MANUFACTURER & MODEL – Whether it’s current, rare, limited edition or discontinued, all aspects that can determine the value of your watch are taken into account by our specialist pawnbroking team.
CONDITION – Restorations, replaced parts, blemishes and dents can all affect value of a fine watch.
AGE – With vintage models, rarity and condition are considered. More contemporary models can hold higher values then slightly dated ones.

How do we appraise all watches?
Before issuing any loans, our expert team must first take the time to properly understand your watch and come to an accurate valuation. You will then be offered a loan amount based on the valuation. For us to carry out a valuation, we ask that you bring your watch in to our premises on Blenheim Street. If this is not possible, alternate arrangements can be made.
Our appraisals are based on the following factors:
There are a number of luxurious watch manufacturers around, such as Rolex, A Lange Sohne, Breguet, Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe. Watches made by such well-known manufacturers are worth more as their reputation for building quality pieces is well-established, and they tend to hold their value much better over time. We will also look at the exact model and reference of your watch and seek to understand just how rare it is. Certain models are more valuable than others because of their age, scarcity, their association with notable people, and other factors.
The age of your watch can have a positive or negative effect on its value, with its condition and rarity being huge factors influencing this. For example, a Rolex Daytona Reference 6421 from 1969 is hugely valuable due to its age, but also thanks to its association with the actor Paul Newman, and also because the Daytona was a niche watch at the time with few units produced. However, if one of these watches is in poor condition and does not work very well, this will significantly undercut its value.
For any item we loan against watches having items such as the original box, guarantee, servicing papers and the original receipt of sale will greatly improve the worth of your watch to us.
