Can anyone help me identify this Cartier watch, of course assuming it’s even real..
It has a 0089 stamp and plat stamp as well, diamonds definitely look real but I think there are a couple red flags.
First being the cursive Cartier font, seems unusual. Secondly there are no Cartier stamps on the back of the watch.
The automatic movement still seems to work, although it is very fast. I'd imagine this watch hasn't seen the light of day in decades so is in desperate need of a service.. or it could just be fake.
Any info, if anyone has any ideas, would be greatly appreciated!

Hmmmm, I'm really tempted to say fake, dial is misaligned and I'm wondering if that is WG.
yea I’m all but certain it’s fake as well. Odd thing is I’m fairly sure the diamonds are real, not sure why somebody would put real diamonds on a fake watch?

jbpats0823...Hello!

To my mind, the only way to be 'sure' ( always a dangerous word, yes? ), is to get a look at the Movement. With this watch, the back simply pops-off: there's a notch between the back of the case, and the case, itself; a knife-like tool's pushed into this notch, and the back is released. If you don't have a case-opener, a dull bladed knife will work...although, perhaps it's best if you ask a local Independent Watchmaker to assist you.

Good luck.

Michael.

For those following at home I have more information on this watch.
It seems to be an authentic Cartier watch with a J.Schulz movement. So while not a sought after Cartier it’s still something.
The case is 14k gold and the bracelet seems to have been made for it after the fact.
The bracelet is confirmed to be platinum and diamonds.

no idea on value but it’s in interesting piece to say the least.
