The value of a watch is determined by various factors. In addition to the manufacturer, model, age and condition, aspects such as rarity or the target group also play an important role in pricing.

At Cologne Watch, we rely on a standardized valuation process that clearly and comprehensively covers all relevant aspects. Transparent taken into account for you.

Unfortunately, there are numerous counterfeits on the market. While many are recognizable by external features, some require careful inspection to be unmasked. In addition to this analysis, at Cologne Watch we carry out comprehensive functional tests. We check the movement, accuracy and water resistance of your watch to ensure its authenticity and quality.

If you are unable to visit us in person at our showroom, our shipping partner UPS offers a collection service for your watch.
