Swiss made replica Cartier continued their development of the best replica Santos-Dumont collection that they’d begun to revitalise in 2019 with a number of new quartz references.
Last year’s references focused on mechanical movements instead, as well as an expansion of precious metal cases, and several very exciting new limited editions.
One of them was the fake Cartier Santos-Dumont “La Demoiselle” Limited Edition in platinum, which was limited to just 30 pieces, and arrived with a lacquered maple collector’s box that contained an alligator leather pouch and a pair of red tiger eye and white gold cufflinks.
It’s the exquisite details that win me over here, from the ruby cabochon in the crown and the Breguet hands to the basket weave pattern in the dial and strap that’s apparently inspired by Alberto Santos-Dumont’s Panama hat. The 30 people who managed to get one of these on their wrists are very lucky indeed.
