Haven't been in here for a while. Need some help, wife took Cartier roadster into swimming pool, realize it's not waterproof or the seals are gone. Who would you recommend aside from Cartier?

Thanks in advanced.

Sorry to hear that. I would contact Al Archer. I don't know if he's still taking on work. If not, perhaps he could point you in the right direction.

Cartier doesn't sell parts to independent watchmakers. Your only option is Cartier if it needs parts that are specific to the brand. Even if it uses a generic movement, it sounds like it will need case parts - new case back seal and crown. If water has damaged the dial or hands those would also be impossible to get....

Cheers, Al

Make sure you tighten the screw on the Tang Buckle!


I was lucky when mines came out I was at home and not on the street, go to a dollarstore and find a 1.6MM precision screwdriver and make sure that is screwed in.

Everest website but it's about ~370 CAD after tax and duties from DHL


During xmas they said it's up to 15-25% off if you can wait that long. I've seen some Rubber B's sold on Kijiji

Whatever makes you happy! It isn't about the value of the collection but the joy you get from it so wear them in good health!

I have plenty of lower end Citizen watches that sentimentally mean more to me than the more expensive watches in my collection (which frankly are easier to let go of due to value)

Does anyone know of any Laco or Stowa dealers in Canada?

I see there's one Laco dealer in Ajax ON, but I'm in Montreal. As for Stowa, do they only sell direct? I'd love to pick up an original aviator from either company, but ideally I'd like to see it first.
