VAT does not apply in the following circumstances:

  • If the lots are shipped to an address outside Switzerland by the company Peter Rapp AG.
  • If the buyer produces an official export certificate from Swiss customs following proper exportation of the lots.
  • Dealers based in Switzerland can deduct the VAT paid to Peter Rapp AG as input tax on their own VAT return

Shipping of Auction Lots

We will ensure that your auction lots are properly packed and seamlessly dispatched. Please note that we are required to issue the necessary shipping/customs documents for deliveries outside of Switzerland.
Your package will be fully insured by Rapp Auctions while in transit. For this comprehensive insurance cover, Rapp Auctions will add a 0.5 % surcharge to the auction bill.
The shipping costs are calculated according to the shipping method (post office, courier company, transport company).

The purchased lots must be paid promptly upon receipt of the invoice, but no later than 7 days after the end of the auction.

Cites

A permit is required to export items which are produced using the skins and furs of certain species of animal and are protected by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). In Switzerland, the Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO) requires CITES export permits to be issued and also provides the necessary means to obtain these permits. As the FSVO is the only organisation with this authority, Rapp Auctions is neither permitted nor able to issue any certificates or export licences. The buyer is solely responsible for identifying and obtaining all relevant import or export licences for the items they have purchased. The buyer is also responsible for paying all associated fees.
Failure to obtain a permit, or a delay in doing so, is no justification for a refund of the purchase price or a delay in full payment for the item(s) in question. The symbol ~ indicating protected or controlled species in the catalogue is intended solely as general guidance for buyers, and Rapp Auctions does not accept any liability for any errors or omissions.

Important Information for our Customers

Starting Prices in the Auction Catalogue

All jewellery, watches and luxury handbags are deliberately given conservative starting prices in the auction catalogue. Bids below the starting price will not be accepted.

Condition Reports

Details regarding the condition of the jewellery, watch and luxury handbags auction lots are usually found in their respective descriptions. However, a lack of details neither signifies that lots are in pristine condition, nor that they have no signs of wear, nor that they are free from defects.

Completeness and Working Order of Watches on Sale

We are unable to guarantee that the watches on sale are complete and in working order. Prospective buyers are advised to have the watches examined by a competent expert. All watches were examined and tested by both an expert in watches and an experienced horologist prior to being included in the auction offerings. If requested we provide condition reports for each wrist and pocket watch presented in this catalogue. The lots presented in this catalogue are sold in whatever condition they are in at the fall of the hammer. Upon the fall of the hammer, all benefits and risks in connection with the lots transfer to the buyer. All prospective buyers have the opportunity to inspect the condition of the lots carefully in person during the viewings held prior to the auction. Descriptions of lots in this catalogue only reflect an opinion and do not constitute a guarantee of particular characteristics. The auction house shall neither be held liable for incorrect attributions or incorrect details regarding the provenance, date, age, origin, condition or authenticity; nor for any other obvious or hidden defects.
