What makes an Audemars Piguet watch so valuable?
As you might imagine, not all Audemars Piguet watches have the same value. Instead, depending on a number of factors, your watch could be worth significantly more than another seemingly identical watch. Before you ask yourself ‘should I pawn my Audemars Piguet watch’, you should first get a basic understanding of how much you can expect to get for it. So, here is a basic outline of the 4-step guide that our expert appraisers follow.
What condition is it in?
Regardless of any of the following categories for valuing your fine watch, the condition is of paramount importance. A watch that has been well cared for and admired will have held on to far more of its value and be much more desirable for collectors. Note that the condition of your Audemars Piguet watch refers to its outside appearance as well as its functionality on the inside.
How old is it?
As with any collectable item, the age of your watch has the potential to greatly increase its price due to increased rarity. Audemars Piguet first began manufacturing watches back in 1875. In 1892 they created the first ever repeater wristwatch. Holding one such watch that is over one hundred years old would be worth an extremely large sum amongst fine watch collectors, of course depending on its condition.
What model is it?
Audemars Piguet have built a number of different models of watches in the last one and a half centuries, some of which have been a success and others which have not been. Certain models are more desirable, notably the Jules Audemars, Millenary and Royal Oak collections. The Jules Audemars made today are based on the original design of this range from 1875. Loans against Audemars Piguet watches, from any of these ranges, are sure to be higher.
What provenance do you hold?
Lending against Audemars Piguet watches is much easier for a pawnbroker who can see what sort of provenance you hold. Your watch will act as far more valuable collateral if it includes things such as proof of purchase, certificates of authenticity and a service history.
