Cartier is a brand synonymous with luxury. The French jewellery and wristwatch manufacturer is one of the most esteemed names in the luxury goods market, with their products being highly desired throughout the world.

One area of particular excellence is their line of men’s wristwatches, which is home to some of the most breath-taking collections in world today. Featuring gorgeous designs, high quality construction, and plenty of styles to suit anyone, it’s clear why they are such an esteemed watch manufacturer.

For example, the round Pasha de Cartier was first introduced in 1942 and is a timepiece that exudes excellence with every inch, becoming one of the most sought-out watches for collectors and aficionados for its brilliant style and craftsmanship.

Cartier Pasha W31085M7F

The Cartier Pasha W31085M7 is a prime example of this, being a stunning piece that embodies elegance and luxury. A highly versatile piece, it looks amazing for any style from smart to sporty, making it all the more alluring.

The stainless-steel case is a timeless style that works great with the pristine white dial, and this 42mm chronograph really brings a modern design to the classic Pasha de Cartier collection.

As result of this however, there are many fake replicas of this particular wristwatch, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to tell the difference between a fake and a genuine Cartier Pasha W31085M7.

Fake Vs Genuine

So how exactly does one determine whether a Cartier Pasha W31085M7 is fake or genuine? Well, there are many signs to be on the lookout for, with some being easier to spot than others.

Once it becomes clear what indicates a fake from a genuine W31085M7, it should be simple enough to spot a bad replica.

Inscription

Perhaps the easiest way to tell a genuine Cartier W31085M7 from a fake is the inscription. All genuine Cartier wristwatches has ‘Cartier’ carefully inscribed on the movement found in the back of movement, along with an inscription of the serial number W31085M7.

So, with the W31085M7, remove the caseback to view the inscription etched onto the calibre powering the watch. Additionally, the serial number ‘W31085M7’ can be seen just above the transparent caseback of the watch.

For the most part the majority of replica Cartier W31085M7 replicas will have no inscriptions on the movement. However, there is often fake serial number inscriptions as they are easier to imitate, but the engravings are notably lower in quality and will be barely etched on to the stainless-steel case.

Weight

Another common way to determine a fake Cartier W31085M7 from an authentic is the weight of the watch. This watch, like all other Cartier wristwatches, uses only the best materials to construct the case and calibre, resulting in a fair amount of weight to the piece.

Therefore, if a W31085M7 feels rather light in weight, it could be an indication that it is in fact a fake.

Glass

Again, this is all down to the quality materials used with a genuine watches compared to those used in a Cartier replica. The glass in a genuine W31085M7 is 100% scratch-poof, the same cannot be said for replicas.

Sapphire-quality glass present in the W31085M7 means that it will be near impossible to scratch, making it another easy way to compare a genuine vs fake. Also, the glass is non-smear, so if any water hits the surface and smears instead of rolling off, it’s another sign of it being a fake.

Cabochon

The cabochon of a watch is firmly secured to the crown, and with luxury watches such as those from Cartier, will always feature a polished gemstone. Fakes tend to not have a gemstone fitted to the winder, but some may have poor replicas – they tend to be loosely fitted however, making them easier to spot.

With the Cartier W31085M7, there is a screw down crown set with a blue synthetic sapphire cabochon. Its rather notable thanks to the vibrancy of the blue, and given that the dials are a similar color, it should be quite a clear indicator that the watch is in fact genuine.

Fakes will have no blue sapphire, or at least a poor replica that is glued down, so check how secure the cabochon feels with the W31085M7 if it’s unclear.

Cartier remains on the most renowned luxury goods manufacturers in the world today. They are a brand that exudes elegance with every product, be it their range of stunning jewellery or incredible wristwatch collections.

The Cartier men’s wristwatch collection remains one of the most desired for collectors, celebrities, and even royalty, with some of the world’s most affluent regularly seen wearing a Cartier timepiece.

Hallmarks of a Cartier wristwatch includes elegant designs, unmatched craftsmanship, robust functions, and just an all-round beautiful piece. There’s a reason Cartier are regarded among the best watch manufacturers after all!

Cartier Tourbillon W6920021

Perhaps one of the finest examples of a Cartier wristwatches is the breath-taking Cartier Tourbillon W6920021.

You could be forgiven for regarding this particular watch as a piece of art rather than simply a timepiece, as this is simply an incredible example of luxury watchmaking.

It was the first Cartier crafted watch to feature the Geneva Seal hallmark, marking yet another lofty achievement for the already esteemed watch manufacturer.

