We specialise in watch valuations and can value high-end brands like Rolex and Patek Phillipe. A luxury watch is an investment; when you buy a good timepiece, you want to keep in mind its value retention and have it insured adequately for repair or replacement.
It isn’t just precious metal watches that sustain value; many fine steel watches can maintain – or even increase – their value. Bear in mind, however, that not all watches retain or increase in value. Depending on the brand, some depreciate and decrease in value over time.
Many factors can influence the value of your watch. The most common factor is the brand name. Big names such as Rolex and Patek Philippe command a bigger price tag, even when they’re second hand. This is due to the brand recognition of well-established names, mainly because they make such high-quality products.
These brands will almost always retain their value, or become more valuable over time, especially if they are unique. However, condition is also a key factor and damage, or marking, can lower the value of your watch. The third factor is the scarcity, or rarity, of the watch and how many other versions are still in circulation.
Our experts will ensure your watch is closely inspected and perform a full assessment of your watch’s movement, followed by a serial number and model check. We will provide a report that you can keep for your records and send to your insurer if required.
