How to Spot a Fake Cartier Watch

With a long history of sales to royals and celebrities and hailed by King Edward VII as 'the jeweller of kings and the king of jewellers', Cartier is a designer watch maker in a league of its own. As with any desirable jewellery item, the demand for low cost Cartier watches means that the market is flooded with fakes from the Far East, where literally thousands of counterfeits are produced every year.
To help you avoid a fake, here are some things to look out for:
Inscription A real Cartier will have the brand name inscribed on the movement.
Glass Genuine Cartier watches have scratchproof, non-smear glass.
Fakes do not.
Serial number
this should be engraved on the side or back of the watch.
Cabochon stone
the winder of a real Cartier features a securely fastened
polished gemstone.
Weight – due to quality materials, real Cartier's are heavier than lightweight fakes.
