Vintage Cartier Watches For Women

If you are looking for a stunning watch for a lady you really cannot go wrong with a Cartier. When it comes to style and class Cartier watches beat the rest.

Their iconic watches have stood the test of time. They are as popular today as they ever were, particularly with women. Their classy, yet elegant design works as well with a business suit as it does with a little black dress.

The company produces a huge range of watches for women from the relatively plain and understated Santos models, one of which is pictured here, to their jewel encrusted numbers. Cartier Ballon Bleu watches for women are beautiful, ornate pieces of jewellery in their own right.

... a great example of Cartier style

Cartier never forget that women appreciate jewellery that is functional as well as beautiful. Many of there models, including the Panthere, have a calendar built into the face.

Most of the Cartier Panthere watches that are currently available are made from yellow gold. It is a style of watch Cartier still make, but the original Panthère de Cartier watches from the mid 1980s are still the most popular. There is a thriving second hand market for them.

The watch shown, is the W25014B9, which is quite a rare model and style. However, it is a popular one because the bevel has a double row of stones rather than a single row, which is more typical of Cartier dress watches for women.

Used Cartier watches for women present a particularly good investment opportunities, because starting prices are so low. However, you need to know which ones hold their value and which ones go in and out of fashion.

Cartier Tank watch prices are extremely stable. You can pick up a Cartier steel watch for around $500, but if you want to buy a Tank watch made from gold and diamonds you may have to invest as much as $25,000.

For investment purposes he best vintage Cartier watches are in fact all men's models...sorry ladies. They are Cartier Roadsters, which start at $3,500 for a basic model and go up to $27,000 for gold models.

Moving forward the Astrotourbillon and the Cadran Love Tourbillon look set to become collector's items for the future. Some of the watches in the The Ballon Bleu collection also look set to be good long-term investments. The fact you can buy unisex versions makes them particularly interesting, from an investment point of view, because there is a potentially bigger second hand market for them.

Investing in watches is by no means a dead cert. You never really know for sure what the market will do. Therefore, it makes sense to build a collection of watches you really like and will enjoy wearing yourself.
