Selling Your Watch FAQs

What is the best way to sell my watch to you?

Our new Online Quote Form is quick and easy to fill out, with the option to upload images. If you prefer you can email us at with details of the brand, model, year, condition (working / recently serviced / broken / damaged etc) and if you have the box and papers. A photo is always helpful but not essential.
The form or email allows us to quickly assess if your watch is something we are looking for and we can give you an estimated price. If you are happy with our guide price, then we can arrange a day convenient for you to pop into one of our stores or post it to us.
If you prefer you can come into any of our retail branches during opening hours. We cannot guarantee our watch buyer will be available, but we can always take a few details and contact you again.

What if I don’t know the model / year etc?

Don’t worry about this, just give as much info as you know. A photo can be really helpful but is not essential. Our watch buying expert has a detailed knowledge of the watch market and will know what questions to ask if necessary.

Will you buy my watch if its broken?

This depends on the nature of the damage and would be taken into consideration in our quote. We have an excellent independent horologist and use specific brand service centres for watch repairs. All of our watches are sent for servicing before we resell them.

Do I need to bring anything with me, other than the watch?

Yes. Once we have agreed a price you will need to provide photo ID including proof of address. If the watch has a box and any paperwork or servicing receipts, please do not forget to bring it along. It makes the watch more appealing to our customers and easier to sell, so we will offer you more money if its included.

How do you pay for watches?

We can pay you immediately by Bank Transfer or cash if you prefer. We are also happy to part-exchange against any watches or jewellery from Gold Arts.

Do you also buy unwanted jewellery and scrap gold?

Yes, we are always looking for precious metal, diamond and gem-set jewellery. We also purchase damaged jewellery and scrap gold through our Gold Arts stores. For more information, visit our Jewellery Buying Page or Gold & Bullion Buying Page
