How To Sell Your Designer Watches For The Best Price And Feel Like You’ve Won At Life
Owning a designer timepiece that you’re itching to sell? That’s great – there is a watch buyer at almost any corner waiting to lift your burden.
Wait… is that a good thing?
Don’t rush to it: discover these 5 must-know tips before you sell your designer watch.
Tip #1: Locate The Original Box & Papers
Even if it’s been a while since you got it, you probably still have its receipt and original packaging hidden somewhere around the house. Dig them up! They’re going to be useful in proving the authenticity of your watch.
But if have absolutely no idea where they could be, don’t panic: an expert watch buyer will still be able to assess its value based on its brand, age and working condition.
Tip #2: Research Its Approximate Worth
It’s good to know the approximate value of your piece before going to your watch buyer. A quick Google search will reveal quite a few valuable insights. Don’t get too hung up on what the Internet has to say, though – the online world breeds scammers, especially when it comes to valuable pieces like yours.
Which brings us to…
Tip #3: Keep Your Eyes Out For Scammers
Especially if we’re talking about valuable timepieces, there’ll always be someone out there just waiting for you to make a wrong move. Don’t fall for promises and always, always visit reputable places that only employ watch buying experts.
Tip #4: Don’t Sell Online
Selling your designer watch online can surely be tempting, especially when you need money fast. In fact, that’s what Ebay and Craigslist are for, right?
Searching for a serious watch buyer online who will pay what your piece is really worth may almost be mission impossible. Not to mention, there’s always the trust issue: will you get paid if you send the watch? With Craigslist, it can be even trickier (read: riskier), since you have to meet the buyer face to face. Shady stuff.
