We provide an authentication service for all high-end Swiss watches. This involves opening the watch up and verifying that the movement, case and the bracelet are genuine. We check any accompanying paperwork and make sure all reference and serial numbers match. We check the condition of the watch and advise the owner on the suggested service process. We then reseal the watch and conduct a pressure test to ensure the watch is waterproof. As experts in our field, we guarantee not to mark or damage the case in any way. If requested, we can also provide an estimated value of your watch.
The process usually takes us around 20 minutes and is a while you wait service. We charge $200 for the verbal authentication, or for an additional $100, we provide a letter with the watch reference details and condition report for personal records and insurance records. This letter will be emailed to you after two business days. This letter is only provided if there is no accompanying paperwork with the watch.
You do not need to make an appointment for this service.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not provide watch authentications between 12 pm and 2 pm.
