Ever since this accomplishment, Cartier has created innovative and elegant watches for both men and women. Cartier helped to popularize wristwatches and later introduced the first ever wristwatch with a square case. Cartier makes watches that vary in design and in price. If you are asking “How much is my Cartier watch worth?” there are several factors that can influence this number. One of the most influential factors is the model and how much it is worth brand new…A Cartier watch that comes with its box and papers can often be worth more than a watch without them. The box offers a great place to store the watch and keep it safe when it is not being worn. The papers prove the Cartier watch’s authenticity, which helps to put a potential buyers’ mind at ease, making them more willing to pay a little bit more for the watch.” Both contemporary and vintage Cartier watches come in a wide array of price points and certain vintage styles are worth more than others.  But, either way, you look at it, an investment in a Cartier watch that is well-maintained is an investment that will likely appreciate in value.  Below are 3 reasons to invest in a vintage Cartier watch.
