FAQ
What guarantees do I have in case I do not get paid in time?

If the delay is due to Ineichen Auctioneers, we take full responsibility to repay you with premium calculated individually based on the contract of sale. Otherwise, we are not responsible for delays due to banking system and other intermediaries.

How can I receive the payment?

The payment equal to hammer price will be transferred to your bank account within 3 workdays.

How and when will I get a quote?

An initial quote is usually created within 48 hours depending on the availability of experts. It will be delivered to you via e-mail with a supporting notice in a phone call if required.

What watches can I sell? Brands, models, and conditions?

There is no limitation for the brand, condition, presence of documents of origin, or packaging for the watches we accept. The case for each watch is considered individually. The true value and worthiness of sale for each watch will be known right after the initial estimation!

Is the service completely free? Any commission?

It depends on the desirability of the watch defined by its rarity, condition, and fitness to the catalogue. If the watch is highly desired – there is no pre-sale commission. Otherwise, it is calculated individually.
No commission on the hammer price or any additional after-sale costs is taken from the seller.

Can I reserve a starting price for my watch?

Yes. However, if the price you want to reserve exceeds the estimation we provide, the commission will be charged as a back up in case the buyer for such price is not found.

Are there any risks when selling my watch at your auction?

Even if the buyer bails, we buy the watch from you. But the chance of such situation to occur is extremely low thanks to the scrutiny of out security check process for bidders.

How can you guarantee the profit from my watch sale?

Based on the evaluation, the estimates for your watch will be locked in the auction. As a rule, the increase in the final sale price can be anticipated through bidding. The starting price may rise in the pre biddings as well. Simply put, the price of your watch will never go below the initial value estimated.

Will my watch be sold at the next upcoming auction?

We cannot guarantee the sale of your watch at the nearest auction since the preparation of catalogue and announcement of lots happens from 2 to 1 month before the auction. Your watch will be included in the auction depending on its relevance to other pieces included as well as the timing before the auction that your request has been submitted. Your personal manager will provide with a detailed timeline for your watch sale when you submit a form.
