Hi guys! I really like the shape of the Cartier Santos but can't afford it. Do you have any suggestions for something with similar looks for under 1k?
W/o going the direct copy route, something that will give you similar vibes is the G-Shock full metal square.
For something that is analog, maybe the new Hamilton American classic or the Mido Multifort TV big date.
An alternative route may be keep saving a bit and look for a Cartier, but a quartz version. A pre owned one in all steel may not be as far away as you might think.
Vario Versa - more like a JL Reverso
Seiko SWR049P1 - pretty close
Casio MTP-M305D-7AV - Casio Apple watch 😜
possible to stretch just a bit?
If all your looking for is case shape then I got you covered…
If George Lucas had a baby with Alberto Santos-Dumont, you’d definitely get the Citizen R2D2. Some even prefer this when battling the Galactic Empire. 👍
Casio Apple Watch is closer to a Santos than the rank options… nice pull. 👍
Just inspired by the shape but not copy or homage, I can suggest
Farer Cushion case collection (Manual) : https://farer.com/collections/cushion-case
Trafford Watch Co. Crossroads : https://www.traffordwatchco.com/
The new Mean watches are pretty cool
Those are Tanks. He wants a Santos. Good choices for Tank substitutes though.
What's the name?
