"I was educated at Sotheby's and spent some time working as a researcher for Christie's, so I know what the world's leading auction houses are looking for and can determine the fair market value of your item, based on current demand. Mearto is unique because - after we appraise your item - we can also help you sell it through one of our auction house partners."
Our product is built around the needs of our users.
Therefore we would love to hear from you
"Mearto has been a great find for me as I have lots of things come through my hands with my Reclaim Company.
They have been very helpful. I think the service has been exceptional and response time impressive and will recommend them to any one.
Thank you Mearto"
"Wow I was not expecting to get that much in depth information! I never dreamed it would actually have any history behind it.
Thank you so much!"
"I am a fundraiser and routinely purchase items which are then auctioned to raise money. I have a very good eye, but occasionally need help monetizing value. I knew I had a very nice copy in original frame, but I didn't know how much it was worth. Because I do this to make money, I couldn't afford typical appraisal fees and the "free" appraisal service was useless. My Mearto appraiser did a complete, authoritative valuation so it was well worth the price.
I will be back!"

Antique watches and clocks are one of the most popular items for antique enthusiasts.
This is not a surprise as the act of measuring time has been around for as long as history itself. In fact, it is an activity that can be traced back to antiquity – even before the clocks or watches were invented.
Ever since watches and clocks were invented though, there have been many styles that evolved over the years. The first step to determining the value of antique clocks and watches is to know the type of timepiece that you have.
Sure you can - Our specialists get many watches and clocks and it is very common to appraise online. Just make sure that you provide good description and some good quality, infocus images. But don't worry - if you are missing some important information or an image, our specialists will ask you to provide the necessary information if possible.
If you are looking for an online appraisal, then you have come to the right place. Use the form below and upload your wath and our watch specialist will get back to you within a few hours.
If you are looking for an appraiser near you, then take a look in our appraiser directory. It is the largest on the web and you can search for your city.
We have broken down this section to discuss in more detail the different antique items that you might have under this category, such as antique clocks, pocket watches, and wrist watches.
These items might be handed down from generation to generation.
Their value will also vary based not just on the age and rarity, but also in its use – whether it is a functional timepiece or has an aesthetic value to it as well. When valuing your antique timepieces, make sure you work with licensed and fully qualified appraisers to get an objective assessment of your antique items.
