AN INFALSIFIABLE CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY

The Watch Certificate™ standardizes the certification of a watch and certifies its condition and authenticity. To go into detail, it is a digital passport which allows, after expertise, to guarantee that a model is original and compliant. This “gray card” which can be consulted online at any time includes all the characteristics of the watch. Any intervention (maintenance service) approved by a watchmaker certified by Watch Certificate can be added in order to keep the timepiece information up to date. Everything is recorded digitally using the blockchain to secure the history of your watch.

The Watch Certificate allows you to benefit from constantly evolving high added value services: specific and unique insurance solutions against breakage and theft at home or theft while worn.

In practice, the Watch Certificate comes in the form of a 28-gram brushed steel card, the size of a credit card and respecting the codes of luxury. Equipped with a QR code, it gives instant access to the entire history of your timepiece.

OPERATION AND EXPERTISE

The Watch Certificate™ is carried out by watchmaking professionals: a GWC watchmaker who physically inspects the watch and an independent expert, assisted by artificial intelligence.

To produce this certificate, a GWC vintage expert and an approved GWC watchmaker will physically check the watch at 53 checkpoints and take high-definition photographs using the “Inspection Box”, a machine that allows the shooting to be standardized. Among these control points we find among others: the serial number, the movement, the bracelet... The conformity of the parts is also scrupulously studied. Original or so-called “service” parts, everything is appraised. The historical or technical context can also be mentioned in order to place the timepiece in its environment.

Then, an independent expert from the Watch Certificate company receives the photos and the report, which will allow him to carry out the expertise. He will thus be able to carry out a careful analysis of the control points provided, supplementing the information if necessary to finally validate the complete expertise of the watch. Watch Certificate experts are independent and carry out their activity mainly for auction houses and/or commercial sites of national and international scale. They participate in the writing of specialized works on watchmaking and may be required to collaborate with the courts in the context of legal expertise.

For any watch collector, the Watch Certificate™ offered by GWC offers a triple guarantee valid over time: that of specialists in GWC collector's watches, that of a GWC watchmaker approved by the biggest brands and that of an expert independent watchmaker.
