Rolex and Cartier are both luxury brands. We all know that Rolex has always sold luxury watches. But Cartier sells not only watches but also various accessories and diamonds. I guess most women who know Cartier are because of wedding rings. But don’t forget that the most classic Tank watches are from Cartier. Whether it is Rolex, which is dedicated to making watches, or Cartier, which is owned by both watches and gems, they are respectable watches. Today we take a closer look at Rolex VS Cartier.
Cartier has a longer history than Rolex.
Cartier’s history in France dates back to 1847. At that time, the Cartier brand had close links with the royal family and celebrities. And Cartier is known as “The King of Jewelers.” But please note that it is “jeweler” and not “watch”. Cartier’s first watch appeared with 1904. This watch is a men’s watch called Santos, a practical watch designed for Brazilian pilot Alberto. Known by others, Tank was designed by Cartier in 1917. So in a strict sense, Cartier’s watch history should start in 1904.
Rolex was established by Hans in 1905. But in the next 20 years, Rolex did not release watches but researched. Only in 1926, Rolex released the first waterproof watch Oyster. Beginning in 1945, Rolex began producing series with special characteristics. For example, Datejust in 1945, Submariner in 100M in 1953, GMT-Master in 1954 which can display multiple time zones, Day-Date in 1956 and DeepSea with thousands of feet diving depth. In short, Rolex is making practical watches for professional scholars: divers, pilots, scientists, racers, explorers and more.
So the history of these two respectable watches brands is 22 years apart.
Both Rolex and Cartier brands are 100% recognized worldwide. Everyone wants to own them, but many people don’t have enough money to buy them. Here I recommend hontwatch.to, this online store has many top quality replica watches and is reputable.
As far as the prestige of the two watch brands is concerned, to be honest, Rolex watches have a better reputation than Cartier watches. Cartier watches are indeed very popular, but Cartier watches are generally regarded as beautiful and noble jewelry. So Cartier is called a jewelry brand.
Rolex provides convenience for a large number of social workers because of the professionalism and sportiness of replica watches. So Rolex is not only jewelry but also a tool. So functional Rolex watches have a better reputation than Cartier.
Although Rolex is fully functional, Cartier’s design is more diverse. Cartier has various shapes of cases and straps, but Rolex only has a round dial. If you often wear suits and shoes, then I suggest you choose Cartier. If you exercise regularly, I recommend Rolex. How to choose these two respectable watches brands still depends on your preference.
Material And Accuracy
Rolex uses patented 904L stainless steel, which has strong corrosion resistance. Although Cartier’s steel is better than other watch brands, it also has oxidation problems. If you buy Rolex and Cartier for the same price, you will get more precious metals from Cartier watches. And in terms of chronographs, Cartier retails even cheaper.
But in terms of time accuracy, Rolex wins. The movements used by Rolex are all COSC certified with an accuracy of + 2–2 seconds per day. And Cartier does not have such a good movement, so it does not have an accuracy of + 2–2 seconds.
Whether it is Rolex or Cartier, the magnitude of the added value of these two respectable watches varies depending on the style. Because of the effects of Rolex’s media promotion, Rolex has a lot of room for appreciation. Of course, some Cartier with special meaning can also bring great benefits. If you accidentally see replica Rolex Submariner 116610LV, buy it now and without hesitation.
Rolex and Cartier are respectable watches brands. If you have to choose a watch between Rolex and Cartier, my recommendation is Rolex. Because Rolex is more practical. But I have to say that the watches made by Cartier as “jewelry brands” are really attractive.
