Pink ballob bleu 33m croco strap eta

Recommended Posts

Came across this  today when looking through intime site to see what the price difference were on Cartier to other sites

 

https://www.intime05.co/cartier/6273-ballon-bleu-33mm-ss-af-1-1-best-edition-pink-textured-dial-on-pink-croco-leather-strap-cal076.html

 

Claims ETA movement that the cartier movement is based off, pink croco strap - 548usd - which seems steep, will the strap be crap?

 

Mrs A liked the look of it, so need to explore it more.

 

Any thoughts on this watch? Is it a gimmick or real deal with the movement?

No idea, but you can buy decent quartz Cartiers all day long for less than $20 on the Gate.  Its not like its a watch anyone knows anything about.  And women prefer quartz.

I've bought my wife a dozen.

Step up to $40 and you get a decent bracelet.

Does seem steep. Got one for my wife with an A2824 movement and on bracelet for half the price from Joshua.

Just got this in 42 mm blue dial with stainless steel bracelet from trustytime. Took it to my watch repair guy to get it sized, he could scarcely believe it was a replica. Only thing he said that "could"
give it away is the crystal, and this is after he examined it for a looong time. If anyone is interested I can post a review with pictures. I took some but they did not come out too good. Are QC pictures ok to post ?
