Watches and Wonders 2022: Cartier Santos Dumont Platinum Red Lacquer.

It seems that this year, Cartier has something with colored lacquer. 

Here, it is on the bezel and on the top of the case. 

The official photo: 

My attempt: 

The case has nice proportions, 43, 5 x 31, 4 mm and quite thin, with 7, 3 mm height. 

Platinum gives to the watch a great feeling. Consistent, not heavy. 

As often, the red ruby on the crown is delicious. Matching with the red touches on the dial. Well done, once again.

The movement, Ref 430 MC is manual winding, with a power reserve of 38 hours.

Limited to 150 pieces.

Cool novelty, but my heart is taken by another novelty from Cartier, this year. 



Which one? The one with the

a great deal. Extremely tastefully executed. Love the color of the lacquer, the matching strap color, and the understated, subtle dial details. Great stuff from Cartier, Filip

Thanks for commenting, my friend.

The combination of platinum and red lacquer is pure Cartier style. I will be viewing this watch very soon along with several more. 

Are the lacquer applied all across the bezel and above the lugs?

I’m interested in this one and the Chinoise Pt non-skeleton version….both still add up to less than that YG Skeleton Chinoise, and again save enough for Destro 😅

I do think so.

I really, really like this offering from Cartier. Beautiful dial and case.

It is stunning, but I prefer the pink gold version with yellowish lacquer.

Aaah, almost vanilia? Yes, I saw it too, not bad at all!
