The Cartier Calibre diver’s watch combines a luxurious design and a prestigious durability sport watch with prestige. Is it? Is these two? These are all good questions, and those who ask well, because Cartier has been very consistent in some of the major high-end brand watches, ensuring that their lifestyle-conscious watches are almost always established for men. The principle of movement.
Consider the main Cartier watch collections such as Santos, Pasha, sports cars, tanks and calibers. There are of course exceptions, but at least these watches are inspired or themed, such as flying, driving, diving, etc… Yes, Cartier’s creations extend to some very high-end areas of time, but in their hearts are basic sports watches to Some form or another.
When the original Cartier caliber was seen, I would definitely point out the design of the sport/clothing natural lifestyle. Now, with the caliber diver initially (first time), Cartier needs a further sensory version and caliber that is especially suitable for diving. So you can take this Cartier Calibre ref. CRW7100052 (aka W7100052) solid 18k rose gold diving? I won’t, but they do provide a steel version. If you think the sea is drowning your Cartier is a good idea. So why do you see it?
Let us first love the idea of sports watches from the premise of the most high-end watch brands, this is by no means the first of Cartier. This is just the latest in a long list of high-end watches in order to show the sporty lifestyle, even if the boss’s idea to go diving is just a bubble in the pool. The Rolex submarine began to live as a professional diving watch, but today is better than the original, and a project whose owner prefers the baby.
In my opinion, the situation of the Cartier Calibre diver is very similar. In theory, you have a 300m waterproof diving watch but in reality you have a luxury SUV owner who is not keen to take it down and pave the way. Luxury toys, which are undoubtedly satisfactory, especially for those who want to combine design and maintenance with a high degree of masculinity. Although you may need a different position, it is true that most Western men feel that clothes watches are too boring to wear on the basis of “leisure.”
When Cartier officially debuted the Cartier Calibre diver, aBlogtoWatch went to work as early as 2014. There you can see the actual image as well as the steel version of this 18k rose gold version. Why is this a sports watch when we look back at the gold version? Well, first of all, I think the black dial is very compelling when mixed with rose gold. Secondly, I think, because this is a luxury lifestyle sports watch, Why not take the luxury element.
One of the interesting things about the Cartier Calibre diver is that, in many ways, it has almost changed the visual standard caliber de Cartier watch. Even if the price is similar between the caliber and caliber diving watches, there is no difference. What is the main difference? It really boils down to two points: the rotating diver’s style border and the increase in water resistance. Otherwise, choose a diver between Cartier caliber and caliber to have personal style and preferences.
I am here, in my opinion, the caliber (the entire collection) is Cartier’s watch now. It offers the most modern design, interior movement, great size, and a flashy Cartier attraction that many people are looking for today. Of course, I love dive-style watches, I tend to think that Cartier Calibre divers are the best choice, but let’s take a look at more details.
The fan-rotating diver’s style is so I welcome the addition of this element to the entire Calibre case design. The inner angle and slightly produces a smooth border from the aDLC steel plate, which makes it quite scratch resistant and provides a slightly different look today than the ceramic watch case you often see. The ceramic case is usually flat or angled, and the caliber diving on the border here is something I like to use with a slightly softer edge.
The diver’s border is a major element that allows Cartier to give the Calibre diver an ISO 6425 “diving watch rating,” and other major elements (except the dial lume) for the depth rating table. Offering 300 meters of water resistance, the caliber diver is a real “diving watch.” Although this element becomes a bit interesting.
One of my main complaints was that the original Dia Calibre watch was only 30 meters from the relatively poor water resistance level. I will always be satisfied with the theme of the 100m sports watch, but the 30m highest exquisite dress is the same watch. Not that I am particularly satisfied. As I said the caliber diver provided 300 meters, what did Cartier change?
