Watch Inspection Report

Sample Inspection Report

In addition to adding our Watch Grading Scale we will be including our Inspection Report on all pre-owned TAG Heuer listings added after Jan 1, 2016.  The addition of this report will give our customers a higher level of confidence in what they are buying.  There will be a photo of this report included in the sales listing.  It will also be included with the watch when shipped so customers can keep it for their records.  If you see a watch listed on the site without a photo of this report in the listing it indicates that the watch was listed on the web site prior to Jan 1, 2016.

To the right is a sample of the Inspection Report.  It describes the initial condition, work performed and the final condition of the watch after all work was performed.

 

 

Below is an explanation of the information in each section of the Inspection Report.  Items with notes in (Bold Italics) are an explanation of the report contents.  Items without notes are self-explanatory.

*A note about our Purchase Price.

This information is available to our customers for multiple reasons.   We are proud of our business philosophy and have worked hard to provide great customer satisfaction.  We want to be the “go to” online retailer for pre-owned TAG Heuer watches and we will go the extra mile to gain the trust and confidence of our customers.  We offer the best price we can while still leaving the possibility to realize a reasonable profit after work has been performed.  This price is typically more than the offer from Pawn Shops or other local retailers when condition is taken in to consideration.   A higher price can usually be realized by selling on eBay or Craigslist but there are a multitude of reasons why our customers don’t do that.  It can be a risky endeavor if you are not familiar with the in’s and out’s of those selling platforms.  At AJT Watch Company we try to make the selling process as easy as possible.  Please see our Sell Your Watch page for more information.

The purchase price is also very useful information if you’re thinking of trading or selling a similar watch to AJT Watch Company.  You can get an idea of what we will pay by looking at the price and condition of the watch listed.  Our offer may be a little different, depending on the condition of your watch and the current market, but it is a good starting point.