The Cartier Tourbillon W6920021 is an extra-large (46mm) Flying Tourbillion model with a 18K white gold case, Cartier 9452MC Calibre, slate guilloche dial with blue hands (stylised as swords) and roman numeral hour markers, and is finished with a luxurious black alligator leather strap.

All-in-all, a beautifully designed watch that is constructed with some of the highest watchmaking skills found toady.

Because of its reputation however, there are many fake Cartier Tourbillon W6920021 replicated and sold, and they can often be difficult to spot from the real thing.

Fake Vs Genuine

Determining whether a Cartier Tourbillon W6920021 is fake or genuine can be difficult if you are unsure of what to look for, but thankfully it can become simple to notice these once you understand what they are.

Inscription

One of the first areas to inspect in Cartier Tourbillon W6920021 to see if it’s the real thing is the inscriptions.

All movements crafted by Cartier will feature a ‘Cartier’ engraving, which can be viewed when removing the transparent caseback. The Cartier Tourbillon W6920021 features a Cartier 9543MC calibre, and should feature an inscription.

Likewise, the serial number is etched onto the white gold case of the watch and is another sign that it is authentic.

However, these can be imitated for replica models, so be sure to thoroughly inspect all inscriptions on the Cartier Tourbillon W6920021. A fake version will have poorly imitated inscriptions that will is of a much lower quality.

Weight

Any real watch will have significant weight to it thanks to the quality materials used to craft the timepiece, so a fake Cartier is noticeably lighter when weighed. In simple terms, if a Cartier Tourbillon W6920021 feels particularly light compared to other luxury watches, its more than likely a fake.

Glass

The Cartier Tourbillon W6920021 uses sapphire crystal for the glass in the watch, meaning it will be fully scratch-proof. So, should the W6920021 feature scratches of any kind on the glass surfaces, it’s a clear indicator of a replica.

Additionally, this material is non-smear, meaning that any water that makes contact with the glass should just roll off without leaving any sort of smear mark. If this isn’t the case, then the Cartier Tourbillon W6920021 will be a fake.

Cabochon

The cabochon of the Cartier Tourbillon W6920021 is a polished gem-stone, which is a hallmark of all luxury wristwatches so should be a great way to tell if it’s a fake or not. It is firmly secured to the white gold crown of the Cartier Tourbillon W6920021 and is made from a polished sapphire.

This should be rather apparent, as the blue cabochon matches the color of the Cartier W6920021’s hands, so if there is no gemstone then its good sign of a replica. This model also features an arch over the crown and cabochon, making it one of the notable hallmarks of the Cartier Tourbillon W6920021 design.

There are often fake cabochons attached however (although not always), so it may not be enough to simply look at this feature. Instead, you should feel the crown and the cabochon attached to it, as it will not feel 100% secure due it usually being glued down.

If you are reading this then you are surely one of us, one of those who are passionate about luxury watches. The problem with these beautiful designer timepieces is that they have an exaggerated price. Not everyone can afford to spend a fortune on a Rolex. Luckily for us, there is the option of buying a replica instead. The thing you should consider here is the quality and accuracy of the design. If you have enough patience and knowledge about the original product then you can browse the web until you find the perfect replica for you.

Watchesforever.cn is one of those websites that attempt to convince us that its knockoffs are the best fakes out there. Unfortunately, its website doesn’t inspire the same message. The problem with it is that it is poorly made and it shows a huge lack of attention to important details. I am saying this because the background has Christmas as main theme. And it’s May already! The page is decorated with holiday gifts and socks. Moving on, there are two menu bars. One is on the top part of the page and it features buttons only for the main brands and the second one is on the left side of the page and it displays all the available company names. In the center of the page there are 3 sliding banners and below a few sponsored products.

The company has a pretty large collection of replica watches. It features numerous famous brands and every single one of them has a couple hundred different items. The very interesting thing is that there are even some categories with over 1000 products, like Omega or Patek Philippe. What I have noticed and can’t understand yet is why this website does not have Rolex watches in its collection. Rolex is one of the most popular timepieces in the world and not offering this brand is something unusual. The majority of online replica stores carry this company.

The brands are organized into sub-collections which is a real help for us when we are looking for a specific model. Another great thing is the price filter included in the lower left side of the page. This can be used to filter the items and display just the one that meets our budget. Speaking of our budget, these fake timepieces are quite affordable. All the prices are in USD and vary depending on the complexity of the design and the materials used for manufacturing it. There are some models that start at $100 and some that cost about $300. Most of the models are equipped with a 21 jewels Asian movement while others have a quartz movement. I did not see any Swiss movement watches on this website.

