In the past few years the value of wristwatches by brands such as Rolex or Patek Philippe have increased dramatically due in part to currency, the increased cost of raw materials and indeed skilled labour. Fine jewellery has also followed suit with both precious metals and diamonds increasing in cost disproportionately to other retail products.
All valuations are undertaken on the premises and are usually turned around within 10-14 working days. This service is provided at Wilmslow, Guildford and in Leeds for Rolex and Tudor watches only.
Our team therefore suggest that if your valuables have not been re-valued in the last 2-3 years they should be reappraised and Prestons offer this service with skill sets provided by diamond graders, gemologists and watch specialists.
