If you are thinking of purchasing a watch on Amazon, go directly to the manufacturer. Trust me, it will save you a lot of time, frustration and effort.
It cost over $4,000 when new, and I had no problems with it for 8 years, when it unexpectedly died. I assumed it needed a new battery. I brought it to Cartier in Manhasset, NY, for a new battery and the problems began. Not only did they charge me $50 for the new battery, but I had to pay a total of almost $450 (before tax) for "maintenance" that I was told the watch needed. This included cleaning, polishing, and other repairs which I was never given specific information on. I was told it included "whatever the watch needed", which could range from a new battery all the way to a new movement if required, plus a 12 month warranty on the work. I stupidly assumed that after paying this, I would not have any more trouble with the watch for another 8 years.
Two years after that, the watch died again. I stupidly brought it back to Cartier. (I assumed that no one but Cartier should touch the watch.) I AGAIN had to pay $450 for another "maintenance." When I told them that I had recently had this done (2 years before), they said "That sounds about right" and that I should expect to do this every 2-3 years. How ridiculous is this? To spend $4,000 on a watch, and then find out you have to spend another $500 on it every 2-3 years? If I knew this originally, I would NOT HAVE BOUGHT THIS WATCH. I think that they assume people will pay this because of the Cartier name, but personally I think it's pretty bad manufacturing to make something that dies every 2-3 years. I could have bought a Longines for LESS money and had no problems at all with it.
Then, after 6 months, the watch died again!Read more ›
In my opinion, the warranty thing (Amazon warranty replaces manufacturer's warranty) might become a problem, but you're buying a Cartier. I just can't imagine if you got a defective product that Cartier wouldn't back it up. That's part of what you're getting with a well established brand like this.
Mine arrived as scheduled. The outer paper Cartier box looked like it had been opened several times- was pretty creased on the outside. But everything was perfect on the inside, including the actual "jewelry" box. Having bought a Cartier new from an actual jeweler before, it included all the same things. It even comes with some sort of Cartier CD- not sure what's on it.
Also, for anyone who stressed over what size face to get for a woman like I did, there are 2 ladies' sizes- a petite and a midsize. The petite is very small. I have a petite Santos, and it is perfect for me, but I have tiny wrists- like 4.5". My mom is about 5'6, average bone structure, and the midsize tank francaise was the perfect size for her. The petite would have just looked awkward on an average size wrist in my opinion. All of this really comes down to preference, but generally watch faces should be proportional to the wrist/hand size. I was thrilled that I got this one for her.
I hope it continues to work as well as my Cartier watch.
