So far, we’ve done our favorite budget picks and our picks for the best sports Cartier replica watches wholesale of the year, but now it’s time to get a bit formal.
Cartier Tank Normale Replica Watches – Mark Kauzlarich
Was there any doubt about what dress watch I’d pick from this year?
When I started hearing rumblings that Cartier would release the high quality UK fake Cartier Tank Normale watches at Watches and Wonders, I was overjoyed. While Cartier can be predictable in rolling out reissues of their previous watches, when the original is so good, it’s hard to complain. With that in mind, this is one of the luxury Swiss Cartier copy watches I’d been looking forward to the most.
While vintage Cartier continues to perform strongly on the secondary market, there hasn’t been a watch that has tapped into the vintage mindset of the maison as much as the new Tank Normale (save maybe for the Pebble last year). But where the Pebble was fan service – a watch only easily processed by deep lovers of vintage top replica Cartier watches – here, the brand has made a watch that is digestible and desirable by old fans and newcomers alike.
That said, over the year, I’ve slightly changed my tune on one thing: the real sleeper hit from the many Normale releases was likely the watch in yellow gold on a strap. With silver hands, the platinum AAA online Cartier super clone watches’ dial suffers from legibility issues that aren’t present on the new gold Normale. And on a strap, the yellow gold version is both more affordable and more in keeping with how you’d see vintage Normales on the market. No matter the direction you go, however, I don’t think you can go wrong. This is the quintessential dress watch – 100 years ago or today. Sure, there’s an argument to be made for the Chopard LUC 1860, and I wouldn’t begrudge anyone who picked that.
Just like I said in my effusive hands-on review, there are still a few things that I would change to make this more practical and wearable with a better respect for the original Normale. But the introduction of a production brick bracelet alone – without a massive premium – was enough to sway me as a lover of vintage Cartier. Even with the few tweaks I’d make on a personal special order, there’s no doubt this is one of the best 1:1 Cartier replica watches of the year.

Cartier Tank Cintrée Les Rééditions Fake Watches – Rich Fordon
Sure, the Calatrava is great, but today, no one is doing dress China replica Cartier watches – as a category – quite as well as Cartier. The brand stands for elegance both through iconic dial designs and its unforgettable case shapes. The Cintrée has always been my favorite of the original Cartier wristwatch designs. I know that is a basic preference, sure, the Tank stretched out, larger, and curved to fit a wrist is my favorite. Go figure.
The 2023 best fake Cartier Tank Cintrée Les Rééditions watches celebrates the 100th anniversary of not the Tank Cintrée but rather the Tank Cintrée in platinum. That’s a bit much, I know, but it doesn’t matter why Cartier chose to make my favorite dress watch of the year; it only matters that Cartier did. True vintage Cintrées in platinum will set you back north of $350,000, even if restored, so while even the new Les Rééditions piece is out of reach for me, it is more in reach than the “real” vintage equivalent. That is the perfect recipe for a re-edition. I would prefer a sapphire cabochon, sure, but Cartier wins me back over with this slightly creamy dial finish. Can we buy it? No. Is it the best dress watch released in 2023? Yes.
