How much is my Van Cleef & Arpels watch worth?
The beauty of luxury watches is that they tend to retain their value at auction – and Van Cleef & Arpels is no exception. In 2018, a limited edition piece by the firm entitled “Fortuna Faerie” sold for £39,000 at Sotheby’s. The Le Jardin series of one-of-a-kind luxury watches each feature gem-set covers boasting white diamonds, mint tourmalines, blue sapphires and spessartite garnets. Each individual watch in the Le Jardin series took over 2,900 hours to manufacture, and the cheapest has a starting price of £80,000.
Of course, the market value of a watch is largely dependent on its condition – both aesthetically and mechanically. It goes without saying that it’s easier to secure a higher loan on Van Cleef & Arpels watches if the items you possess are in perfect condition, although other factors come into play, which we’ll take a look at now:
Provenance is important
Before the valuation, try to dig out any official documentation you may have. Proof of purchase, certificates of authenticity and documents highlighting any repairs to your watch could all help to increase its market value.
How old is your watch?
Age can affect the value of a luxury watch – as time goes on, older pieces (if not looked after properly) become damaged, thereby reducing the amount of Van Cleef & Arpels watches from that era on the market. That’s not to say modern models aren’t in demand – the brand new Lady Jour des Fleurs model, for example, is so decadent that price is only available upon application. Regardless of how old your item is, it’s still easy to secure loans on Van Cleef & Arpels watches.
Pawning a limited edition Van Cleef & Arpels watch
Before asking yourself “should I pawn my Van Cleef & Arpels watch?”, consider doing a bit of research to find out how rare your model is. Some limited edition pieces, such as the Van Cleef & Arpels Charms Extraordinaire Vendome Watch are incredibly rare (there are only 22 of these luxury watches in existence). If you’re unsure, a member of our team will be able to verify the scarcity of your model and offer you a fair and affordable loan against its value.
