me, I wish this was the standard).

The movement definitely isn’t something Cartier would like you to be overly worried about using the Santos, and I would tend to agree together. However, that does not mean they have skimped out. Powering both the moderate and large variations of the Santos is the grade 1847 MC. This is an in house movement that measures 25.6mm across, runs in 23 stones, beats at 4 Hz, also contains a 42-hour power reserve. It’s a modern workhorse automatic with easy ribbon, and also a Cartier-signed rotor (not that it is possible to view it through the good caseback). The grade also makes use of nickel phosphorous components that make it more resistant to magnetism, plus it’s coated with a paramagnetic metal inside the case. Cartier doesn’t provide an exact gauss measurement, but does state that the Santos is “efficiently resistant to the effective magnetic fields a watch might be subjected to in everyday life.” And, no fear, there are and no date versions of this 1847 MC, so you are not likely to get a lifeless crown position on the moderate model.As an aside, the skeleton variations of the Santos do not utilize an 1847 MC foundation, but rather that the 9619 MC. It is a completely different movement which uses an irregular bridge structure to show the typical Cartier Roman numerals.To mepersonally, the bracelet is everything for the Santos. It is a lot of appearance, but in the easiest way possible. There’s something so unabashed and shamelessly indulgent concerning the Santos bracelet, and while I can not quite put my finger on why, I am into it.The bracelet onto this Santos is solid stainless steel with matching steel screws. The links are angular, but not sharp, with brushed surfaces and polished borders that replicate the lines of this case.

The main reason for this development is, of course, driven by practical reasons but also by the increase of online sales. Imagine you order this 2018 Cartier Santos on Cartier’s website, you receive it a couple of days after, start the box and then… No need to go to the closest Cartier boutique or a watchmaker anymore to have the bracelet fitted into your wrist. Cartier simply solved this matter with the SmartLinks.Overall, if in terms of design, quality, and characteristics, this brand new 2018 Cartier Santos is a significant success. It looks great, feels good and comes with modern notions, such as the synonymous strap/bracelet and the quick adjustment system for the steel bracelet. The cost is equally intriguing, at EUR 6,600 with this large version in steel (prices start at EUR 6,000 for its moderate size in steel). Available in stores in April 2018. And following closely behind it at the hackneyed section is the narrative that begins something like, “Iconic is an overused word, but so-and-so’s vaunted such-and-such is a true icon that stands up to naysayers and warrants the name.” The Cartier Santos is 1 hell of a watch and its design integrity, build quality, and thoughtfulness talk for themselves. No “iconic” required.When I first saw that Cartier would be relaunching the Santos collection at SIHH 2018, I’ll confess I was not out-of-my-mind excited. The Santos always looked like a fine watch to me, but not a watch value a raised heartbeat. But every day is a school day, and sitting down to look at the new collection that morning of the series, I understood this go-around, the Santos was something different. It’s now something genuinely lust-worthy and that I needed to spend some time together with these watches ASAP. Luckily the type people at Cartier North America chose to oblige my appeal, and that I managed to wear a Santos around nyc to get a week ahead of its launch in San Francisco earlier this season.

In SIHH 2018 Cartier is positioning the Santos collection as one of their primary highlights for 2018 (debuted on aBlogtoWatch here). That usually means the Parisian brand simply introduced a refreshed version of one of the most famous square-cased watches of all time — born in a time when the wristwatch was an infant in the early 20th Century. The 2018 Santos collection features a lot of exciting new items for one of Cartier’s most important watch collections — as well as a new reason to have curiosity about a real classic. It is hard for me to state that Cartier improved upon the Santos — because I feel that the outgoing generation models are pretty special. That said, Cartier certainly modernized the Santos while creating an significant part their brand character appealing to another set of watch buyers.Cartier was pretty excited to discuss the several models in the new Santos collection with us. The Santos comes in several styles, along with two case sizes. There is the 35.1mm wide, 41.9mm lug-to-lug, and 8.83mm thick “Medium” Santos which Cartier mostly intends for women, and then the 39.8mm wide, 47.5millimeter lug-to-lug, and also 9.08mm thick “Large” Santos that is what most guys will favor. Apart from the situation size gap, the distinction between the Medium and massive Santos cases is the existence of a date window onto the dial. It’s absent in the smaller model, and is present at the 6 o’clock position on the dial of this larger model.The Santos case has been totally redesigned by Cartier. The most obvious thing about the updated Santos is how much it has slimmed down. The previous iteration for guys was known as the Santos 100, or Santos XL.
