This problem bugs me. Rolex, LV, Chanel ONLY sell their watches in their boutiques. Fine. Some enjoy those watches, some don't. Cartier is one the best and finest watchmakers since 1910. OK. But You "can" buy authentic Cartier watches off the numerous net sites that sell authentic watches. My question is this. Since they sell the new ones and in mint condition with a 20% or more discount PLUS free shipping (ok ok or with $50 US Dollar shipping), it IS CHEAPER THAN BUYING IT IN THE MALL, SHOPPING CENTER, CARTIER BOUTIQUE~ Authentic is Authentic, and I know you can confidently bring it to any Cartier Boutique to have it adjusted, serviced, etc. So, do any of you bought, have stories of those who bought, or dare to purchase a $4000 watch off the Net? Advantages? Disadvantages? TIA!!!!
