Timepiece Condition

About Timepiece Condition

We encourage our sellers to describe their watches using our “Timepiece Condition” classification to the best of their belief and knowledge in order for us to provide an appropriate estimate of the watch’s state.  We developed this ranking simply as a guide, as the estimation of the condition of a watch is always subjective. It is possible that the buyer and seller may have different opinions on the condition of a specific watch; however, when the timepiece is inspected at Club Jibarito, we will strive to offer you the greatest value for your timepiece taking into consideration your view as well.
