Loans on your Patek Philippe watch
To ensure you get the best price possible, we have a strict set of guidelines which we assess before issuing any loans on Patek Philippe watches. This includes looking at each of the 4 key areas.
Having been around for over 100 years, Patek Philippe has a large number of different ranges and models of watches, some more valuable than others. For example, the Nautilus remains a highly prestigious model of the watch and was first introduced back in 1976 as a classic sports watch. Our expert appraisers would appreciate that such a watch would hold far greater value than more common models.
It is the simple nature of older watches that they are often more highly sought after than newer Patek Philippe models. This makes them more valuable, as long as they have been well maintained throughout the years.
Condition is everything when you decide to borrow against Patek Philippe watches. Even a watch that has only recently been bought could have quickly lost much of its value if it has been poorly looked after. On the other hand, a vintage Patek Philippe Grand watch, such as a Grand Complication, that is in perfect condition both inside and out, is considerably more valuable if .
Whenever we issue loans, we always much prefer to loan against ones that have a higher amount of provenance. Such as proof of purchase, its service history and any previous owners it may have had. These add to its authenticity and our ability to offer a higher loan.
