Where Should I Sell My Watch? And Other Questions

Jul 23, 2015

where should i sell my watch

If you’re getting ready to sell your watch or other valuables, you probably have a few questions.

You might be wondering: Where should I go to sell my watch? How do I know what it’s worth? What will happen to my watch after I sell it?

Those are all great questions. You should have all the answers before you make the decision to sell your watch. That’s what we’ll help you with throughout the rest of this post.

If you have any concerns we don’t address here, get in touch and we’ll make sure you get the information you need.

 

Where should I sell my watch?

So you’re ready to sell your watch. Where do you start?

There are many options for selling watches and other valuables. These include pawn shops, websites like eBay, some jewelry stores, and qualified jewelry buyers. Learn more about these options.

Qualified watch experts like us specialize, so that’s where you’re likely to get the most accurate valuation of your watch. We’ll also meet with you one-on-one to discuss the process and work with you to reach a fair price. To us, your watch isn’t our number one priority — you are.

How do I know what my watch is worth?

People think of diamonds as having sentimental value, and they often do. But watches can stir up equally strong emotions. Watches are frequently passed down through generations. When a son receives a watch from his father, it serves as a reminder of the family memories that go with it.

 

If this is the case, you’ll want to make sure to sell your watch for what it’s really worth. You’ll need to avoid confusing sentimental value with monetary value.

The best way to do this is to make sure you’re dealing with a buyer you trust. Research your options before you pick a buyer and look at reviews from other customers. It’s also not a bad idea to get a second opinion on what your watch is worth before you make a final decision.

What will happen to my watch after I sell it?

Many beautiful pieces have passed through our hands over the years. Many were worth much more to their owners emotionally than what any watch buyer can pay for them. We understand why people want to know where their valuables are headed.

The truth is that your watch’s future is uncertain. However, we generally sell directly to collectors, jewelers, or wholesalers. We’re happy to answer any questions you have about what will happen to your watch when you meet with us.

Every sale is different, because you and your watch are unique. But generally, you can expect the process of working with us to look something like this:

  • david steve ron samuelson's buyersGive us a call or send an email to make an appointment with one of our expert buyers.
  • When you come to our office, our receptionist will greet you and introduce you to the buyer you’ll be working with.
  • You’ll get a private consultation with one of our experts, who will explain the valuation process during the meeting.
  • If you come to an agreement on price, you’ll be paid on the spot.

Will you buy any watch?

No matter what kind of watch you have, we’re happy to look at it. We’ve bought Rolex, Patek Philippe, Cartier, Omega, Breitling, and other fine watches. We truly have seen it all.

Have an antique watch? Want to sell a watch you just bought last year? No problem. Our experts can give you an accurate appraisal no matter how old (or new) your watch might be.

Can I sell other items too?

Of course! We evaluate and buy many different kinds of jewelry and other valuables, including watches, diamonds, gold, silver, estate jewelry, and coins. Learn more about each.

If you have multiple items you’d like us to look at, just let us know when you call or email us to set up an appointment.

Conclusion

Selling a beautiful watch isn’t a decision to be made lightly. Just because you get an offer from a jeweler, you’re not obligated to sell. It’s still your watch until you are satisfied with the offer you receive. Don’t settle for less than your watch is really worth.

At our office, we provide a safe, secure environment where we educate you about the value of your watch before we make an offer. We make sure you understand our appraisal process so you can decide if you agree with our valuation.

Call today to make an appointment to sell your watch!
