Can anyone tell me if all Cartier Tank Watch movements were signed Cartier. I have a very, very old one in which the movement does not have the cartier name on it? Any help would be appreciated. Thank You.
Thanks Ray, no, I am not sure it is a real Cartier, but find it hard to believe that a watch this old would be a copy. The movement is not marked Cartier as far as I can tell. This watch was among my grandfather's things and I just don't think he would have worn a fake copy. However, since I didn't purchase it, I can't be sure. How would I tell? thanks for time.
Could we have a pic of the dial? As it stands, I agree with Ray. The quality just isn't there in this example. The movement looks Russian to me, especially the design of the shock device on the balance cock. Perhaps a "Zarja" calibre. I imagine your Grandfather owned it as a curiosity rather than to fool anyone.
