The latest generation of the prestigious Santos de replica Cartier line of watches was launched in 2018, but Cartier added two notable models to the collection at SIHH 2019: the glowing-in-the-dark Santos "Noctambule" and the Santos "Large" Model" with a blue gradient dial. Gradient color is roughly understood as a partial mixing of many colors together, where the color intersection creates a smooth, transitional and continuous effect, usually different color bands, in this case Gia Bao received see many similarities with the term Ombre (smoke) by Rolex and some brands are using.
Although only a minor upgrade, the smoky blue dial works well on the Santos. Dark colors give the fake rolex watch a more dignified look despite its relatively large diameter. Good finish and performance make the replica Cartier Santos De Cartier WSSA0013 a very formidable competitor in the $9000 price segment.
Blue is not a common replica Cartier color as most Cartier watches have silver dials ĘC that is the trademark of the brand, which makes the Santos blue dial unique, especially for those who see Cartier's traditional style is too old. The dial is blue with shades that go from dark to light. Despite the brushed surface, this finish is not easily discernible from a distance. Roman numeral markers and white markers add contrast to the dial, however, this combination does not provide the best readability in some lighting conditions. Because the indexes and hands are polished, sometimes they get mixed up.
The Roman numerals reflect light through the metal plating, so the "VII" position does not have the traditional Cartier secret signature. This is a small detail, but fans of the brand will quickly notice. Another matching detail is the date display with a dark blue date disc to match the color of the dial. The hands are coated with Super-Luminova which increases readability in low light and makes this watch look rather strange compared to the traditional replica watches Cartier with the standard model having blued steel hands. The case is exactly the same as the original Santos de Cartier, this is a "large model" measuring 39.8mm across and 47.5mm long, 9.08mm thick. Therefore, this is a relatively large watch when worn on the hand but quite thin. The curves of the case create a rather slender shape and make it comfortable to wear on the wrist.
