Tom Cruise is on a worldwide tour promoting the new Top Gun: Maverick movie, which is great news for fans of preposterous air action. It’s also great news for luxury replica watches admirers around the world. This week, Maverick gave us one terrific watch and then followed up with a lovable sequel.
The first watch was the historically significant Cartier, the Calibre. The Calibre, which debuted in 2010, marked a new era for UK perfect replica Cartier’s watchmaking program. While the brand has been in the wristwatch business for over 100 years, it didn’t make its own movements for much of that time. (Watch nerds care a lot about this sort of thing.) The Calibre—which is named after another word for movement—was Swiss made fake Cartier’s announcement to the world that it was now making its own movements.
To show off its newfound technical mastery, 1:1 fake Cartier created a few show-offy pieces with tourbillons—a notoriously tough feature to build—but it’s the more simple chronograph watches that have stuck around. Tom Cruise is clearly a fan, and so is two-time NBA MVP Nikola Jokic. Cruise is famous for doing his own death-defying stunts so maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise he appreciates a copy watch that’s also proud of doing the work itself.
For the follow-up, Cruise wore another cheap replica Cartier UK: the classic Santos in stainless steel. This is a perfect match between watch and man promoting a movie about aviation. The cheap fake Cartier Santos was one of the world’s first wristwatches, invented at the behest of the pilot Alberto Santos Dumont. Now it’s somehow taking in even better views on Cruise’s wrist—and, as you’ll see, atop championship parade floats.
Steph Curry’s Cartier Santos
Two flavors of Swiss movement fake Cartier Santos this week: Cruise’s classic-as-it-gets and the exact opposite of that in Curry’s. The watch on the newly minted Finals MVP’s wrist is a brand-new release from high quality replica Cartier that just debuted in March. This version of the Santos comes in navy and the new horizontal stripes are a welcome addition. (The whole Curry family is supplying grist for the watch-world mill this week: The night the Warriors won the Finals, Curry’s dad Dell wore a super clone Rolex “Batman” GMT and wife Ayesha a Rolex Deepsea.)