It is important for an online company to offer good quality pictures that provide a preview of the quality you will be receiving if you order them. Sadly, this store does not seem to have this type of images. The photos posted here are clearly copied from a couple different catalogs. Indeed, they show the products from several different angles, but the truth is that you can’t trust them. Especially if you consider the fact that the pictures have the watermark of a different company Watchjust.com

Curious to see if the replica watches are authentic looking I have compared an authentic Omega Speedmaster with a replica. Unfortunately there are too many aesthetic differences to consider that these knockoffs are decent quality. The dial is the main issue. Here we notice that the writing at 12 o’clock is different. Instead of saying “Omega Speedmaster Professional” it says “Omega Speedmaster Automatic Chronometer”. Another issue is with the sub-dials these do not correspond to the original ones which are lower in the middle part and raised on the margins. The fake one has plain sub-dials. The bezel is also different. The indexes and letters on it are thicker than on the genuine model.

Watchesforever.cn has the huge advantage of delivering packages worldwide. There is a flat shipping fee applied for shipping. Regardless of the delivery country or weight of the package, the shipping fee is $20 per order. Most packages are dispatched by EMS and the estimated delivery time is about 10-14 business days.

There are only two accepted payment options, Visa and Mastercard which is actually quite disappointing. No one argues the popularity and liability of these two card types, but sometimes it is nice to know that you have alternatives, especially if you are the kind of person who doesn’t want to put his card details out there. Another worrisome aspect is the fact that the payment processing page isn’t secure. Basically, anyone can hack the page and access your details fraudulently.

The company does provide a return policy, but its conditions are not that fair for us, the customers. The main issue is that there is a restocking fee which applies to all returns. If you want to send the watch back for a refund then you need to pay a $20-$40 fee whereas for exchanges there is a $10-$20 fee. Furthermore, the customer pays all the shipping back fees. In the end, you will be paying more to return the product than to buy a new one.

As far as customer service goes, don’t get your hopes up. This store isn’t the type that provides professional customer care. It does not have a contact phone number and a live chat. It just includes a Contact Form on its page and a Gmail account. I find the latter option as very insecure and unprofessional. All decent e-shops should have a professional business address where customer can send securely their inquiries.

Watchesforever.cn isn’t the ideal source for buying replica watches that will last forever. Just like any other fake timepieces website, it carries a wide selection of knockoffs at low prices, but there are other aspects that discourage us from buying its products. And these are: the unreliable product pictures, the limited selection of payment methods.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Quartz

When the Royal Oak was unveiled in 1972 it took the entire watch world by surprise. Back then, luxury timepieces were extravagant dressy models manufactured from solid gold and of considerably small size. Audemars Piguet chose to break the rules and master the unique art of creating timeless watches that defy conventions and everything that is considered ordinary. Its timepieces are luxury sports models made from amazing steel with a powerful design that revolutionizes modern watchmaking.

AUTHENTIC

AUTHENTIC

The avant-garde style of the Royal Oak has become its most notable trademark. With over 50 years of ruling the watches industry, this remarkable icon is defining for the brand’s excellence and innovative spirit. The tapisserie dial, the octagonal bezel, the masculine steel case and the integrated bracelet are just a few of the things that certify the model as a magnificent timepiece.

Royal Oak replica

Getting an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak fake right isn’t easy. It is a task that challenges many replica manufacturers and only a few succeed to clone it correctly. The most notable mistakes are usually found on the dial of the watch. This is the part that features most complications, thus the most difficult to imitate. The tapisserie pattern is the detail that catches your eye and invites you to discover more about the product. AP uses a special raised rectangular dial that has a unique shine. It is not completely matte just as it is not very shinny. Classy is the word that describes it best. For fakes it is very difficult to make this tapisserie pattern with the correct size of the raised squares. Still, there are other differences that are even more obvious as you can very well see when comparing the pictures of the replica with the one of the authentic Royal Oak. The writing on this replica is all wrong. First of all, the AP logo and the “AUDEMARS PIGUET” name from the dial are larger than the ones on the genuine timepiece. Secondly, the replica has an extra writing at 6 o’clock which says “QUARTZ”. This isn’t found on the fake AP. Next there are the silver hour markers with luminescent coating. These are thin and long batons on the original watch, but on the replica their shape and thickness is way off. The knockoff has shorter, thicker and rounder hour markers that look totally different than the real ones.

