Genuine factory parts and construction

We check to make sure all parts are from the factory with the reference number correctly corresponding to the entire watch configuration, including: case material, dial, bracelet or strap, movement, and any other part of the watch that we deem applicable

How it works

Period correctness and provenance

All parts of the watch including: case, dial, hands, movement, bracelet, and clasp - unless otherwise noted in the listing - are from the correct time period listed and are original, genuine parts. Service or replacement parts from the original manufacture (service dials, hands, bezel inserts, cases, movements, etc) may be included if noted as part of the condition description at point of purchase

All aspects consistent with the watch’s listing

We make sure the watch exactly matches the purchase description. This includes: reference, condition, accessories, and manufacture year.
