What We Inspect
Watch brands make so many models that it is difficult to keep track of what was original versus what was altered. Watch components may be changed with parts to make the watch look like a more expensive version - this could include [the bezel, dial or bracelet] - while others may be altered for an improved look such as diamond additions. Our professional watchmakers, including our affiliated service centers, will communicate any deviations from the watch's original condition. This will include movement changes, altered bezels and dials, etc.
All watches when sold new look the same, but over time each watch will age differently as a result of wear. This will impact value and you should be aware of the condition of the watch you are buying as no two pre-owned watches are of the same quality. Our WatchFacts Score will assist you in your evaluation process as it objectively evaluates a watch based on age, external condition, functionality and authenticity.
Usually there is nothing to worry about, but a change of part can be used to hide a watch's past identity or could even signal inauthentic parts. Further, a part change can disrupt the watch's performance so it doesn't meet manufacturer's performance specifications or standards. During our inspection of any watch, we will do our best to notate any components that may be inauthentic or aftermarket. If there are any additions to the watch that are different from the original watch, such as a different strap, bracelet, bezel or dial, they are documented in the watchmaker's inspection report.
