"Most watches are valued
according to their brand,
while some are
valued as jewelry"
 

 
 
 

The watch market can be classified into many segments including; new, secondhand, brand/model, type/level of complication of movement, craftsmanship, use of precious metals, diamonds, gemstones, and popularity.

 
 
 

New watches are usually sold by dealers authorized by the manufacturer and come with a warranty from the manufacturer. However, there is a well-developed “grey market” of non-authorized re-sellers for some brands where the manufacturer may not honor the warranty or refuse to offer service because the watch was not bought from an authorized dealer.

 
 
 

All new watches are priced in respect to the manufacturer’s recommended selling price (MRSP). Most watches can be bought at varying discounts of MRSP. In some very rare cases, specific models of specific brands can sell for over MRSP due to pent up demand from buyers and restricted supply from manufacturers.

 
 
 

Fakes can also be an issue with where new technologies are making it easier to replicate the look and feel of the authentic subject. Watches need to be opened to determine their authenticity.

 
 
 

Secondhand watches fall into categories such as; recent new watches, vintage watches, watches of horological value and pocketwatches.
