Looking for a Watch Insurance Quote?

At Assetsure we realise that often a wristwatch is a person’s most valuable personal possession and that also obtaining insurance is sometimes not that easy. We are a bit different from other insurers in that we are happy to provide cover for watches as single items and we don’t require you to insure the rest of your home and contents with us.

We have developed a policy underwritten at Lloyd’s of London to provide insurance for single watches or collections. We cover all the major popular brands including: Rolex, Breitling, Omega, Patek Philippe &Tag Heuer but of course will be happy to quote for insurance on any type of watch including pocket watches & chronometers.

One of the advantages of insuring your watch with us is that you can protect your valuable home insurance no claims bonus, our policy is completely separate and we replace specified items without deduction of excess.

Often we find that many modern policy wordings have limits on “All Risks” and someone with a high value watch simply cannot obtain the cover they require without taking out a specialist policy.

We are based in the UK and our policies are designed for persons that are normally resident in the United Kingdom, we provide worldwide all risks cover with no restrictions on how many trips abroad a year you make ( maximum duration per trip 60 days ).
