      Never thought I’d wear a Cartier (always seemed like a girlie fashion brand to me) but think I need to try that blue dial version.

        I'll admit that it is kinda dressy and sort of classic retro, but if you go for the GF blue dial, you will not regret it Mech

          Does the gen strap fit all of them?

            The gen strap fits my BVF and also the GF (with some effort). Does not fit the KOR.

              So GF has better bracelet, but gen strap fits better on BVF?
              Also, GF has better finishing..Is this correct?

                Right on all counts brother. If I have to pick one out of the three, the GF takes the crown

                    The blue one, yes. GF almost identical to gen.

                        I’d like to know which vendor’s white dial Santos is the best too.
                        I just tried on a gen Santos in the boutique, the dial looks off-white instead of regular white, is GF dial has the same color as gen?

                        How about the date wheel font? Is GF close to gen as well?

                        Looking forward to your reply, it seems like you are the only Santos expert here!

                          Hi mate, thanks for your kind words. I'm an expert only as far as I've been many times to the Cartier boutique and can attest to what I've seen there. I'm super picky, so...

                          I own the KOR white dial and the blue BVF and blue GF. The KOR white dial is almost identical to the real thing, the dial is kind of a white silver-ish. And the black numerals have a nice raised print. But not a very nice bracelet, though. The blue GF is the most accurate, regarding dial, case and bracelet. So I've decided to keep the white dial KOR and the blue GF. Will use the KOR white dial case with the bracelet from the GF, depending on the occasion, as I also have the tan leather strap (rep) and the blue leather strap (gen).

                              In my experience no Santos has good lume, but maybe the GF is a little better than the BVF

                                Is there a midsize blue version from GF? Can’t find one.
