Frequently Asked Questions About Buying A Watch
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 audience play a significant role in the pricing. Watches that come complete with a warranty card, original box, manual, and all accessories achieve a higher price compared to models without these components. At Cologne Watch, we rely on a standardized evaluation process that clearly and transparently takes into account all relevant aspects for you.
Regrettably, there are numerous counterfeits on the market. While many can be recognized by their external features, some require meticulous inspections to be unmasked. In addition to this analysis, at Cologne Watch, we conduct comprehensive functional tests. We check the movement, the accuracy of the timekeeping, and the water resistance of your watch to ensure its authenticity and quality.
If you are unable to visit us personally in our showroom, our shipping partner UPS offers a pickup service for your watch. From the moment of pickup until the completion of the sale, additional insurance provides comprehensive protection against all eventualities. Thus, you are safeguarded from financial risks throughout the entire process.
In the watch market, as in any other market, supply and demand meet. However, the supply of certain watch models is limited. At the same time, there are watch enthusiasts and collectors who are willing to pay higher sums for specific models and vintages than usual. The challenge here is to find the right watch lover.
Thanks to our extensive global network of dealers and enthusiasts at Cologne Watch, we are often able to achieve an above-average price for our clients.
Of course, we also accept broken watches. First, we assess the profitability of a repair. If a repair should prove to be uneconomical, we will make you a fair offer for all functional parts of the watch. Our transparent evaluation process allows you to fully understand our offer and feel confident in your decision.
