Many people are hesitant to sell their watch to us through the mail, when they could just sell it to a local buyer, or even to a private party through online auction sites. The fact is, however, that we are able to pay significantly higher than just about any other option. This is because we buy far more watches each year than other businesses, and since we’ll be appraising the watch in person, we can give a fair price.
When a private party is deciding whether or not they should buy the watch through an auction site, they can’t really get a full understanding of the value of the watch. With this in mind, they have to bid very low to avoid any problems. In addition, people bidding on these types of sites are primarily interested in getting something for as cheap as possible, which is not what you want when you’re selling a watch.
There are jewelry stores and pawn shops in most areas that are willing to buy watches as well, but they won’t be able to pay nearly as much as we can. This is because they don’t typically have a watch expert on staff to appraise the true value of the piece. We don’t just look at the price we can get for the raw materials of the watches we buy. We factor in things like the current market demand, the brand and year it was made, and much more, so we can pay top dollar.
If you decide to sell your watch to us through the mail, you’ll still get the excellent customer service we are known for. You can call us at 646-736-7668 any time with questions, or to get an update on the process. We work hard to complete all these transactions as quickly and easily as possible, so you can have your money right away.
