    Hi , I think you would agree if you tested the case to see if it was gold , then indeed it would be real, I don't think anyone would case a fake quartz in a gold case. So to answer you it probably is real if the case is real gold.

    I can't tell you what the movement number would be, but it should at least say Cartier on it. It is common for Cartier watches to be gold plated over sterling silver.

    It comes across to me as a fake.

    Argent 925 indicates it is Silver, Sterling Silver.
    Where did you get the "gold" from in your answers?

    Anyway, it may be real. Must de Cartier made some awful stuff before Cartier got consolidated to what it is today.

    Must de Cartier are 925 silver and gold plated. No gold which is mirrored in the price of MdC watches.
    Kind regards

    Mike, should it not say Vermeil if it was gold plated? I know there are some yellow parts on the case, but maybe it is the brass showing through the Silver Plaing (if Fake)

    Show us the movement. That will ell us if it is a real 80's MdC or a HK fake.
