Watch Valuation

Some sources estimate that today well-selected and carefully assembled collections of high quality in-demand vintage wristwatches from the 1900s have become rapidly appreciating collectible assets. (1) Yet this field remains fraught with significant risk, as well.
Although buyers sometimes select beautiful wristwatches at attractive prices that rise in value quickly, some brands and models of watches do not appreciate at all. Additionally, counterfeit vintage watches have become a significant problem in the modern era. As with many types of items, some companies have produced incorrectly labeled wristwatches that do not possess the high quality of real designer watches. Watchempire offers watch valuation services which may prove helpful in avoiding costly mistakes as you begin adding more pieces to your vintage watch collection.

  • You’d like to know the current estimated costs of repairing a vintage watch;

  • You want to have a watch repair expert evaluate the condition of a badly damaged vintage watch in your watch collection.

A Challenging Decision

A valuation service by an experienced watch repairer may prove very helpful to anyone seeking to decide whether or not spending money to repair a broken watch makes financial sense. Should you sell a watch that requires repairs, or endeavor to fix the watch before placing it on the market? Is an older watch a vintage, collectible watch? How should you evaluate the condition of a wristwatch in your collection?

Whenever you encounter this type of dilemma, you can ask Watchempire to assist you by performing an evaluation of the condition of your vintage watch or watches. We can evaluate entire vintage watch collections.
