The Jones & Horan plain English grading system follows this general order from top to bottom:   Pristine (without defect, untouched) | Mint | Near Mint | Excellent | Fine (the average grade for most used, running watches) | Good | Fair | Poor 

With respect to wear, we also use the following terms in order:  No wear | Hardly any wear | Very little wear | Little wear | Very light wear | Light wear | Medium wear | Ample wear | Substantial wear | Worn out

These general terms are used in combination with precise descriptions of defects for further elaboration where needed:  The term, “Good,” is also used alone to indicate that the watch or its function is doing what it should be doing, as in “good running order, good repeat function and tone, good chronograph and date functions,” etc. These functions are not rated. Good running order (GRO) only means that the balance and escapement are performing in healthy fashion and without apparent defect, but does not guarantee timekeeping or warrantee future performance; unless otherwise noted, our timepieces are not serviced by us, and we do not know when they were last serviced from our sources. We do our best to indicate any potential problems or needs for repair.

Thank you and enjoy our Store!
