Welcome to the National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors Message Board.

The Must be Cartier watches are gold plated on sterling silver. At the price you mentioned, I don't know whether he had a Cartier (18 karat), or a Must de Cartier. Note the difference in name). That is the first decision you have to make. As to whether or not the ones on ebay are real? I'm afraid you are on your own on that one. The Cartier "tank" is one of the most imitated (and outright faked) watches on the market. I don't want this to sound like a commercial, but there are members of the NAWCC who deal in gently used watches. I think they would be a better risk than some anonymous individual on an on-line auction.
