  • In 1847, Louis-François Cartier takes over the jewellery workshop of his master, Adolphe Picard, at 29 rue Montorgueil in Paris. This marks the birth of the Maison Cartier.
  • In 1899, Cartier moves into 13 rue de la Paix, the Maison’s current address. The future of the Maison falls to the three Cartier brothers: Louis, Pierre and Jacques. They travel the world, from India to Russia, from the Persian Gulf to the United States.
  • In 1902 – 1909 branches are opened in London in and New York in. The foundations of the Maison Cartier are laid. Cartier soon wins fame among the royal courts of Europe. The Prince of Wales, who in 1902 was to become Edward VII, proclaims Cartier “Jeweller of Kings and King of Jewellers.”
  • In 1904 he grants the Maison the first Royal warrant as supplier to the court of England. Cartier’s creations are marked by the exotic influences of the civilisations that the three brothers discover on their travels.

How to spot a fake Cartier


It can be quite difficult to tell fake Cartier watches from genuine Cartier watches, but there are a few guidelines you can follow:

Cartier Watch cabochon stone winder


Inscription

The simplest way to tell a fake Cartier watch is to remove the caseback. A genuine Cartier watch will have “Cartier” inscribed on the movement.


Weight

Like most luxury accessories, genuine Cartier watches are quite heavy, especially when compared to the lightweight fakes. This solid weight is due to the watch’s quality materials.


Glass

A genuine Cartier watch has scratch-proof glass, which won’t be found on the fakes. This is something that’s fairly easy to test. The sapphire-quality glass of a genuine Cartier is also non-smear, so if you drop a few beads of water on it, they will roll off. On fake Cartiers it will smear.


Cabochon stone

The winder of a genuine Cartier watch features a polished gemstone, called a cabochon stone. If there’s no stone, it’s a fake Cartier watch. The gem should be securely fastened, not glued on.


Serial Number

This should appear on the back or side of a genuine Cartier. The number will be engraved as a number of fake Cartiers feature a serial number that’s barely etched onto the watch.
