Where Is My Watch’s Reference Number?

Determining the reference number of your watch is essential for accurate identification and valuation. Here are the three common locations where you can find your watch’s reference number:

On the back of the case

Look for the engraved reference number on the case back of your watch. It is often located close to the manufacturer’s logo or hallmark. Our team of experts can help you locate and interpret this important detail.

Underneath the lugs

In some cases, the reference number may be hidden underneath the lugs of your watch. You may need to remove the strap or bracelet to access it. If you’re unsure about finding the reference number, our knowledgeable staff can guide you through the process.

On the face or dial

Certain watches display the reference number on the face or dial. It may be printed or engraved near the center, along the outer edge, or even within subdials. Our experts are well-versed in the various dial configurations and can assist you in identifying the reference number accurately.

At Authentic Watch Co, our experienced team of experts specializes in vintage watch valuation. We carefully assess these factors and draw upon our extensive knowledge of the market to provide you with a fair and accurate valuation for your timepiece.

What documents or information do I need to sell my vintage watch?

To ensure a smooth selling process, it is helpful to have certain documents and information readily available. These may include the original box and papers, any service records or certificates, and details about the watch’s history and provenance. However, if you don’t have all these items, don’t worry. Our experts will work closely with you to gather the necessary information and provide guidance throughout the selling process.
