How to Sell Watches for Money Quickly and Easily?

Do you own a luxury watch that you’re not wearing anymore? Timepieces make wonderful gifts, but all too often they’re left sitting in the bottom of our jewelry box or the back of our dresser drawer. You could leave it in the drawer, hoping to wear your watch again one day – or you can make some money. If you’re ready to put your watch to use for you, here are 3 options you have for selling your watch.


Online Selling

With the internet at our fingertips (chances are good you’re reading this on your phone), it is easy to sell anything we have online. Sites like eBay have become staples for buying and selling items. Putting your watch up for sale is as simple as taking some pictures and putting up a description. Online selling has its drawbacks, however. You have a lot of competition for someone to find your watch as sites like eBay have millions of sellers using their service. You also must compete with prices that can range from extremely undercutting the value of your watch to over-pricing the watch. Then there’s the time factor. Because you must wait for potential buyers to find your listing, it can take several days or even weeks for your watch to sell.


Buy/Sell/Trade stores are another option for selling your watch. What is a buy/sell/trade store? It’s all in the name – they run on a business model of buying items at agreed-upon prices, accepting items in trade for store credit, and selling items people like you have brought it. If you need fast cash, they are a good option, as you are selling locally the same day you go in. However, once you sell the watch, it’s sold. In most cases, you can’t reclaim it from the store without paying the retail price.


Pawn Shops

If your watch has been sitting in your jewelry box or the back of your drawer for a long time, it’s probably because it holds more than monetary value to you. Sometimes, we’re hesitant to part with watches and jewelry because they were gifts or because we know we’ll want to wear them one day.


Like buy/sell/trade stores, pawn shops give you the ability to sell your watch locally and fast. Pawnshops have one advantage over the buy/sell/trade store, however. If you have been hesitant to sell the watch – or just want the option to hold onto it – you can use it as collateral for a loan instead of selling it. If you’re able to pay back the loan, you can reclaim your watch later. This gives you the cash you may need or want now, and your valuable watch back after you’ve paid off the loan.
