    Default Cartier Question

    I have a chance to pick up a gen Cartier Santos Dumont from a reputable gen dealer who is going out of business. The watch is in very good shape however, he states that he had to replace the automatic movement which died with a quartz movement. My question is, is that possible to switch and auto to a quartz? Watch is small 32x36 and thought I would pick it up for the wife.
    There is nothing worse than being alone. But it often takes decades to realize this and most often it's too late, and there's nothing worse than too late

    Sounds fishy.
    Crown case hole position for auto and quartz are off by 1mm.
    He may be selling you a rep.

    Even if gen dealer is going out of business, Cartier will replace the movement for free as part of their brand new watch warranty? Surely the watch comes with a brand new warranty? There is also the difference in the value of a quartz and auto.
