Contract

If you decide to sell watches through Antiquorum, a contract will be drawn up which describes the lot(s), establishes reserve(s), and sets forth terms and fees for the services we provide. The reserve is the minimum price the seller will realize (less seller’s commission and fees). The reserve is determined by mutual agreement between the seller and Antiquorum.

Seller's Fees

  • Seller’s commissions are charged on sold lots only. 15% on the first US $ 10,000 and 10% thereafter on hammer price per lot sold.
  • Antiquorum also charges an insurance premium of 1% on the final hammer price for each lot sold or on the basis of the reserve for unsold lots.
  • If the seller wishes to use his/her own insurance coverage, a disclaimer letter must be provided to Antiquorum.
  • The seller will also be charged a fee for photography. Please contact the corresponding office for further details.
