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 a listing with an insufficient number of images, we suggest you contact the seller to ask for additional images.
