- Linde Werdelin – LW Vintage service
Linde Werdelin’s LW Vintage service allows Sellers to entrust the entire mediation management of a Watch sale - from the moment it lists the Watch for sale until the distribution of the relevant proceeds of sale if the Watch is sold. This includes Watch storage on Linde Werdelin’s premises during the period defined (6 months). When the Seller uses LW Vintage, he/she undertakes to exclusively sell the Watch via Linde Werdelin. This means that once Linde Werdelin accepts to list and manage the sale of the Watch submitted to Linde Werdelin by the Seller on his/her behalf, the Seller will not be permitted to offer the Watch for sale by any other means (e.g. via an auction site or another website platform). After the LW Vintage has ended, if the Watch has not sold, this exclusivity arrangement will also end.
