    The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The online condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance purposes only. The images of the lot also form part of the online condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Any reference to condition in the online condition report does not amount to a full description of condition. The online condition report may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the online condition report of the lot or shown in the online images of the lot (for example, the online condition report may not specify mechanical replacements or imperfections to the movement, case, dial, pendulum, separate base(s) or dome). Watches in water-resistant cases have been opened to examine movements but no warranties are made that the watches are currently water-resistant. The online condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the online condition report is a statement of subjective, qualified opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's (for example, information regarding colour, clarity and weight of gemstones are statements of opinion only and not statements of fact by Sotheby's). Please also note that we do not guarantee the authenticity of any individual component parts, such as wheels, hands, crowns, crystals, screws, bracelets and wrist bands, since subsequent repairs and restoration work may have resulted in the replacement of original parts. In addition, certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot (for example, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades). For these reasons, the online condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot. Prospective buyers should also refer to the Buying at Auction guide which includes important notices concerning the type of property in this sale. In particular, please note it is the purchaser's responsibility to comply with any applicable import and export matters, particularly in relation to lots incorporating materials from endangered species. Please be advised that wristbands made of materials derived from endangered or otherwise protected species (i.e. alligator and crocodile) are not sold with the watches and are for display purposes only. We reserve the right to remove these bands prior to shipping. NOTWITHSTANDING THIS ONLINE CONDITION REPORT OR ANY DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD "AS IS" IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS (ONLINE ONLY).

Shipping

To assist you in understanding the potential cost of shipping to your address, we have provided a simple shipping cost calculator, which can be accessed by clicking on the link: AUCTION SHIPPING CALCULATOR on the top of the main sale page and on the right side of the lot pages. To use the calculator you will need three pieces of information: the Lot Number; the country to which the item will be shipped; and your anticipated bid (the hammer price).

Please note that, should you wish to arrange your own shipping or to arrange collection of your purchases yourself, all lots are located in our Geneva premises. Please note that property can only be released once payment has been received and cleared. If you are using your own shipper to collect property from Sotheby's, please provide a letter of authorisation, a copy of your paid invoice and photographic ID or a completed release of liability form (provided by Sotheby's).

For the shipping cost calculator, Sotheby's has partnered with a secure shipper, to ensure that your purchases are shipped to you safely, securely and insured, via the global Federal Express network or via Swiss post for Swiss shipments. We have worked with these companies for a number of years to provide the shipping service for our traditional auctions, and they deliver an excellent level of service at a very reasonable price. The final hammer price influences the exact cost of shipping. All purchases from this sale are shipped using a priority service; packing charges (including any applicable VAT, Sales Tax and possible artist resale rights levy) are charged at a flat rate of CHF 30. Consequently you may use the calculator to establish in advance of bidding the likely range of shipping prices that you would incur if you are the successful bidder for a particular lot - for example you may wish to input your maximum bid in order to understand the maximum shipping price for the item, but you may also wish to input the bid at which you hope to secure the lot.

We are unable to offer shipping via this method to every destination. If your destination country is not listed in the drop-down menu on our shipping calculator, please contact Sotheby's (contact information is on the shipping calculator page) and provide details of the lot number, the address to which you wish to ship together with your maximum bid. In most cases, we will be able to offer a shipping solution and we will provide you with a pre-sale quote based on the actual shipment value; any difference in the final sale price will affect the final shipping price that will be charged. As we will need to liaise with one or more shipping vendors, depending on the destination, requests for such pre-sale quotes need to be submitted no later than 72 hours prior to the scheduled sale-end. Finally, some items cannot be shipped to certain destinations at all (for example items of Iranian origin to the GCC States) and, whilst the shipping calculator may provide a price for the shipment, the notes field will populate with an explanation of the restriction that applies. The inability to ship to a destination so excluded will not justify the cancellation of a sale, and you should refer to the full terms and conditions for buyers (Conditions of Business, Online Only).

Further information regarding collection of purchases from Sotheby's, and the storage charges that will accrue for any purchased items not cleared within 30 days of sale closure, can be found on your invoice or in the Conditions of Business, Online Only Sales.
