Our quality assurance process commences before we receive a candidate for purchase; each of our luxury watch professionals works to ascertain the history, condition, and accessories associated with the watch to be evaluated.
Upon arrival at watchuwant.com's headquarters in Hollywood, Florida, each watch package is documented to exhaustion via real-time video recordings and still photography of the unboxing process. Condition, accessories, paperwork, components, and manufactuer packaging associated with an incoming timepiece are documented in multiple media as they are removed from the shipping box. watchuwant.com Operations Department personnel immediately record the serial numbers of the watch, cross reference each serial number with factory documents included with the watch to ensure each corresponds, and compare the serial number to a vast electronic database of known counterfeit serial numbers.
Following extensive documentation and a preliminary intake inspection of condition, the watch will be forwarded to the watchuwant.com Watchmaking Department for in-depth evaluation of authenticity, aesthetic condition, and functional integrity.
