Cartier Drive De Cartier Watch Hands-On

THE MAN Magazine Cambodia - - 360 Watches -

For fans of Cartier who hap­pen to be guys, this watch has been a long time com­ing. Don’t get me wrong, Cartier makes a host of men’s watches, but the Cartier Drive de Cartier watch is a piece that I could con­fi­dently say is a watch that can suc­cess­fully broaden the brand’s ap­peal in a way that hasn’t been done for quite some time. The rea­son for this may very well lie in the fact that it of­fers a range of op­tions from steel, to gold, to a fly­ing tour­bil­lon model. That be­ing said, it’s the steel ver­sion that is both the most af­ford­able and has me the most ex­cited. Cartier could prob­a­bly lose some of the ma­cho vin­tage car ori­gin myth of this watch’s de­sign and be per­fectly fine. The guil­loche is al­legedly in­spired by the de­sign of a ra­di­a­tor grill on a car, and the bolt shaped crown is de­signed to il­licit a sim­i­lar au­to­mo­tive theme. Sure, and I re­ally do see where they are com­ing from here. But in a way, the best com­pli­ment I can pay this watch is that I re­ally don’t care about the de­sign’s back­story that much. With the Cartier Drive de Cartier watch, the brand has cre­ated a fan­tas­tic and hand­some piece that I could wear ev­ery day and be proud of with both the de­sign as well as the qual­ity in-house move­ments.
