Vendôme lugs. Search it up and you might not find too much information—it’s one of those oddities of the cheap UK replica watches world that has commingled over time with the vagaries of rising and falling popularity. But here are the facts. This style of lugs, the part of 1:1 Swiss fake watches that secures the strap or bracelet to the case, was first patented in Paris in 1934 by one Louis Cartier. The design was simple, innovative and elegant: a metal T-bar is attached to the top and bottom of the case, to which notched leather straps are attached. The effect is a subtle and graceful separation of leather from metal, which emphasises the silhouette of the (usually) round case.
To make things easier, though, here is an edit of elegant online replica watches that feature Vendôme-style lugs.
Replica Pasha de Cartier 30MM Watches in rose gold, $17,500
Cartier revamped its Pasha de Cartier collection copy watches for sale in 2020, reintroducing and setting the style up for complications and novel details such as moonphases, chronographs, skeletonised dials and grids. The core model of the collection, though, has the loveliest vintage affect and features an elaborated version of a Vendôme-style lug in which the ends are shaped like sugarloaf-cut cabochons. Modernity has its advantages too: the high quality Cartier replica watches has a “QuickSwitch” system that allows you to easily pop the straps off and replace it. It’s offered with two alligator leather options in navy blue and grey.
