Watch Strap replacement

How do I purchase a replacement strap for my Cartier timepiece?

We offer replacement straps for Cartier watches as a way to personalize and care for your timepiece. To purchase a new strap please bring your Cartier watch to a Cartier boutique, an authorized retailer of Cartier watches, or request care service online. For more information please call 1-800-227-8437 to speak with a service advisor.

Replacement straps must be installed by a watchmaker or trained specialist, as each strap must be perfectly fitted to your timepiece. For this reason we do not offer straps directly online.

What is the price range of a replacement strap?

The price of replacement straps depends on the material of the strap and style for your specific Cartier model.  Replacement straps in alligator skin for current Cartier models start at approximately $350. Special order colors, straps for retired Cartier models, and special strap attachments may have an additional cost. Replacement buckles are also available for purchase.


How long does it take to replace a Cartier watch strap?

The ordering and fitting of a replacement strap generally ranges between 2 - 8 weeks depending upon your watch model and the material and color you select for the strap.  Replacement straps in standard colors for current collection watch models can often be replaced within two weeks or on-the-spot when visiting a Boutique.

How can I best maintain my Cartier watch strap?

The care and tests that we devote to Cartier watch straps ensure that they are of the highest quality. The lifespan of your watch strap is dependent upon the material, how often it is worn, and the conditions in which it is used. Please remember that contact with water, perspiration or other liquids may accelerate wear of the strap. When enjoyed daily under normal conditions, the average lifespan of a strap is between six and twelve months.


Are replacement straps included in my warranty?

Straps are not covered under Cartier's watch warranty program. We recommend that you replace your strap regularly to protect the condition of your watch.


Does Cartier ensure responsible sourcing of materials for watch straps?

Cartier and their suppliers ensure that the products and components do not contain toxic substances that could be harmful to humans.
