  • Positive Customer Reviews: Always read a company’s reviews to learn if previous customers had a positive experience. If a company only has negative reviews or no reviews at all, this is a red flag and you should stay away.
  • Free service: You should not be charged to learn the worth of your watch or to mail it in for evaluation. Seek out a company that provides a completely free service, including mailing, insuring and assessing the value of your watch.
  • Experts in the luxury watch industry: As you are selling a high value item, you will want to ensure that you are working with experts who understand the second-hand luxury watch market and can best assess the value of your watch.
  • No hidden fees: You should not have any hidden fees deducted from your final offer. Some buyers will provide you with a final price then deduct their fees or commissions, which can be misleading.
  • Secure Mailing: Ensure that when you mail in your luxury watch for a final price that the company you sell to offers a free and secure mailing service.
  • Appointments available: Even if you are only interested in selling your luxury watch online in the UK. A reputable buyer should also be able to offer in-person appointments.
