This beautiful Cartier Roadster Automatic is one of the most affordable high end watches you can get. However, the word “affordable” is quite hard to use in this context considering that this watch starts from approximately $4000, so not many people would actually afford it. The best thing about this watch is the fact that it is a simple, everyday watch that can be worn with almost anything. So a person who just wants to buy a single watch would find this to be a great deal. Also, the design is made with great taste and considering that it is one of the more affordable watches it is comparable with other watches from the Cartier series. But since we’re talking about high-end watches we can easily understand why the watch is often so copied by manufacturers but also by those who create replica watches.

There are some differences between the original brand and the replica watch and they can easily be noticed when comparing them side to side. There are four differences that might show that the watch you are wearing is a replica. The first difference we can see at first glance is on the date mark as it seems to be designed a bit rougher on the replica watch than on the original brand. The design on the original watch is big and quite stylized, but the replica watch has a date that is smaller and less noticeable at first glance. Also, even if both dates are monochrome, the replica comes with black numbers on a white background while the original watch comes with bigger white numbers on a black background.

The next difference we see is on the hour and minute markings, and again they are more stylized on the original watch and bulky on the replica watch. Also, they are colored completely in silver or made out of stainless steel on the original Cartier while the replica features some minute and hour hands that are half silver and half black right in the middle, where they all connect. Another thing that you will notice about this watch is the fact that it comes with slimmer numbers for hours while the original Cartier has bulky numbers this time. Also it seems that the replica has a different shape overall. It seems to be thinner and less bulky than the original brand making the overall design look smaller.

Cartier Roadster Replica Review

The Cartier Roadster is one of the classiest watches from all Cartier collections. This watch was inspired from automotive designs but also comes with minimalistic style and great design. It was created to inspire great mechanical craftsmanship but also a simple but elegant design and comes with a unisex touch to it, being the favorite of both men and women.  Here we have the Cartier Roadster in Black version made of stainless steel, a stainless steel bracelet, a black dial, and roman numerals.

It seems that there are only three differences between the two watches. The first difference is at the date. The original Cartier Roadster watch has a date display that shows the numbers on a black background with white font, while on the replica watch the numbers on the date are shown with a black font and a white background. The second difference that we can observe is on the dial of the watch. It seems that the markings at each hour are somehow stretched outwards on the original watch but on the replica watch they are perfectly round and upstretched, which gives the watch a slightly different design. The third difference between the two watches and the last is on the hands. It seems that the hands on the replica watch are a bit different than the ones on the original watch, as the replica watch has baton hands for both the hour and the minutes, while on the original watch the hands are different. Also, the seconds hand is black on the replica watch while on the original watch it is white colored.
