How do I get extra links for my Cartier panthere stainless steel and gold 2 row gold
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.
