Cartier Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat
The Cartier Drive Extra-Flat looks very similar to the brand’s 2017 iteration but this time they come in different metals; the classic yellow gold and stainless steel. Both are great for everyday wear and are 39mm in size with a 6.6mm profile for a truly svelte finish that will suit a variety of wrists. With so many watches in the Drive collection, the Extra-Flat is the most simple and showcases a purest expression of design.
With a familiar cushion-shaped case, the wrist captures the attention of anyone who glances at it. This year’s iteration still feels fresh despite its closeness to the original, its ultra-thin profile is still thick enough so as not to feel fragile, a problem that arises with some watches. The case finish is identical to last years; the curved bezel and the top lugs have a high shine polish while the brushed sides bring everything back to the sunburst dial. The polished finish utilises light and stops the watch looking flat on the wrist. The caseback is closed to keep the watch slim and in-line with the overall vintage aesthetic of the Cartier Drive de Cartier Extra-Flat.
The last thing to think about is what colour you’d go for, thankfully you have until September to decide.
