Watch Condition

Our sellers are required to describe their watches to the best of their ability. The following classifications are meant to help you better assess a watch's condition.

Please note that these classifications only serve as a rough estimate and that the assessment of a watch's condition is always subjective. Buyers and sellers may view a watch's condition differently.

We recommend closely examining the images uploaded by the seller, especially if it's a pre-owned watch. This helps to avoid potential disappointment resulting from unexpected defects.

If you're interested in an offer with an insufficient number of images, we suggest you contact the seller to ask for additional images.
