A friend received a Cartier Tortue (I believe that is the design, based on comparing it with pictures on-line). The gift giver said disarmingly that it was a fake. I doubt this and assume he was merely attempting to make the receiver feel more comfortable with the extravagance.
Any way to tell? Does the second hand movement on the Cartier tick in quartz-like movement or is it smooth like the Rolex movement? Is there a seriel # that tracks a watch to a Cartier retailer?
