The Swiss movement fake Cartier Santos is yet another timepiece with an interesting story behind it. It is hardly believable that the highly fashionable Santos was originally created as a pilot’s watch, but the iconic timepiece from Cartier does have its roots embedded in the aviation world in the early 20th century.
At the first glance, it is pretty difficult to put two and two together. The Cartier Santos fake with blue hands is known to be an iconic timepiece from an equally legendary brand, but the history of the watch is much more than that. The watch, notably, is known as the first pilot’s wristwatch that was ever produced. It is designed after a pilot friend of Louis Cartier wanted a timepiece that can be strapped on the wrist, and hence the Santos was born.
Over the years, the Cartier copy with black leather strap had multiple subtle updates to its design. However, its DNA remains, especially with its signature rounded square case and exposed screws. The latest iteration of the model is the Dumont XL, an ultra-thin dress watch with a sleek and elegant case profile. Retailing at S$8,400 for the base stainless steel manual-winding model, the Dumont XL is a reasonably-priced timepiece that offers a great provenance and an iconic design that is both timeless and elegant.
