Hey!

Just wondering if I were to buy a Cartier bracelet from someone second hand with the certificate also given to me...
If I were to go into a Cartier store say for a clean or any other service, would I be able to get this done?
Or will they refuse as im not the 'original' owner?

i'm guessing they will check the serial number on the system first and the original buyers information will come up, i.e name, gender, age and if it doesn't match my age or gender they'll refuse the service?

Anyone have any idea how it works?

And also if I were to take the certificate to the store with the bracelet can they say whether its authentic?

I have a Cartier watch second hand, not purchased but rather handed down from my mother in law. I've taken it to Cartier for service and strap replacement several times now and I've never been refused service. I wonder if that depends on the boutique. The watch is circa late 1980's.

I went to get my necklace cleaned recently and they didn't ask for any authenication card / receipt. You should be fine - they are generally pretty relaxed.

I think if it has a serial number they do run it against their system to check if it was red-flagged. as long as it's not red-flagged you'll have no problems.
