How Watches Are Appraised: Anatomy of a Watch and What Appraisers Will Look At
When you have a financial emergency or just need cash fast, the watch on your wrist could be used to obtain a pawn loan. Prior to getting your cash loan, there are several things an appraiser will look at to determine the value of your watch, including:
- Brand Name
- Overall Condition
- Materials the Watch Is Made From
- Features and Options on the Watch
- The Popularity or Demand for the Watch
In addition, if your watch has a serial number and original papers, you will want to bring these along when you have your watch appraised. This will help the appraiser and provides proof that the watch is not a knock-off or a cheap imitation.
