Each watch is opened and examined by our watchmakers and our resident watch expert. The movement is checked to ensure its authenticity with respect to the model of the watch and the period in which it was made.
Our watchmakers test the resistance of the watch to water pressure. A water resistance certificate is then issued.
The case and bracelet are cleaned then polished, taking care not to diminish the quality of the patina present on certain vintage watches. The movements are refurbished and each component lubricated.
Any part that proves defective due to a manufacturing fault or due to faulty workmanship will be repaired and replaced free of charge at the Collector Square watch workshop.
