If you’re tapped into the 2023 watch zeitgeist then I’m certain tiny Swiss made replica Cartier watches will already be on your radar. They are everywhere and it’s easy to spot the trickle down effect: From celebrities to watch enthusiasts on Instagram, and then onto the wrists of downtown New York local “cool kids.” I even spotted a server in a very run-of-the-mill London restaurant chain wearing a tiny yellow-gold Seiko last night. Teeny tiny watches (a term coined by Dimpiece founder Brynn Wallner) are omnipresent.
The small 1:1 UK Cartier fake watches revival is born from, or at least linked to, a wider overhaul of gender labeling in the fashion industry. Not only have some of the biggest, most established brands decided to co-opt the idea of co-ed runway shows, but now brands as powerful as Gucci are designing and targeting products that are aimed at both genders.
Kid Cudi and Harry Styles are leading the way when it comes to fluid fashion; men are now wearing skirts, cropped t-shirts, blouses and “feminine” jewelry. To some, this may seem like a total revolution, but I’ll be frank: nobody in the high fashion space really gives a damn, because gender neutrality has already been celebrated to the point of normalcy – which is the real sign of change.
Back to the inherently more glacial pace of watchmaking, and the idea of dismantling gender labels has started to make its way through to the mainstream. Despite the fact that I don’t consider men wearing smaller high quality Cartier replica watches particularly revolutionary, it’s a welcome breath of fresh air in a space that seems to have so many rules and regulations about what you should and shouldn’t be into.
Cartier is leader of the pack on the small watch trend front. Tyler, the Creator – founding member of the present day teeny tiny watch club – has undoubtedly given the brand enormous amounts of street cred over the past few years. Nonetheless, nobody can deny that Cartier has been making gender neutral best Cartier copy watches long before gender binary politics were so widely discussed.
A brief aside to explain that I am a total contrarian: If you tell me X is cool then I will immediately tell you Y is cooler. Seeing things become popular makes me wince to the degree of genuine physical discomfort. So for this brief moment I will pretend that small watches are just small watches: Politics be gone! For the next few moments I will indulge in non-biased watch talk because these bite-sized top replica Cartier watches really “sparked” pure joy.
The Cartier presentation is undoubtedly one of my favorite parts of the trade show. For 30 minutes everything in your immediate environment is colored red and gold and branded Cartier. From the presentation trays, to the notebooks and pencils down to the small espresso coffee cups placed delicately on their matching saucers. You’re transported to the cheap Cartier fake watches universe and for those few minutes it’s just novelties, french accents, and getting good wrist shots that matter.
I had absolutely no intention of going into this presentation with a small watch agenda. But as I started trying on pieces from each collection I was struck by the large volume of small sized timepieces.
First up was the wholesale replica Cartier Tank Américaine watches. Cute in stainless steel, perfect in white gold with diamonds. I usually reserve my praise for extended rectangular dial watches for the Tank Cintrée, but I have a newfound respect for the Américaine. This is mostly thanks to my colleague Rich Fordon, who kindly pointed out that purchasing a vintage Américaine would temporarily appease my acute yearning for a Cintree and be within the realm of possibility for acquiring / purchasing.
I tried on the new dainty diamond version which felt akin to trying on Art-Deco diamond Cartier bracelets that sometimes come up at auction. Sturdy but flexible, gem-set for maximum sparkle but never too bright. I’ll admit that the bracelet did win my heart over before I even gave myself a chance to consider the perfect Cartier super clone watches. Classic Cartier with silvered sunray dial, train tack minutes and blued-steel sword-shaped hands. The rhodium-finished white gold case also features a faceted diamond crown totaling 0.69 karats. The rhodium-finish white gold bracelet is set with 528 brilliant-cut diamonds totaling 2.60 karats. The mini Américaine will be available in September 2023 for €48,200.
Next, onto the new 2023 replica Panthère de Cartier watches (reminding you of my problem when it comes to liking things that are very popular!): Solid yellow gold with black lacquered and diamond dial in the small size. After trying it on, I took back everything cynical I had ever thought or felt about the Panthère being dubbed the “it-girl watch.” This slinky little thing felt like velvet on my wrist. Trying it on was like pulling the perfect biased-cut silk dress out of your closet midsummer – easy, breezy, perfect, and no need for backup options. I would wear her loose and check the time by glancing at the inside of my wrist. I would also probably start wearing a lot more black. I basically have a whole new lifestyle centered around this watch. The small yellow gold Panthere measures 30.3 mm x 22 mm and is equipped with a high autonomy quartz movement. It will be available in December 2023 for €29,200.
On to the grand finale: Baby Baignoire on a bangle. This was far from being my favorite until I saw her in person. I should have known gold on gold would win me over. I salute the genius on the design team responsible for putting the deliciously curvy online fake Cartier Baignoire watches on a solid gold bangle because this person just created a whole new category of jewelry watch. A bangle feels like more of a statement than a bracelet, but it’s less of a statement than anything gem-set. Wherever it sits on the jewelry watch spectrum, it’s perfect in my eyes. During the presentation, we were even told that this watch was made to stack (yes you heard me correctly) with other bracelets. No matter what your personal feelings are when it comes to the hotly debated stacking argument, stroll through any affluent neighborhood in any big city and all the women are doing it. Love bracelets, with Alhambras, with tennis bracelets with charm bracelets, and an expensive watch thrown in for good measure. It’s pretty darn awesome that Cartier listened to its consumer and in turn, created a timepiece that rests a little easier when stacked. The new Baignoire is equipped with a quartz movement and will be available in June 2023 for €10,600.
Wearing tiny Cartier replica watches for sale may be trending, and as a consequence I may be behaving like a predictable fashion-centric editor claiming I knew what was cool before anybody else did. But this newly found fluidity genuinely makes me hopeful for the future of watches.
