Cartier does not police watches. On the contrary, questions about how you obtained the watch could result in a libel/defarmation of character lawsuit against them. They are way too smart to fall for that trap. They are not the police. By the way their records are private and they would never engage in a witch hunt that could come back and bite them in their very very deep pockets. What that other guy said here is not true.

Re: need watch links cartier stainless steel
Unfortunately there is no way to get the link(s) for your Cartier watch without getting in touch with Cartier. Everything you need you can find here:
Cartier is very aware about their products and you will be asked to bring in or send in your watch with supplied documents(proof of purchase etc.). In case if you do not have the proof of purchase you will be asked too many questions(when you bought it, from who, for how much, etc.) and this can lead even to police investigation as quite many of Cartier made items are stolen(not abuse to you, of course). So, if you do not have any original papers with your watch, the best solution is to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help. Decent watchmaker allways can find out how to help. Hope this helps a lot. Don't forget to rate, please.

First of all, Cartier does not police watches that come into their store. They do not ask for bills of sale, etc., as said by someone here. And an aside, you can have 50 bills of sale, the law is very clear a stolen item that you paid for does not make it yours and if returned to it's rightful owner, you are out the money you paid for it (unless you get the money back from the one who sold it to you, good luck with that!) Secondly, I have the same watch as yours, that I bought on eBay and I brought it to Cartier. They did register the serial number in my name and address, Now maybe if Cartier decided to break their own rules and opened their files to the police who may be looking for your watch in the thousands registered with them because the owner of your watch was the Police Commissioner's wife then there maybe a chance the police would knock at your door if the wife didn't already get paid by her insurance company for the loss! Back to my watch, you may have noticed the links on the back next to the deployment buckle of the watch are not in gold and ss but just stainless steel. The Panthere which now discontinued by Cartier comes with 5 or 6 links on either side of the gold and ss (at least that is what I see on eBay and that is also what I have). Cartier takes the watch and calls you in a couple of weeks to let you know how much it will be cost. Here is where my memory fails..I think I needed 2 or 3 links added. Two prices were offered to me, one for the gold and stainless links which was like $720 or the stainless which was like $175 ( I know it was under two hundred) which I opted for. When I picked it up it was in (no added cost) a really nice red suede like travel bag with Cartier in gold letters on it and 2 gold colored snaps. I have seen these selling on eBay for $30 -50. EBay also has links for sale but at about $125 each and you have them put on by a jeweler$. Hello. Cartier cost less, they put them on and you get the travel thing. Go to Cartier.
My black rubber watch band is cracked and in need of replacement. I refuse to shell out $500 for another rubber band from Cartier. This is my first and last Cartier watch... Poor customer service on a very expensive watch.
500 per one rubber; is not expensive is a steal
Wrap the watch band around your wrist to determine how many links need to be removed for the watch to fit properly.
Place the watch face-down on a flat surface.
Look on the back of the watch band. You will find an arrow that indicates which direction you should push the pins to remove the links.
Find the point at which the extra links need to be removed for your watch to fit your wrist. Using a 1 mm flathead screwdriver (or the edge of one side of a pair of tweezers), push the pins in the direction indicated by the arrows.
Finish removing the pins with your pliers.
Keep the extra links in case you ever need extra room on your watch band.
