Top tips to protect your watches
- Keep all original paperwork and boxes as these can impact the value.
- Keep up-to-date with market trends and recent sales as there is a lot of market volatility, meaning values quickly become outdated.
- Get all watches regularly maintained and serviced to avoid maintenance issues.
- Obtain valuations from reputable appraisers / watch specialists.
- Keep watches that are not worn in a safe or secure watch winder safe.

Jewellery insurance FAQs
Yes, depending on your home insurance policy the sub-limits for jewellery within the contents section are often very low. Therefore we advise that you specify your piece(s) at the market/replacement value or take out a separate jewellery insurance policy.
On a Private Clients/high net worth jewellery insurance policy, there are specialist policy sections that cover valuables, jewellery and watches. These will offer more flexible cover, have less limitations and ensure coverage outside the home.
Simply disclose it to your insurance broker who can provide advice around suitable options.
Specialists will review the values, physical security and the flexibility of cover you need to ensure you receive exactly the right cover.
Often insurers require a piece of jewellery to be specified on the schedule when they exceed the policy single article limit. These vary from insurer to insurer but are usually above £10,000.
Those pieces valued under the single article limit can be insured as a collection and would still need to be considered in the total covered sum. It’s important to retain cover at up-to-date market values as the markets can be fairly volatile for valuable jewellery.