To be honest, I don’t know all the changes, but most people can’t tell, which means divers may be a better option for many looking for some high-end watches that look sporty with sporty matching. The Cartier Calibre diver has a solid and exhibition caseback, screw top, just an extra millimeter thickness. This is the water resistance from 30 to 300 meters. When the original caliber is 10 mm thick, the caliber diver is only about 11 mm thick. Many brands even refer to 11mm as “ultra-thin watches.”
I may have mentioned it in the past, but I really like thin diving watches (although I am, and ironically I like very thick diving watches). At 42 mm wide and 11 mm thick, the caliber diver on the wrist is well dressed, with an admirable width and a very slim silhouette of the diving watch.
How thin is the 11mm diving watch? Very thin. Let’s compare it. My Rolex submarine 114060 is about 12.75 mm thick, while the modern Omega Seahorse Earth Ocean 8500 movement is only 16 mm thick. So you can see that Cartier Calibre divers have beaten good margins. Of course, ω provides twice the resistance of water at 600 meters, but since it is a popular observation, I think it is to provide some useful comparative perspectives on how thin the Calibre diver will be on your wrist.
Calibre’s completion has been impressive, and there is no difference in the Cartier caliber diver. In most cases, the brush has a fine groove, which greatly increases the overall attractiveness. Looking at the side of the crown, the thin polished line in the King’s Guard is cute and helps frame the crown of the typical sapphire crystal cabochon. It actually looks black, but the light can see that the convex shape is actually dark blue. I think this is a watch that Cartier deliberately helped to match its black tones.
In dialing, you see some changes compared to the standard Cartier caliber. At first glance, they look the same, but looking at them side by side, you can see a redesigned track, the subsidiary’s stopwatch, and the amount of lume increases. It’s not a more attractive than the other, but it’s important to pay attention to the differences. Each is very clear and offers a semi-Roman digital half-buck hour mark style dial.
Cartier’s subsidiary Chronograph Calibre diver is very clear and beautiful matte white hands. The hours and minutes of the hand may be expanded to look a bit more lume diver, in my opinion, but not the bad way. Of course, there is an “open date window,” I don’t love, but I have learned to endure it or a good dial like a caliber. Slightly dome sapphire crystal on the dial. It is good enough, but I think it can benefit from an extra anti-reflective coating (AR).
The Cartier Calibre diver has the same movement in the standard caliber, which is Cartier’s internal caliber 1904 mc. Also known as the 1904-ps MC, it has a 48-hour athletic reserve and operates at 4 Hz. At about 4 mm thick, it is attractive and Cartier’s main main sport, designed with many watches. Of course, you can’t see the rear of it, but this is part of the “diving” to see the character of the Cartier Calibre diver.
As of 2014, the solid 18k rose gold version of the Cartier Caliber Diving is available at the highest end model. No one is available on the bracelet, but other Cartier Calibre diver models. In my opinion, the caliber should conform to a bracelet to complete the look, but comfortable for the lightest wear, you can not beat the rubber strap. This is a very comfortable view, when you have to “play” while still wearing a golden road to go.
Of course, steel and different Cartier Calibre diver watches may be more popular. Steel bracelet Baccarat Calibre diver may eventually become the most popular model with its “submarine style” steel and anger look. Although the Calibre bracelet is very good and looks good, Cartier does not currently offer a fancy micro-adjustment system to compete with other Rolex, Omega and other companies.
Cartier benefits from a name, and many people want the Cartier Caliber Diver to be an elegant design and a truly long-lasting timer for men looking for a sports watch to stay in the Cartier brand family. It may not be used for actual diving, but Cartier knows. There are very few expensive diving watches.
As a lifestyle project that offers design and renowned visibility, the Cartier Calibre diver succeeds. The price starts at $8,200 for the Cartier Calibre diver on a steel strap. Starting from $7,450, the price standard caliber crocodile leather strap. The price on the Cartier Calibre diver in the steel bracelet is $8,900, while the different shades of steel and gold models carry $10,600 and $13,000 in different shades of bracelets. The price for this referee CRW7100052 (W7100052) Cartier Calibre diver’s watch is $28,100 in 18k rose gold.
