Since Horologivm was founded, we have been against the fake watches. Our means are modest: We do not only get in service than the original watches. Unfortunately, this FAKE watches market will not suffer as long as there are customers who are happy with the copies, believing that no one realizes the real value of the watch they wear.
Another category of customers are those who think they are doing a great deal by buying watches from people in financial difficulty (or similar stories). They do not want to wear FAKE watches, they are just fooling that what they buy is original.
To avoid unpleasant surprises, Horologivm offers authentication service for the originality of watches. As far as we have access to information, we can also check the legal status of the original watches. Nothing is more embarrassing than to find out over the years that the 2nd hand watch is actually a watch from a break or thievery.
The authentication service of the watch is done on the spot and lasts between 15 and 30 minutes. Authentication is made by highly experienced watchmakers, with considerable baggage of knowledge.
"HOW DO I KNOW IF MY WATCH IT'S AUTHENTIC OR FAKE?"
Assuming you are not a knowledgeable person in the field of horology, the correct answer is: you can not know whether it is authentic or not. That's why we’re here, to give you the assurance that what you have is a real deal.
We can do the assessment in two ways:
- The online version (or the “complicated way"): send us high resolution pictures of the watch and the mechanism and we will figure out the rest ourselves.
- The in-person version (or the “easy way"): Bring your watch over to us.
