Cartier is often credited with creating the world’s first wristwatch, the square Santo de Cartier in 1904, that was made as a precision instrument for pilots. The timepiece’s angular design starkly contrasted with the round dials found on pocket watches at the time. The design also set the tone for AAA UK Cartier replica watches‘ legacy and opened the door to the luxury jewellery house’s penchant for unusual, unique and organic silhouettes for the wrist.
Silhouettes that defined the house’s watchmaking in the 1960s and 1970s are making their way back from the archives as perfect Cartier fake watches puts fresh new spins on them, from new sizes to colour and gem set references.
The Panthère de Cartier and Baignoire that are said to have taken inspiration from the shape of a bathtub, have become increasingly popular over the past several years.
But the Crash de Cartier takes the top spot when it comes to organic forms that seem to define the logic of watch design. The high quality replica Cartier Crash watches was first launched in 1967: the piece never quite received mainstream popularity simply because of its scarcity.
Like the melting clock taken straight out of Salvador Dali’s The Persistence of Memory painting, the Swiss made Cartier Crash copy watches’ shape is often described as a mangled oval. The hour markers curve to the form of the case, which adds to the design’s surrealist aesthetics.
Legend has it that inspiration for the design came from a Baignoire watch that survived a car crash and was brought to the Cartier atelier for service, where Jean-Jacques Cartier, great-grandson of 1:1 Cartier replica watches‘ founder Louis-François, took an interest. The distorted case inspired the piece that we now aptly know as the Crash.
However, the origin story is a romanticised tale – Cartier instead credits a collaboration between Jean-Jacques and artisan and designer Rupert Emmerson for the design.
The top Cartier fake watches rose from relative obscurity over the past decade thanks to a sudden surge in interest among celebrities and collectors. Jay-Z wore one with a skeletonised reference in 2022. Images of him with the best Cartier super clone watches circulated on social media, further piquing the interest of pop-culture commentators and watch enthusiasts.
Before the design was spotted on the rap mogul, the timepiece was seen on the wrists of celebrities like Tyler, the Creator, Kris Jenner and Kanye West. The classic version of the replica Cartier watches for sale is in gold with a leather strap, à la West’s rose gold piece.
The wholesale fake Cartier watches has also taken on new life over the years with various gemsets, coloured enamel, and, in the case of Kris Jenner, a gold bracelet and a case set entirely with diamonds.
Vintage renditions of the cheap Cartier replica watches have appeared at auctions and sold for substantial prices. An early edition Crash from 1967 fetched US$1.5 million in 2022 on the online auction site Loupe This. The yellow gold timepiece was sold to its original owner at Cartier London. The lot sold to an undisclosed buyer for almost double its already high estimate of US$800,000.
