Certified Authentic watches.

Carefree purchasing thanks to Certified.

Maximum Transparency Every Step of the Way

As part of the Certified by Chrono24 program, the authenticity of each watch is checked and certified by a verified watchmaker, who then issues a certificate of authenticity that details the certification of your watch.

  1. What Authenticity Means To Us

    In order to certify a watch, we must first define what we mean by "authenticity." We break down the term unambiguously, so that you're fully informed before you buy. You can learn more by reading our authenticity info brochure.

  2. Professional Authentication

    All watches certified by Chrono24 undergo a comprehensive inspection based on pre-defined criteria. This is the only way we can guarantee the authenticity of the watch. You can learn more by reading our authenticity info brochure.

  3. Verified Watchmakers

    Every watchmaker who certifies watches for Chrono24 is pre-screened by us before we begin working with them. This ensures that they have all the necessary qualifications and technical equipment. Learn more.
