It is our pleasure to confirm the following benefits of the two-year Bucherer Certified Pre-Owned warranty:

  • Full assessment confirming authenticity
  • Full case and bracelet ultrasonic clean
  • Diagnostic test of all watch functions including date, rapid date change, chronograph operation and self-winding
  • Authentication of movement, repairs, original components and replacements
  • Time regulation and full test of power reserve
  • Water resistance test on glass, crown and back seals


With the sale of Certified Pre-Owned (“CPO”) watches, Bucherer guarantees the flawless functioning of the watch as a separate warranty for the duration of two years. The Customer will be given a warranty card to this effect when receiving the watch.


This warranty does not cover signs of age on the CPO watch that are disclosed at the time of purchase, or defects or damage resulting from the following:

  • inappropriate or improper use of the product (striking, impact or destruction, etc.), unauthorised tampering, omitted servicing where recommended by the manufacturer (especially water resistance checks), faulty or negligent treatment, or the use of components other than those recommended by Bucherer;
  • loss, theft or fire;
  • intentional damage, incorrect operation, negligence or accident, and/or improper repair or modification to the watch by the customer or third parties.


If the water resistance of a watch can no longer be guaranteed at the time of the sale, the customer will be explicitly notified to this effect. If this is the case, water resistance will be excluded from the warranty. In general, water resistance is not a permanent characteristic for which Bucherer can issue a warranty, because the function of the built-in sealing elements may deteriorate over time and with daily use. Bucherer strongly recommends that customers have water resistance checks carried out in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations. 


The customer shall allow Bucherer sufficient time to carry out repairs to defects covered by the warranty. Bucherer may decide the type and manner of the rectification of defects covered by the warranty, but in all cases Bucherer has the right to rectify damage and defects free of charge.

Developed during the quartz crisis which strongly hit the Swiss watch industry in the late 1960s and beginning of the 1970s, the Royal Oak revolutionized the industry and created a new category: 'stainless steel sports watches'. The novelty, designed by Gérald Genta, coincided with the tendency for less ostentatious watches as the focus had shifted towards understatement and quality. The Royal Oak was an all-purpose watch that was the perfect fit for different occasions, ranging from daily use to formal occasions.  

Inspired, perhaps erroneously, by the look of a diving-suit helmet, the case along with the octagonal bezel and integrated bracelet, create an aesthetically appealing design that makes this watch such an emblematic model. Just this year Audemars Piguet announced to discontinue the present reference and therefore this lot has instantly gained even more attractiveness for collectors.
