Expertise for Banks & Insurances - Legal issues

Starting from a collection cataloguing to a catalogue "raisonné". 
Click here and check 
Terms and Conditions before you pay and by paying you acknowledge these Terms and Conditions.  

 

The range of this specific service to collectors goes from the simple collection cataloguing up to detailed and reasoned cataloguing with historical and technical illustrations.

Researches can be from simple descriptions (one or two pages) up to complete studies and advanced searches (up to twenty pages or more).

Such works can include the following information or advices:

            - Examination, inspection                                        - Advanced technical examination

            - Description                                                          - Advanced research

            - Provenances and Market tracking                           - Evaluation

            - History in prices                                                   - Important purchases assistance 

            - How to create or to up-grade your collection           - How to store your collection for ideal preservation

            - How to insure your watches

The cost for these services will depend on the size of your collection and how far you want to go in details and information.

However here is an example for a collection of 100 watches with two-third of wrist-watches, mostly Patek and Rolex:

            - Examination and pictures for 100 pieces                 - Description for 100 pieces with provenance and market tracking

            - Insurance evaluation for each piece                        - Simple cataloguing on a DVD

            - *Extra for advanced examination for 20 pieces        - *Extra for advanced research for 20 pieces

The cost would be € 23’000 + 7.7% VAT (€ 15’000 without the *extras examinations and researches), not included travel and accommodation expenses, not included the watch-maker interventions, not included Patek Philippe extracts for each item.

The time it would take should be around twenty working days after receiving a basic list with references, serial numbers, and one picture at least for each watch.

How does it work?

            Step 1 - Request for a quotation explaining your needs and giving the necessary details.

            Step 2 - You receive an answer and a phone meeting proposal within 2 working days.
