different parts are made by other companies under richemont which is as good as ur gonna get unless u pick some totally vertically integrated company like seiko/rolex. afaik all their shyt is still made in europe unlike other many other "swiss made" companies, i'm looking at you and your chinese bracelets omega.
most have basic movements but ur buying a carti for the design, the prestige, the flashiness, so who cares? if seeing a quartz watch tick would be annoying or make you look poor u can get one without a seconds hand.
this insane cac sums up my thoughts on cartier (watch on 1.5x speed)
