Dear friends;

I recently bought a Cartier Pasha seatimer from a reputable dealer on eBay. (47500 watches sold, 100 % feedback, 30 days return policy). I went to a store to try the real watch and I loved it. I received the watch today and it look great, perfect size and weight. I have 30 days to return it if I am not satisfied. I got it in an auction at $2900 (it's worth $7845). Frankly it looks and feel like the real deal. There is no flaw that the naked Eye could spot. I am humbly asking for your help and expertise to make sure this watch is real.

What is the best way to have it authenticated by an AD?
May I simply take it to Cartier and ask for Valuation for insurance purposes?
There is a Tourneau dealership not too far from my home should I take it there?

Thank you for your advises.

Of course you may take it to Cartier for authentication. In fact, I believe if you asked them, they would prefer that you take it to them!
I have never dealt with Tourneau (outside of requesting one of their catalogs) but I see no reason why they should not be able to help you.

Good advice from the members. Just wondering, why would you pay that much money online if there was any doubt about the authenticity? I guess if you thought it was worth the risk for the potential big savings, but you're a braver man than me if that's the case :mellow:

If you live in a big enough city to have a Tourneau, there HAS to be an actual Cartier store not too far away.

I don't think I would let anyone at the Houston Tourneau attempt to remove the back of any of my watches.
