Help Desk: Help deleting a post

Hello, I have a question. I recently submitted a post as I needed help identifying a vintage watch. I would like to delete this post, as well as the pictures and the responses, for privacy and confidentiality issues. Could you please let me know how can I delete the post? Thank you in advance! Kind

Cartier: Thank you, Geo.

The folding buckle is non adjustable, but it is from the 60s-70s. As you know, the original ones from the 30's had a hand stamped number. I think it is possible this watch had a gold bracelet or another kind of a folding buckle that had to be replaced at some point, probably in the 1960's-70's...

Cartier: Thank you!

The watch from the pictures is from around 1937. The hand stamped numbers on the back of my watch are actually a lower number...;-) Those numbers on the picture correspond to the case number, the mechanism number, and the numbers in between (which look almost erased) and most likely a Cartier invent

Cartier: Interesting...

Thank you for the picture of the Tank Normale. Interestingly enough, the seller only described the watch as being a 1960's tank. When I saw the numbers on the back, I thought they definitely did not look from the 1960's (aside from face and hands that could be changed or restored). The seller made n

Cartier: Thank you!

Yes, I know about the Cartier Tradition department in Geneva. They actually have a new Director, as I heard Mr. Berger has recently retired, but to be honest I had not thought about the possibility that the watch could have been a restored piece.

Cartier: In addition...

if someone would go to all the trouble of trying to fake a 1920's Tank, why would they advertise it as coming from the 1960's! If they faked the enamelled dial, the Breguet hands, the case back, etc. they might as well try to sell the watch as "1920's", not 1960's! The watch is 18K yellow gold (this

Cartier: Thank you, Geo!

Thank you very much for your feedback, Geo. The way the numbers are stamped on the back of the case also make me think of an early model, but judging by the condition of the face and the hands, I find it difficult to believe it could be. The Piguet Caliber 21 is also strange, as an early Tank would

Cartier: Thank you

Yes, I think I might have to bring it to Paris on my next trip. Unfortunately, not all Cartier boutiques have the level of expertise required to help with vintage pieces...

Cartier: Piguet Caliber 21 Movement

Thank you very much. In case it is useful to know, as additional information, the watch features a Frédéric Piguet Caliber 21 movement...

Cartier: the sapphire on the crown...

If I might add something, the wat the sapphire is set in the crown is also not right...plus the colour looks too light to me. I have seen this in fakes before...
