After 2 business days of receiving submission MJ will reply with an offer range based on market values, business fit, general impression based on pictures, or will decline the opportunity.

MJ will receive the watch, will do a visual inspection on condition, authenticity, value and will prepare a final offer to seller within 3 business days from receiving the watch.
If seller accepts, MJ will send payment to seller.
During the selling process:
- If seller changes the mind, the watch will be sent back with no charges to seller
- The insurance on the watch will correspond to the highest value of the proposed offer range
