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.

I need a serial number for a women 's Cartier watch I bought. I am not sure if it is authentic or not.


Take it to a jeweller and they will tell you free of charge. They can tell as soon as they take the back off.

There are resources in the main link to help you, but removing the back and having an expert look is the only way. China is making lots, but they have a cheap Chinese watch movement inside them.

It can be quite difficult to tell fake Cartier watches from genuine Cartier watches, but there are a few guidelines you can follow:
Inscription The simplest way to tell a fake Cartier watch is to remove the caseback. A genuine Cartier watch will have "Cartier" inscribed on the movement.
Weight Like most luxury accessories, genuine Cartier watches are quite heavy, especially when compared to the lightweight fakes. This solid weight is due to the watch's quality materials.
Glass A genuine Cartier watch has scratch-proof glass, which won't be found on the fakes. This is something that's fairly easy to test. The sapphire-quality glass of a genuine Cartier is also non-smear, so if you drop a few beads of water on it, they will roll off. On fake Cartiers it will smear.
Cabochon stone The winder of a genuine Cartier watch features a polished gemstone, called a cabochon stone. If there's no stone, it's a fake Cartier watch. The gem should be securely fastened, not glued on.
Serial Number This should appear on the back or side of a genuine Cartier. The number will be engraved as a number of fake Cartiers feature a serial number that's barely etched onto the watch.

I bought a watch from the charity shop today it is marked on the back with cartier paris 925 plaque or g20m swiss 17050343 can any one tell me about it


I keep saying the same thing on this board; call Cartier and describe the watch to them, you could also take digital photos of it & email them. They are always going to be your best resource for vintage or any other type Cartier watches. You can Google their number.
Having said that, your watch seems like it may be a REPLICA ( meaning, fake, I'm sorry) 'Cartier' Argent, which may be worth around $250. It is not a real Cartier. There's no way even a charity shop would sell an authentic Cartier for anything under $1,000. I am sorry to disappoint you, and if you don't feel you can count on my say-so, you are welcome to call Cartier & verify what I've said.

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
