    found at home. fake?

    hi i found this watch in my fathers drawers and wanted to ask you if its fake or not.

    The steel somehow feels "cheap" when you touch it.







    many thanks in advance

    Congratulations I would say you have found an 80's fake of a Cartier , even the printed "Cartier " is on the p!55 and the gold accents on the strap stop on the upper side only. If it feels cheap its because it probably is , even the cheaper must de Cartier was of reasonable quality in the day....

    I wouldn't have dumped it in the trash. I've always had the urge to smash a fake with a hammer, but since I never buy fakes I've never had toe opportunity to do so. I think you should smash it with a hammer and take pictures of it with the new and improved look. It would be a fitting end to that piece of trash watch.

    But fit a battery first. It may work!

    Fakes of this age can be excused..

    I think I would hang onto this one, it did belong to your father. This alone makes it worth holding on to.

    How old are we? Isn't it a bit childish and garish to smash stuff with hammers? Especially something that belonged to his father.

    Grow up.
