Cartier has a rich history in jewelry making industry, some people only know that Cartier makes beautiful jewelries, they do not know their watches are also good. Cartier is good at using jewelry elements in their watch design, so some ladies watches from Cartier look precious and are very expensive. But you are wrong if you think they do not make good mens watches, the Santos 100 and Ballon Bleu 42mm are both good watches for men, and the Calibre de Cartier Diver I am going to review today is full of masculinity. Cartier Calibre Diver replica is mainly made by two factories currently, TF and JJ, now the one made by TF is out of stock, so the only version of replica Cartier Diver you can get now is from JJ factory. The replica is a top edition from JJ, every component is disassembled from genuine watch and then studied by the watch master, so after checking every detail on the replica, you can find the watch part could be interchanged with genuine. Not in high quality, the replica can also match you with any occasions although it is a diver watch.
The case is made of 316L stainless steel, it is 42mm in diameter and 11mm thick, which is the same as genuine. Whole case is brushed, the bezel has the same construction as original, there are white 60-minute diving scales on black bezel. Only the triangle mark on the bezel is applied luminous material, it will emit super green light in the dark, like the hands and markers on dial.
Bezel is uni-directional rotating, it fits case body perfectly and there is no gap between them. Crown uses spinel sapphire, its color is very close to genuine and has multiple cutting faces. Case back is solid stainless steel and locked by eight screws. There are engravings in correct depth, you can read enough information from its back, like its series that watch belongs to and water resistant depth. It seems like that the case back of all Cartier watches is fixed by screws, not screwed down, so a lot of buyers doublt its water resistance. For a replica watch, I have to say, if you really care it, please take it off before go dive.
On black dial, there is a big Rome number at 12 o’clock, it is applied Swiss lume material, other Rome numerals are not applied. Small second hand is working on subdial at 6 o’clock, the circle with black markers on subdial is also applied lume material, so are sword hours and minutes hands. There is a fan-shaped window with white edge showing current, before and next date, while date font is white in black background, making it easier for wearer to read.
About movement, the Cartier Diver replica is equipped with an Asian automatic movement, while you open the case back, you will find both its movement plates and auto rotor are decorated to outlook of genuine Cartier 1904-PS MC. The band on the watch is black rubber, not like poor quality rubber used by low-grade replica watches, this rubber strap does not have bad smell, it is also soft to wear and long lasting. Pin buckle fitted on the band is brushed and has “Cartier” engraving on the front.
Thanks for taking time to read my watch reviews. This Cartier Diver watch also has rose gold and pvd black model, made by the same factory. If you are interested in them, please contact me through Email.
