Question about Cartier 21 Chronoscaph W10125U2 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

Its actually for a Cartier W10172T2 Circa 2006

Hi, I have a pre owned Cartier of this model W10172T2, I have been given a serial number on an authenticity certificate which I have no idea wether its true or not as I cannot find a serial number printed anywhere on the outside or inside of the watch to match it. secondly I cannot get the 2 side chrongraph buttons to actually sucsesfully operate the 3 chrono dials with any sense, the 10 oclock and 2 oclock located dials just randomly roll around to no where in particular, the dial at 6 oclock seems to work but have no idea how to set this in align with the second hand, is there an instruction manual available? are the chrono dials faulty? please help, your advice would be very much appreciated. I am puzzled. regards george

Cartier Model Numbers

From what I can tell, the major differences between the watches:

W20011C4: Quartz Movement (battery)
W20058C4: Automatic Movement

W20011C4: Case Thickness - 6.7mm
W20058C4: Case Thickness - 8.3mm

W20011C4: Date at 3:00 position
W20058C4: Date at 6:00 position

W20011C4: Newer Model
W20058C4: Older Model

The W20058C4 is the older watch and will be reflected in the price, as compared to the W20011C4. However, it does have an automatic movement which is much more desirable. It really depends on your taste/budget/preference.

Be very careful about purchasing a secondhand timepiece. There are so many fakes out there. Purchase one from a recognized Cartier dealer or one that guarantees the authenticity of the watch. Do not be lured in by prices that seem too good to be true.

I want to buy a Cartier lighter but I want to make sure it,s real. How do I look up the serial number?

To look up the steel ligter serial number is very easy ,I specialize in buying and selling Cartier watches. I've seen fakes with all the correct marks and a serial number, but that doesn't mean they are legitimate. If the watch was registered by Cartier when it was sold or if it has been sent in to Cartier for service Cartier will be able to verify it is authentic, but be aware that if the watch was not originally sold in North America or was not registered when sold (fairly common) it can still be authentic. Some sellers offer the Cartier quartz model for sale and only state that the watch has a quartz movement, but fail to mention if it has a Cartier quartz movement. If it has a replacement movement in it the watch is technically authentic, but not original and is not worth as much as one with an original or a genuine Cartier replacement movement. The biggest mistake I've seen amateur Cartier buyers make is using the Cartier micro-script signature on the Roman numeral to verify authenticity. Indeed this is a good indicator, but not the best indicator as there were many Cartier watches produced prior to the technology required to make the micro-script possible and not all Cartier watches have Roman numerals for the dial to have the micro-script signature. Furthermore, the micro-script is not always located at the same place and if the dial has been refinished it may not appear at all. Another common problem is actually caused by language differences, i.e. "all original versus "authentic". A watch can be authentic without being all original. Unless someone has owned the watch since it was new and it has never left their sight it is impossible for them to state the watch is "all original" as a part could have been replaced at some point in time -- even without their knowledge. Your best bet is to buy from a reputable seller even if you have to pay slightly more money. -- Cartier_Specialist

Cc391314 is written on d back of my watch???is dis d serial number??is it fake???

mcdevito75 here, Not really the serial number, rather a model number, the numbers you need are on the movement itself. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area, they will evaluate your Cartier watch for you.

Dating a cartier pasha watch

no because your watch has a eta movement made by the swatch company cartier buy the movement from eta then decorate it and sign the rota with there logo the movement could be 2yrs old before cartier get the watch to sat in the shop window. only cartier could tell you when your watch was manufactured..the srial numbers you provide identify what the movement is using cartiers own code to identify the movement and one is for the the model ie. seatimer..
