SOURCE: cartier, real or fake?

Best way to tell is to open the watch and see who the manufacturer of the mechanism is. I think Cartier would use ETA movements. If it's some cheap plastic, no (0) jewel mechanism then it's fake for sure.

The only way I know of finding this out is to take it to a Cartier dealer and let them examine it.

I was told by one jeweler I took an forgery of an expensive watch that it is common practice to destroy any forgeries, so unless you are prepared to loose the watch (is it working OK?), then it might be a risky option.

If you bought it cheaply, then is unlikely that it is genuine (I picked up my forgery in a jumble sale rubbish heap).

SOURCE: is my cartier santos cc708177 2301 real or fake

How much did you pay for it? ... What is the retail price where fine watches are sold? The prices I found were well on the other side of $1,000.00.

Your jewler can tell you in an instant if the timepiece is fake or real ... and he or she will do that for free.

Need a glass for cartier 2301 cc708177 aurtomatic watch The glass broke how much will it cost? Can I put it in myself? The watch works inspite of being bit up a lot.


NO !! You cannot do it yourself !! You will destroy the value of the watch if you attempt a DIY repair. Google Cartier website, find a store near you, call them & discuss your watch; you can ship it insured to them, they'll call you BEFORE they do any work. If you or any non-authorized Cartier person opens the watch, you will destroy it's value, and they CAN tell if a non-Cartier person has opened it, will refuse to touch it.

Hello- My mother passed away and left me some personal things which include a Cartier watch. It definately looks real. It is water resistant, swiss made with blue hand dials and the number on the back is...


Michael DeVito---PLEASE STOP telling people to take their Cartier to a "watch repair shop" !! If they do that instead of taking it to a Cartier shop, they will destroy the value of the watch. Once it is opened by a non-Cartier shop, Cartier will NOT stand behind it, won't even touch it and they can tell if it's been opened by someone non-Cartier trained. A 'regular' watch opening tool will damage a Cartier. And then pop goes the weasel, the watch is now worthless. Yes, they will destroy a fake that comes in their shop, and that is their right to do so; it protects the value of all those folks who have REAL Cartiers and paid big money for them. I'm sure you mean to help, but please, please stop saying "take it to a watch repair shop; you are advising these people to ruin their very valuable watches ! Anyone who has a Cartier can 'Google' Cartier website, click on U.S., then find a store near you & call them to discuss your watch. They'll be happy to help. A tune-up for your Cartier costs roughly $65.00 in a Cartier boutique, you should do that if you've bought a used one. No, I don't work for Cartier, but I own one and despise that so much bad information is out here about these watches. A genuine Cartier is not just an investment but a responsibility. Hoping this helps someone.

Can you tell me if this is a genuine Cartier number. I am watching a Cartier Tank Francaise, there are no papers - but the seller is states that the back of the watch is engraved -cartier-water resistant -...


"The seller states" ? Why did the seller not provide you pix of the back of the watch ? I would be VERY skeptical about this. If you really want a Cartier, you can buy one used from a number of reputable websites, such as TimeZone.com and Chrono24.com; there are verified reputable sellers there you can buy from. Note the prices on these sites; they are what these watches really cost used, usually a very good indication of whether a timepiece is authentic or not. BE CAREFUL on Ebay ! :(

Real or Fake


Real cartier santos watches are engraved on the back of the watch not etched on the back like a fake. Also the word cartier is engraved on the clasp of the bracelet. Do not but unless these two conditions are satisfied.

Fake or not


Generally you have to open the watch to see the movement but a lot of fakes are plain workmanship flaws.
A real Cartier will not be made from base metal. It will be made from stainless steel or precious metal.
A real Cartier will most likely be built with screws in the band instead of cotter pins.
When you pull the crown to set there will be no play in the set lever. In other words when you spin it, it will begin to turn the hand immediately and there will be a slight resistance. It will not feel loose.
As stated, the best way to tell is to look at the movement. Cartier uses a high grade Swiss movement most likely marked ETA.
