You own a modern watch or a collector watch, that you wish to sell. These watches sometimes passed on from a generation to another, sometimes offered or acquired, deserve a rigorous study from a real expert. These watches might have a sentimental value for their owners, this is why it is difficult to estimate their value in total neutrality. Only watchmaker experts can make an objective estimate of your modern or ancient watch. This expertise is based on the brand, the model, the material, the artistic and historical value of each watch which must be carefully examined.
