Frequently asked questions
Recognising our longstanding quality and expertise in the pre-owned watch sector, Cartier has appointed Watchfinder & Co. as one of their first ever official pre-owned watch partners. Every single one of our Cartier watches* has been meticulously inspected, authenticated and prepared by our trusted team of expert watchmakers and now comes with a 24-month Cartier warranty as standard.
*Watches manufactured before 2007 are excluded.
The 24-month Cartier International Official Pre-Owned Warranty is offered with watches that were manufactured from 2007 onwards, but excludes any watches sold by our certified sellers through our Marketplace.
Should your watch stop working properly within this period, you can contact either Watchfinder, a Cartier Boutique, a Cartier authorized retailer or Cartier authorised aftersales centre for support, presenting your warranty card.
You can return it for inspection and diagnosis at any of these locations, and if the fault is covered by the warranty, it will be repaired free of charge.
Please note the warranty covers manufacturing and mechanical defects only.

If your Cartier watch was manufactured before 2007, it will come with a 24-month Watchfinder Warranty. If your watch develops a fault and is still covered by warranty, you can return it to us to be diagnosed by submitting a warranty enquiry. If the fault is covered by the warranty, it will be repaired free of charge.
You can find more information on our dedicated Watchfinder Warranty page.
These watches are still meticulously inspected and prepared by our highly trained, manufacturer-accredited watchmakers, and have undergone the same rigorous testing regime, using manufacturer-approved tools and equipment, to ensure its condition, accuracy, efficiency and water-resistance meet brand specifications.
