Today we’re going to explore a relatively recent release from Cartier Luxury Replica Watches — the Drive de Cartier.Drive exudes a magnetic aura of power and charisma with its stout form, exquisite guilloche dial that references a motorcar’s radiator grille and crown shaped like a bolt. Eminently masculine.”Eminently masculine looks aside, the Drive was a big deal. The Drive occupied a middle ground, with a cushion-shaped case that came in at 40mm, perfect for a men’s dress watch at the time. It was offered in a range of dial variants at release, with the time-and-date versions in steel or gold getting the most air time.
All this was pretty par for the course for Cartier, but the real stand-out, and the reason the Drive had such a positive response from critics, was that it was explicitly made with men in mind. For Best Replica Watches, which takes a very stalwart approach to incremental product design to release not just a completely new shape, but to pitch it squarely at men, was a big deal.
The Extra Flat simplifies the Drive a little, with a plainer dial and a slightly smaller case (39mm compared to 41), and brings the height down to 6.6mm, almost half that of the initial Drive. For my money, this is still the one to get, either in steel or in yellow gold.It’s a great design. It loses some of its charm in more complex iterations, but that can be said for many (if not most) watch designs.
The choice of shape was also a brave one too — it’s quite close to a round watch, which obviously has mass appeal, but a lot of competitors. If you’re looking for a dressy rectangular watch, Luxury Cartier Replica is pretty much at the top of a very short list, but change that shape to something more circular, and it’s an exponentially more crowded field.
The final reason why the Drive de Cartier Swiss Replica Watches hasn’t received the same love as the other collections from Cartier has nothing to do with the product but everything to do with how it was supported. Vigneron came in with a clear mission — to clarify and focus Cartier’s offering. Women and heritage are key to that new focus, and Drive, a new watch made for men exclusively, is a hard fit for that narrative.
Tweak a date window here or a dial treatment there, but fundamentally the Drive de Cartier is a great watch. The other thing the Drive needs is time. It will never be a Perfect Replica Watch to outshine the Santos or the Tank Louis Cartier, but that doesn’t mean that this handsome men’s model doesn’t deserve a space in the brand’s catalogue.
