Cartier’s ‘burst’ Santos Has Been Updated, Please Pay Attention To Distinguish New And Old Models

It is not too late to get to the topic. Brothers, please note that at this year’s watch exhibition, Cartier has updated and replaced Santos and launched a new generation of Santos. Many brothers, especially your wives, many people buy and sell Santos. Therefore, this time Cartier Santos update will affect very, very many people. After Cartier launched the new Santos, this year, there will be a situation where the old and the new are mixed, and the new and old models are mixed. So when you buy a watch by yourself and buy a watch for your wife, please pay attention to the difference between the old and the new to prevent the wrong purchase .

Cartier’s new Santos.
   Cartier’s three ‘explosive models’, blue balloons, tanks, and Sandos. On the amount of travel, the blue balloon boss, Santos is not the second, but also the third. At present, there are a large number of Santos in circulation on the market that we are all familiar with. It is the style with 8 screws on the belt and square bezel. The Santos 100 series (both men’s and women’s) was launched in 2004, and it has been a long time since. This time, the Santos replacement is to replace the Santos 100. The changes of the new Santos can be summarized in one sentence.

Cartier’s new Sandoz (top) and old Sandoz (bottom), brothers can compare.
On the surface, nothing has changed. Actually, there are changes in every place.

   Santos, including other popular Cartier watches, have something in common with Rolex. It is these super classic watches, no matter how they are upgraded, the appearance changes little. Just like the Rolex Water Ghost, it has been out for more than 50 years, and the appearance has basically not changed much, so that the recognition of the watch will be high and the value will be stable. Therefore, the new Cartier Santos looks at the surface and feels no change, but in fact there are upgrades from the inside out. Let’s say from the outside.

   First, the case. The case of the new Santos has not changed much, but if we look closely, we can see that the curve of the lugs of the new case is larger. The old bezel is a square bezel, the new bezel extends up and down, and is combined with the bracelet.

   Second, the dial. The new Santos dial has changed a lot. First of all, the old hands are ordinary luminous hands. The new hands are upgraded to blue steel hands. The new dial scales are replaced by track scales. The old Santos did not have a calendar, and the new Santos added a calendar at 6 o’clock.

   Third, the movement. Many brothers often complain about Cartier’s movement. Because blue balloons, tanks, and Santos watches, have always used a universal movement. Rolex, Omega and Jaeger-LeCoultre at the same price as Cartier are all self-produced movements. Although IWC uses a universal movement, anyway, the mark is low. Cartier is now also changing the movement. Cartier uses the self-produced 1847MC self-winding movement on the new Sandos. 1847MC movement, size 25.6 mm, power 42 hours, 23 gem shafts, swing frequency 28800. In addition, I don’t know if the brothers know, Cartier actually replaced the 1847MC movement on the blue balloon. At the same time, Cartier’s key also uses this movement. Cartier has also begun a brand-new replacement of its own production movement.

   Fourth, the bracelet. This time the new Santos bracelet has changed a lot. First, the new Sandos has a quick-release strap function. Just like Vacheron Constantin, you can quickly change the strap without tools. Quickly change between chain and belt. This is convenient. One of the more powerful features of Cartier’s new Sandos is that its steel chain can be used to cut the bracelet by hand without using tools. When it comes to steel chain watches, the most troublesome part is the cut-off chain. The new Santos bracelet has a quick release button on the chain link. , Do it yourself. I think this is the most practical. I hope that every steel and gold watch in the future will have this function. I really feel that the technology of a watch is not just a movement. Like Cartier’s new technology used on the bracelet, it is convenient, practical and definitely should be promoted, which is also a manifestation of technology.

The new Sandos can be used without tools to remove the strap and remove the links.
   The new Cartier Santos comes in two sizes, large and medium. Large size 39.8 mm x 47.5 mm; medium size 35.1 mm x 41.9 mm. Men wear large size and women wear medium size. The new materials include steel shell, intergolden shell (gold intergold), and golden shell (rose gold, gold). The large public price of steel shell is 50 thousand 2 yuan. The brothers can see that this price is higher than the blue balloon. In the watches of the same level, this price is not low. Still, if you buy a watch, it depends on your brothers. If you buy it for a girl, you still have to listen to the girl.

The new Cartier Santos has a separate head and bracelet.
   The best part of Cartier’s watchmaking is that the ‘face value’ is high and looks good. It doesn’t matter if you like it or not, it’s super hot in reality. Some popular watches will be out of stock, and the secondary market value is very strong. Who is Cartier in great demand? This time, the degree of upgrading of Sandos is still very large. I do n’t have to think about this new watch, it will be fired, because blue balloons, tanks, and Santos are not fired? No way, my wife said that she likes Cartier, it’s useless.
