SOURCE: Fake or not

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.

How do I wind a Cartier ballon blue watch ?


more than likely it has a screw down crown. Turn the crown towards you to release it from the case tube then wind it forward. Make sure that you tighten the crown when finished winding it or you will get water into the watch.
hope this helps, gabe.

I have a cartier watch and want to know if it is real. The back says Cartier. Plaque org 20m and swiss # 4 05626. On the inside on the back it has a # 15705. On the back face of the watch it says cartier...


  • Visit an authorized Cartier watch dealer at a high-end jewelry store. Use a jeweler's loupe to inspect the Cartier logo, the dial, the hour, minute and second hands, color, case back and the movement, which is the small electronic or mechanical device that runs the watch. Also examine the bracelet or strap for future comparisons of Cartiers at other dealers. Obtain a copy of the Cartier sales brochure or catalog and read it.
  • Inspect the movement by asking the seller to remove the case back to view it. It will be engraved with the Cartier name. If the seller balks at the request, don't buy the watch. The seller may have something to hide, according to Spotcounterfeits.co.uk.
  • Consider the heft of the Cartier if you are considering purchasing a watch from an independent seller. Knockoff Cartiers are considerably lighter than the genuine article because they are made with cheap materials. Examine the Cartier logo to see if it's spelled correctly. Knockoffs usually originate from non-English speaking countries where English is not the primary language and workmanship is poor.
  • Drop a tiny bit of water on the crystal. Cartiers feature a sapphire glass crystal, in which the water beads on contact. If the water smears, the crystal is a cheap imitation.
  • Examine the Cartier trademark polished cabochon gemstone on the crown. The stone should be set firmly in the crown but not glued on. Use a jeweler's loupe to look for traces of glue.
  • Examine the Cartier logo of twin Cs on the case back, dial and strap buckle. The logos should be gracefully produced with no rough stamping.

    Do all cartier watches have blue steel hands? Do all womans panthere's have off white faces?


    Not all have blue hands but most of them! Some have luminous hands.

    There are only two Pantheres on their web site and the illustration is too small to compare the colours. There is do description of the face colours given in the "details" of the watch.

    Can't open Geneve OGW154 gold wrist watch to replace the battery


    You are right, this type of watch can be opened by lifting crystal and extruding the stem. As for lifting the crystal you need a specialized tool, there is no other way then to go and find your nearest watchmakers shop. If you will try to lift the crystal using knife or any other unspecified tool, you will damage the crystal. Even if you will be lucky enough to get it out without any damage, you will not be able to fit it back, because the watch crystal setting tool reduces the crystal diameter for easy fitting.
    Best solution for you is to see the watchmaker and ask for help.
    Do not forget to rate, please.

    Can't get my croton watch to work.


    There are a few possible reasons why your watch is not working:
    1. The battery is dead (sometimes even new watches have a dead battery in them).
    2. The plastic piece between the crown and the watch case was not removed (this protects the battery from wearing down until you receive the watch).
    3. You bought a watch with a damaged movement and it just will not work period so you may have to return it, exchange it, or have it repaired
    These are the 3 reasons why your watch could not be working. The reason will fall into one of these 3 categories, so I hope this helps!
