WHAT IS THE POLISHING SERVICE?


The Polishing Service allows your Cartier watch to rediscover its original shine and brilliance.


Nevertheless, given that the removal of a thin layer of metal is involved, Cartier recommends you not to have this service carried out more than eight times in the lifetime of a watch made of yellow gold. Since it also requires that the movement be uncased, polishing is systematically accompanied by a Maintenance or Complete Service.


Performed by a Cartier specialist polisher, the Polishing Service includes the following operations:

  • The case and the bracelet are disassembled;
  • The movement and related parts are removed from the case;
  • the surfaces of the case, case back, clasp and bracelet are reworked in three stages:
  • felting: superficial scratches are removed using a very hard brush and a very abrasive paste; it should be noted however that certain deep scratches cannot be removed;
  • shining: the final shine is given using a soft brush and a fine paste;
  • the different parts of the watch are reassembled.
