The grey Cartier Santos.

Jun 09, 2021,16:16 PM

I let go my last Cartier Santos with the blue dial because I felt it was too shiny for me.

The new grey Santos with the brushed ADLC bezel is much more restrained and more to my (current) taste.

The brushed bezel with the coating is also much more scratch resisting than the usual highly polished bezels.
The quick release function for the bracelet is very well done and thus I can have a very fast change of look from the more elegant bracelet .... the sportier rubber strap.

Indeed a complete change of the look!

I like this new dial with the elegant vertical brushing in the middle section.

Another benefit of the dark brushed bezel is that the perceived size of the watch is visually diminished.
The watch retains its very small profile with a thickness of less than 10 mm which makes it supremely comfortable on the wrist.

The dark bezel in combination with the steel case enhances the sensual curves of the design.

Thanks for looking,

I almost pulled the trigger but i was not looking to add anything just yet to the collection...I may end up making my first Cartier! Do you have any insights on how their movement performs? I suspect they are "worst" then COSC?

The "all-black" is also very nice.

I prefered the grey version as it comes with this lovely steel bracelet. The black version sells only with rubber and leather strap. The movement performs well within COSC with a daily deviation of +3,5 is similar to the blue dial model that I previously...

I see Cartier is moving the Santos series upwards. More differences, choices. It is hard to not like the Santos for me. The blue is killer, the grey is one leg at a dealer into the store. The rubber strap on is so mega top, i can not ignore it anymore, i ... 

For the first time …
