Here at EWC we have often been asked by our customers to offer watch and jewellery valuations.
On the back of this request we have looked to find a high quality valuation company that like us offers a personal 1:1 service.
I am pleased to now introduce you to Clare Blatherwick, FGA DGA who will be our valuation partner and will be delighted to offer her companies valuation service to you.
I asked Clare to put a few words together to introduce herself to our EWC community which I share with you below.
…….The watch market is not only highly charged and fast moving but also complex, with
demand outstripping supply for certain timepieces, particularly Rolex sports watches and
Patek Philippe Nautilus models. This means in some instances, watches are selling for more
in the secondary market than from retailers who are able to access such desirable stock. In a
market of this nature, its more important than ever to ensure you insure and if you already
do, make sure your valuation is up to date.
Edinburgh Watch Company and I both pride ourselves on the quality of our products and our customer
service. The bespoke nature of our respective businesses means that we can offer our
clients time, expertise and complete integrity to allow them to make informed choices in
purchasing a watch, a piece of jewellery or protecting their pieces against the worst
As a member of the National Association of Jewellers (NAJ), a Fellow of the Gemmological
Association (FGA) and a Diamond member of The Gemmological Association (DGA), with
over 20 years of experience in the luxury jewellery world including 10 years as Head of
Jewellery for an international auctioneer, I am ideally placed to offer sound advice on
insurance matters. I will visit you at your home, office or bank, prepare a professional
document with photographs of your piece(s) which you, or indeed I, can pass directly to
your insurer, leaving no room for uncertainty. Not being parted from your watch for a
second + no hassle = piece of mind
