What does 10/10 mean?
This is a mark out of 10 that we give all our watches. If a watch is 10/10 it means that it is in excellent condition and includes its original box and papers. Older watches can be 10/10 if we consider them to be in good condition for their age. If a watch is just below this standard or if it does not have official papers as they have been misplaced then we classify it as 9/10. We speak to clients regularly to ensure that our marks are fair and a true representation of the watch. When a watch is new it will state unworn in the condition box.
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.
