Valuing Your IWC Watch
Our highly trained specialists consider many factors when valuing your IWC watch to ensure we provide you with the most accurate and up to date valuation. The most important factors are:
IWC watches can increase in value over time. A marriage of American engineering and Swiss craftsmanship, the Pilot models can attract especially favourable loan estimates if you are considering pawning your IWC watch.
Age and Condition
With the first IWC watch made in 1868, we provide valuations on IWCs that might be over a century old. While age may not detract from a high valuation, we also scrutinise the condition. While some wear and tear is inevitable, significant scratches or restoration marks can affect our valuation.
We can still provide you with a loan estimate if you only have the IWC watch itself. However, the original box and any connected papers or certificate of sale can dramatically increase our valuation.
IWC timepieces are often in high demand, with some models – the Pilot watch – known to set records at auction. Our valuation looks at the individual watch but also takes into account recent IWC sale and auction documentation to provide the most accurate valuation.
We also check your watch against loss and stolen registers as part of our due diligence.

When your IWC watch(s) is with us, we take every step necessary to look after your luxury valuables. Our valuation specialists and inventory managers handle your IWC watch(s) with care to make sure your luxury valuables are returned to you in the same condition we received them in.
