Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do you take payment over the internet?

  2. What does Unworn Mean?
    If a watch states that is unworn it means that the watch has been recently purchased new, then sold to ourselves without being worn. The watch will have all the protective stickers
    and seals still on the watch. The watch will also have the manufacturers guarantee.

  3. What is a VPB Authenticity Certificate?
    If a watch is for sale and it states it has box and a VPB Authenticity Certificate then it simply means that VPB provide a guarantee that the watch has been checked for authenticity
    and is a genuine timepiece in its movement, case and bracelet (unless stated otherwise). This is also provided when the watch has been sold to us without original watch papers as they have been misplaced.
