Every watch is different in terms of value but here are a few of the criteria we use to evaluate the loan value in our appraisal:
Model and Brand – Not all watches were created equal. The model and brand will greatly affect the appraisal.
Brands We Accept: Rolex, Patek Philippe, Girard-Perregaux, Uylsse Nardin, Blancpain, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Breguet, Vacheron Constantin, A. Lange & Sohne, Audemars Piguet, Breitling
Documentation – The more information available for your appraisal the better. Original boxes, original watch cushions, owner manuals and receipts will all increase the value of your piece.
Age – Modern watches are usually assigned a higher value. Vintage watches could be highly appraised as well, but their value is determined by both scarcity and conditions.
Scarcity – A timepiece produced in limited quantities will raise the value. The fewer similar pieces still functioning would also affect the loan value.
Condition – This one seems the most obvious; the condition of the timepiece will affect the value. Nicks, scratches, and the amount of replaced parts will lessen the value.
Our professional will be able to accurately provide an assessment to you that you can trust. Eliasson Capital is thorough, cross-checking our evaluations with those of auction houses, manufacturer databases, and third-party data collectors.
