*Conditions of Sale for Fortuna Auction*
These are the conditions of sale for bidding and buying from Fortuna. These conditions and the contents listed are subject to change by posting of notices online before and up to the sale. We will offer properties in lots. A lot may consist of a single item or a group of items as we may determine. By bidding at any of our auctions, you agree to be bound by the following conditions of sale:
1. *Property sold "As Is." *All property is sold "As Is" and without any express or implied representation or warranty by us. The absence of reference to the condition of property does not imply perfect or imperfect condition. All weights and measurements are approximate. Fortuna Auction does not guarantee the working condition of any watches sold. All watches and timepieces are sold without warranty.
2. *Property Available for Inspection.* It is your responsibility to inspect or request additional photographs or condition reports before bidding to determine your level of interest. We encourage inspection to determine property's condition.
3. *Property Withdrawal. *We reserve the right to withdrawal any property before sale and cannot be held liable for any such action.
4. *Right to Reject Bids. *We reserve the right to reject any bid. If the auctioneer decides an opening bid is below the value of the lot offered, the auctioneer may reject that bid and withdraw the lot from sale. If the auctioneer does not receive or accept an advance additional bid, he then may pass and not sell that lot.
5. *Lots with reserves: *We may offer lots subject to a "reserve," which is a confidential minimum price below which a lot will not be sold.
6. *Bidding Procedure.* The auctioneer may advance bidding in any manner. He may decide, or withdraw or divide any lot or combine two or more lots.
