Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much does an Audemars Piguet watch appraisal at Sotheby's cost?
    Sotheby's does not perform appraisals but we do provide auction estimates for items we believe we can sell at auction. Our auction estimate valuations are complimentary and do not cost you anything. We review all submissions and provide valuations for watches we believe we can sell at auction. We will inform you if your watch is not a good fit for a Sotheby's auction, and we will do our best to provide you with a recommendation of another venue to sell your watch.
  • When is the best time to sell my Audemars Piguet watch?
    Sotheby's watch sales happen throughout the year online and in multiple selling locations, including Hong Kong, London, Geneva and New York. Based on our specialists' understanding of the market and the current appetite of watch buyers, we are able to recommend the location and time of year that will be best for the sale of your timepiece.
  • Must I have the original documents or receipts that came with my Audemars Piguet timepiece?
    Audemars Piguet watches can have many different types of paperwork to help with authentication: a Certificate of Origin and Guarantee, Warranty Card, Register Certificate booklet, service receipts, or original packaging. Documentation can help the sale of your watch, but if you do not have any, our specialists can still use clear photographs to determine a preliminary estimate. Once you submit your AP information online, you will be able to track the estimate process and one of our specialists can get in touch with you directly if there are any questions about your timepiece.
  • Why is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak model so valuable?
    The Royal Oak was the first luxury sports watch. Created in 1972 by designer Gérald Genta, its bezel was inspired by the screw heads of a deep-sea diving helmet. Its use of steel and its striking design caused a stir in the Swiss watchmaking industry. There are now several versions of the Royal Oak, and it has become a favorite among athletes and fashion insiders.
  • Which athletes have created their own limited edition Audemars Piguet watches?
    Leo Messi, Lebron James, Michael Schumacher, Rubens Barrichello, Team Alinghi, and Nick Faldo all have Limited Edition Audemars Piguet watches.
