    Identifying factory diamonds on a pave Tank Louis?

    A few years back I picked up an 18k full diamond case and bracelet Tank Louis and I was told that it was purchased at the boutique in Harrods some years before. I would like to know if there are any telltale signs to look for to either confirm or dispell the idea that the diamonds including center of dial are original? Thank you very much!

    Determining the quality of the diamonds should Give you an idea, but determining authenticity requires an expert. I suggest that you either take it to a Cartier boutique or to one of their service centers. Good luck.

    Yes I tried that at the boutique near me and when they consulted the "very experienced" watch guy out back he declared that they NEVER made bracelets that were not butterfly. I also contacted the folks at the Harrods boutique and they "don't keep records". We had it appraised for insurance and while he didn't pass judgement on originality he graded the stones E-F vvs so they are nice quality.
