Question about Cartier Watches

7 Answers

I have a pre-owned but mint condition 18K two-tone Cartier Panther watch with the date in the 5'o'clock position. The date currently reads the 18th, but today is the 11th. Is it safe to pull out the stem to stop the watch until the 18th and then push the stem back in to restart the watch on the correct date? I tried trying to advance the date myself but quickly saw that wasn't an efficient method, and also concerned about advancing the hands so many times to get from the 18th all the way around to the 11th. What do you recommend I do to get the date set correctly? Thank you very much for your help!!

    Thank you very much "sweet rascal"...that may very well be the case...
    I'm only reposting this just in case anyone has any other thoughts.
    It would appear that pulling the stem out "stops time (and date)" e.g., if time/date were suspended for 7 days (without harm to watch or battery) until it "becomes" the right (current) date, problem solved.
    If no other solution thoughts, I'll advance manually...but may I be reassured that so much stem-turning at one point in time won't hurt the watch either? Many thanks again.

    Hi again...it seems that consensus is for me to manually advance the time hour-by-hour to change the date on my Cartier Panther. That's 3 weeks worth of stem turning but I'm advised to trust that the Cartier quality will be steadfast throughout to arrive at today's current date.
    If anyone knows/suggests differently, please let me know, thanks again!!

    SOLVED.  Greetings anyone who tried to help me with this date-setting problem.  I want to pass along what I just learned...  
    On the Cartier Panther watch, the blue sapphire stem has 2 positions...if you pull it out just a little, you can change JUST THE DATE...if you pull it out all the way to the 2nd position, you can change JUST THE TIME.


    So there's the kind of solution I was looking for...so I wouldn't have to turn the stem hour-by-hour for 21 dates to get it to the correct date today.  Thank you FixYa, and merci Cartier, brilliant.

The stem can pulled out on two positions, the first one will change the date by rotating the stem clockwise.
When the stem is in position two, outer one, it will change the time by rotating it.
It is better to put time at eight o clock before changing date, then you put time back to right place

If you pull the 'switch' on the side out a little and then roll it to either direction the pointers should move to that direction same with the date, thats common knowledge on how to adjust a watch is your model faulty or how is this made??

    You pull the stem is it? out a little and then roll it to adjust the time. if this doesn't work you have not pulled it far out enough or you have pulled it out too much.



    otherwise I think you have a faulty watch in your hands if thats now how to adjust the time.

  • Ekse Jul 11, 2008

    thats not the picture of your watch I know it doesn't have the date, I just pulled it out for a example.

  • Ekse Jul 11, 2008

    You can adjust the time as much as you want, it doesn't harm the watch in any way. unless done in a abusive way.

Looking for an 18k Mens Pasha replacement band


You can replace this band with any other leather band that will fit the mm specifications of the watch.

If you are familiar and comfortable with eBay, you can order a band off of eBay. However, the only way to buy a watch band and be sure it is authentic Cartier is to buy it directly from Cartier or an authorized dealer.

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.

Hi, I gave my husband a cartier Panther about 7 years ago and he totally hates the watch because it never works. We have taken it to get checked out at jewelry stores but the people always tell us is the...


The most reliable solution is to send it back to Cartier.

They pride themselves on quality and if you complain loud enough, they may jump into action, although if you had batteries put in by anyone but one of their approved dealers, they may prove difficult.

(If it has a balance wheel, then it sounds like a mechanical adjustment may be all that is needed).

Does anybody know which way i'm supposed to wind my cartier santos watch? Options: clock-wise, counter clock-wise, or multidirectional?? thanks


mcdevito75 here, Generally your Cartier watch is wound in a clockwise direction simply, due to how it:s made, in this direction the mainspring is tightened or wound and turning the crown in a counter-clockwise position only free wheels the winding mechanism. I would advise you wind your watch in a multi direction, however not to the very, very end of It"s winding capacity, once you feel the crown getting tension only 4--5 more multi-direction turns should be enough to maintain a good wind to your Cartier watch.
