Careful of the Fake Cartier Watches in Marketplace. How do we know?

Common Fake Cartier in the marketplace today
Common Fake Cartier in the marketplace today
As an estate buyer and seller of over 30 years, I can tell you that the amount of fake watches being sold on the internet is crazy. The fake Cartier is one of the strongest in the marketplace and they are so real that even the experts have to take a second look! In the last quarter 3 have come to us!
There are several things to look for: Crispness of the lettering, dial letter/numbering; Logo impression and if its not exact, straight or dimpling its not real; links not smooth from the case and displays unevenness; crown emblem; inside movement does not say Cartier; weight of the watch. Even with all of these items dubbed by the counterfeits you still need to bring in to have checked out!

Do people still wear wristwatches? Read paper newspapers? Eat breakfast at the table in the morning before they go to work? Buy things at malls?

LOL, I guess some do! I was at my parents' house last week (and I'm no spring chicken) and they did all of those things. Except the mall shopping. They don't do that.

Those days were not that long ago yet seem like centuries. Today its technology and in the moment action!
