Condition and detailed information

At Important Watches, we describe the watches condition using a ten-point scale.

The graded components include Movement, Dial, Case, and Bracelet. One part of the scale is Kaplans' watch experts’ overall opinion of each watch.

Below the item description you will find detailed information about many watches. Learn more about aspects such as condition or provenance.

You can now see films of selected lots from Important Watches.

As a complement to the images, we offer films of selected watches. The moving pictures give you the opportunity to see more details as well as an overview of the design and condition of the watches.
