How To Calculate the Value of a Marine Chronometer, Clock, Vintage Watch or Timepiece?

There are several things that contribute to the value of a used brand name or a luxury watch. Such as:

1. Current condition and age

2. Vintage value

3. Features and complications

4. Reputation of the brand

Be sure to look for a buyer that considers each of these factors in order to get the most for your watch or timepiece.


Feel free to contact me if you, or someone you know, has a marine chronometer (chronometre), deck watch or military timepiece(s), or unusual watch for sale or trade. Even if I am not interested, I will be glad to recommend other collectors that may be.  I’m also glad to recommend resources to research your timepiece.

You can also trade your timepiece for a new purchase!
