Buy a watch

Buy your watch with peace of mind with the N°1 authentication company

Entrust the certification of your next watch to the specialists, who have the appropriate tools and the most advanced methodology.

Authenticate your watch before you buy

Original or fake: how to know if a watch is authentic before buying it?

Buying a luxury watch from a professional or a private individual does not guarantee the acquisition of an authentic timepiece.

Some are real on the outside, but equipped with fake movements. Copies can even be given original papers.

Worse still ... what if it's a stolen watch? Don't take the word of people who claim to know their stuff and risk losing your investment.

During a transaction, as soon as there is any doubt, we therefore advise you to have recourse to the expertise of Watch Certificate™:
- either by asking the seller to have it certified by us before the sale
- or by doing it yourself during your withdrawal period: your Watch Certificate™ will thus give you all the arguments to cancel the sale in the event of a problem.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Where can I purchase a Watch Certificate™?

You have the option of ordering your Watch Certificate™ on our Order a Watch Certificate™ page or directly from an authorized partner.

How do I send my watch for certification?

You can hand-deliver your watch to one of our partner watchmakers after making an appointment. If you prefer, we can organize a certification with shipment of your watch. To arrange for a shipment, please contact us via the Contact page in our website.

How long does certification take?

The inspection by a watchmaker takes less than an hour. Depending on the availability of the expert, the watch can be kept by the watchmaker for additional photos. Once the inspection is completed, you can leave with your watch and its accessories. You will be notified of the expert's validation within 48 hours on average.

I already have the original box, papers and invoice. Why make a Watch Certificate™?

Unfortunately, today, a certificate of origin is very easily falsifiable and holds no evolving information, no photos and cannot justify the authenticity of the watch and its components at a moment T. On the other hand Watch Certificate™ is the ideal tool to justify the market value of a watch to its insurance or to reassure a potential buyer in a transaction.

Who can update my Watch Certificate™?

Your Watch Certificate™ is upgradeable and it records the history of your watch. All of our authorized watchmakers can update your certificate, by appointment only. You can also request an update on the market value of your watch remotely (e.g. filing an insurance claim). An independent expert will validate the new market value of your watch within 48 hours, on average.
