Selling watches in Hoboken can be a very confusing and intimidating process, especially if you’ve never done it before. The following are some of the most common questions about how to sell a watch. If you have any questions that aren’t answered below, please don’t hesitate to stop in our shop or give us a call at 646-736-7668 to ask. We are always more than happy to help you in any way we can.
Q) How much is my watch worth?
A) There is no way to know exactly what a watch is worth without inspecting it first. Our watch experts will take a close look at every watch, and determine its value based on things like market demand, the brand of the watch, the model year it was made and much more.
Q) How much will you offer me for my watch?
A) Once we appraise your watch and determine its approximate market value, we will make you a fair offer based off of that number, along with some other factors. Watches that are in high demand, for example, we can pay more for. Those that we believe will take several months or even years to sell, we have to offer slightly less for, due to the added expenses and risk associated with buying the watch.
Q) How long does it take to sell my watch?
A) If you bring your watch into our shop, it will typically take us less than an hour to appraise it and get you an offer. If you accept, you can fill out the quick paperwork and walk out with cash in your pocket immediately. If you mail your watch in, we will appraise it and let you know what our offer is within two business days of it arriving in our shop.
Q) What types of watches do you buy?
A) We will consider virtually any type of watch, as long as it has value. Some watches that can be bought new for very little money won’t be worth anything used. We do, however, buy all brands of luxury watches. We buy wrist watches and pocket watches. If you’re not sure whether we’d be interested or not, just give us a call and we can let you know right over the phone.
Selling Watches in Through the Mail
Q) Is my watch safe when it is shipped?
A) Yes. We use FedEx’s fully insured shipping option, which means if your watch is lost or broken in transit, you will be reimbursed for its value.
Q) How will you pay me if I decide to sell?
A) We will mail you a check as soon as possible once you accept. We can also set up a wire transfer of the funds, so you can have them right away.
Q) Is selling watches through the mail legal?
A) Yes. We can buy and sell watches with people in any state without any problem.