Royal Oak Replica

The thing that is easy recognizable on an AP Royal Oak watch is its unique octagonal shaped bezel manufactured from stainless steel and attached with eight hexagonal screws. Most often, this part of the timepiece is cloned correctly as it is not very complex. A quick look at the images of the replica and of the genuine watch proves this. The bezel has the correct shape and look. It even has the nice vertical brushing surface that is defining for Audemars Piguet.

The brand is a true artisan when it comes to creating comfortable and stylish stainless steel cases. The bold and masculine stainless steel case of the Royal Oak involves an extensive technical production process and the result is extremely pleasing, still it is not something that difficult to replicate visually. This is why the brushed case, the pushers and the integrated metallic bracelet of this watch are very nice imitated on the replica watch. When you compare these two you can’t see any visible differences.

Fake Audemars Piguet Band

The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak is a watch that stands out from the crowd. It is a modern and sturdy model that is iconic for avant-garde horology. Its charismatic dial, uniquely shaped bezel and rugged case recommend it for outgoing men with a pronounced sense of fashion.

Breitling Navitimer 50th Anniversary

The Navitimer is the modern tribute to the classic aviator chronograph watch. With a unique and attractive style, the timepiece invites you to a world where the spirit of aviation and tradition are peerless values. With its ingenious slide rule and a design catered for professional pilots, this superior instrument gained its cult status in the field of aviation.

GENUINE

The first Breitling Navitimer was introduced in 1952 and its success was unparalleled. The model was selected as the official watch of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA). This special decoration is also the reason why the B winged logo is found on almost every Navitimer dial. It is a symbol for the amazing collaboration between pilots and Breitling. The brand’s achievements continued in 1962 when its special edition Navitimer named Cosmonaute went into space on the wrist of astronaut, Scott Carpenter. The timepiece is also famous for its role as the preferred watch of James Bond in the 1965 “Thunderball” movie starring Captain Derval.

replica breitling limited edition

The amazing success of the Breitling Navitimer has turned it into a much sought after timepiece, not just for those who can afford it, but also for people that would rather pay a couple hundred dollars for a knockoff. This lead to the growth of a replica market where you can find all types of qualities Navitimer fakes at various prices. The trick here is knowing what the key attributes of an authentic looking replica are, a thing that we will discuss below by comparing the images of a special edition Breitling Navitimer 50th anniversary replica with the ones of the authentic product. This model was launched in 2002 and it is a rare collectible.

Breitling A41322 Replica

The Breitling Navitimer is legendary for its bi-directional rotating bezel with a slide rule on the outer ring that turns the watch into a navigation calculator with a sleek chronograph. The rule serves for calculating average speeds, fuel consumption, climb and descent rates and other essential navigation data. The ratched stainless steel bezel allows easy grip and overall handling. The design of this rule is very important when it comes to a knockoff. The bezel is complex and this makes it difficult to replicate. This can be seen when you take a look at the pictures of the fake Navitimer. The outer metallic part of the bezel doesn’t have the same look. The easy grip margins are more rugged and have pronounced corners whereas the ones on the replica are more rounded. Also, the inside rule has different style of indexes and gradations. The font is different, the size of the numbers is smaller and the gradations are not as spaced apart and long as on the genuine watch.

50th anniversary A41322 Dial

The 50th Anniversary Breitling Navitimer comes with a black dial, three white subdials and a date window that is located between 4 and 5 o’clock. The face of the watch is a little bit crowded as on all types of Breitling watches, but its core quality is also present- it has an intriguingly superior legibility. Now, regarding our replica watch this doesn’t have such a poorly cloned dial, but there are small differences that give it away and these are: the 50th anniversary logo which is in a different shade of gold, smaller and more spaced apart from the 12 o’clock hour marker, the date aperture that says “DATE” above it when it should have this word printed below it, the seconds hand has a different type of arrow tip, and the 3 small dials that with incorrect markings.

Fake A41322

The case of the watch measures 42.1 mm, is 15 mm thick and is manufactured from solid stainless steel which has been completely brushed. The solid case back is made from the same material and has the same brushed finish. Also, the rear of the watch features the specific Navitimer markings, plus the 50th anniversary logo and wording. Unfortunately, the pictures of our replica show a Navitimer that has only the front of the case brushed, the back is polished and instead of the special edition logo on the center of the case back it appears to have the winged symbol.

Breitling 50th anniversary fake watch

Breitling Navitimer is one of the most popular chronographs in the world of classic aviation watches. It is the undeniable star of the Breitling collection, a professional instrument that has served as an essential method of calculations for generations of pilots. Its heritage goes on even in the modern days by being an exceptional ally both on land and in the air.
