What is my watch worth?
We often get asked this question, and the answer is not always simple. There are many factors to consider when determining the value of any pre-owned watch. The brand, model, age, rarity, condition are just examples. It is often confusing to find examples on the Internet that vary widely in price.
Contact us and we will try to help. You can also find books and watch price guides that deal specifically in antique / vintage watch prices. I can recommend a few below.
Vintage Watch Price Guide
