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.
Do NOT open your watch yourself !! Cartier is NOT a DIY watch project and if you try to make it one, you will destroy the value of your watch ! It's about $60 US to take ( or ship insured) the watch to a Cartier shop for repairs. They will do a tune-up & address any issues the watch has for that $60, and they talk to you BEFORE they do any repairs. You can Google Cartier's website, click on U.S. and then find a store close to you; they have 800#'s you can call and speak to an authorized rep about your watch, they'll instruct you further. FYI---they can tell if a non-Cartier tech has opened the watch, so be aware of that before you attempt it, opening by anyone other than a Cartier tech will guarantee they won't touch your watch, which means you may never get it fixed or solved. Simple things like settings can usually be handled with a free phone call. They're very polite people & usually are quite helpful. CALL !
mcdevito75 here, The easiest way to check the authentisity of your Cartier watch is by a jeweler, try to find a small watch repair jeweler over a fancy place which may charge you. You can also check Cartier watches on ebay, or simply type in Cartier watch on the search of your computers home page. The jeweler is best though, specially if your not that familiar with watches. the little I know tells me the Cartier name on the face should be Staright all the letters exactky the same (CARTIER) and all the hour and minute markers the exact same.
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 retail...ie. 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..
The top button is for chronograph function and puts the chronograph seconds hand in motion. The bottom button is for resetting chronograph seconds hand to zero. Do as follows: 1) push the top button once- seconds hand starts moving, 2) push the top button once more- seconds hand stops, 3) push the bottom button once- seconds hand returns to zero. You can repeat as many times as you like- seconds hand will allways start the countdown from zero. Depending on what movement your watch has(mechanical or quartz), there can be more variations, but the basics are as described. If you need more info, supply full info of your watch(make, model, numbers, etc.), please. Do not forget to rate, please.
You can distinguish real or fake.the real is heavy than the fake,fake is lighter.the color the real one is not to shine is dull,the fake is very shiney compare to real,the metal they use the real uses stainless,titanium and gold.The fake is nickel plate or zinc metal.the engraving the real is deep seated engraving,the fake is on the top only not so deep.I can't say your watch is real or fake,basing on serial number,the emitator can emitate the number.I gave you a tip how you know the real or fake.
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.
