We Buy Any Watch
Excellent company and so easy to deal with. Brilliant and the customer service was second to none. I have now sold 3 watches to them and bought three watches from them. All purchases have been in excellent condition and I'm very happy with them. Can't recommend highly enough.

What a first class company to deal with. Trading my old watch was simple, the value quoted before seeing the watch was the price paid. The purchase of my new watch was simple and the delivery service superb. The new watch was exactly as described. I would urge anybody who is unsure online about a watch purchase, to use this company. You will not be disappointed.
Excellent service. I traded in three watches and received an excellent price for them. I received 60% more for them than at a watch retailer in Glasgow. The watch I purchased from Watchfinder was perfect and looked as if it had never been worn. It was as described on their website. I would happily purchase other watches from them.
Great deal, buying and selling. Got better deal on my watch than jeweller from whom I bought the watch offered. Then decided to trade and within 2 days had new watch with me in N.Ireland. Everyone was great and very security conscious, which was reassuring. Would recommend Watchfinder to try to anyone.
We offer a trade price (not the retail or insurance valuation price) based on the market value and condition of the watch. We like Swiss Made watches, English & German micro brands, and Premium Japanese watches. We buy vintage and modern watches. We can even quote to buy your watch if it is damaged or requires a battery or service.
Unfortunately we cannot buy every watch we are offered. Often it may be uneconomically viable to purchase your watch, or we feel demand for your watch will be limited. Please see the below guide to give a better indication of watches we can offer to buy. If you are unsure, please feel free to submit a quote request for review.
We will not quote if images of the actual watch are not attached (or of poor quality), and if insufficient information has been supplied to identify and assess the value of your watch.
Since 1996, Webuyjunkwatches.com has purchased over 40,000 pre-owned fine watches, both vintage and modern, from the public. Contact us for a quote on any watch, either using our online quote request or by phone at (305) 956 9676 or (786) 252 0416 .

Until recently there were limited options for your broken watches. You could store them. Use the parts for something else, or get them repaired. These days you can actually make money selling your broken watches.
You can sell used watches for cash. You may not make as much from used watches as you would from brand new ones, but if you have antique or vintage watches they may be worth more than you might initially think.
When watches command high values it is because they are collectable. Collectors favour specific antique and vintage watches and luxury watches like Rolex and other Swiss made brands. If your used watch is branded, designer, antique or vintage then you'll make money selling it. Always remember that how much you make is dependent on a lot of different factors. The age, condition and rarity of the used watch determines how much you can make when selling it.
Used watches that aren't very valuable tend to be modern, battery operated, mass-produced, non branded watches. These types of watch are produced in large numbers, so they are easy to get hold of, therefore they aren't very collectable and as a result, not very valuable. These kinds of watches can still be sold, but you won't make very much money selling them, especially if you sell them on their own.
Used digital watches can also be difficult to sell. These are usually mass produced, so they aren't in demand amongst collectors, you can still make a little money selling used digital watches, but unless you have a rare one, they won't be worth much.
In the section about used watches above, we pointed out that antique, vintage, Swiss and designer watches tend to be favoured by collectors, that's what makes them valuable. The same goes for broken watches. While you might not make as much selling a broken watch as you would a working one, some broken watches can still fetch high sums of money.
When dealing with luxury and antique watches any repairs have to be carried out carefully with authentic parts, these parts come from broken watches. Collectors will often be on the lookout for broken watches, either so they can repair them and sell them on, or so they can use the broken watch to repair other watches.
If a broken watch has a particularly attractive history, it might still be worth more than the same watch in perfect condition. You won't make as much selling old broken watches as you would if you had an antique or vintage watch in mint condition, but they are still valuable.
When you sell broken watches, it doesn't really matter what part of the watch is broken. Sometimes even the movement from inside can make money when it's sold, especially if it's a branded or unusual movement.
As with used watches, modern, battery operated, mass produced, unbranded watches won't be valuable when broken. You would be unlikely to make any money selling these types of watches on their own. If you have a number of these kinds of broken watches try selling them as a group on eBay, sometimes crafters or jewellers will buy a group of broken watches for their gears. With these type of watches the more you sell in one go the more money you'll make and the more chance you'll have of making a sale.
Antique and vintage watches tend to retain value because they become rarer over time. They also have historical value which is of interest to collectors. Sometimes an antique watch that isn't that valuable can sell for a lot of money if it belonged to a person of interest.
Aside from their value watches can be valuable simply because of the materials they are made from. Some watches are made with gold, silver, diamonds or gemstones, these materials retain value even if the watch doesn't. Just because a watch is made with gold it doesn't make it intrinsically valuable as a watch. If it's a common model and it's not in demand it may only be worth as much as the material it's made from. Broken watches that are made from precious metals, if not intrinsically valuable can be sold for their metal content.
If you want to sell a used watch there are lots of options open to you. You can sell privately on a platform like eBay or Etsy or you can search out sites specifically for selling used items, like pre-loved.
Auctions are a great way to sell something special, especially if there might be large sums of money involved. One of the great things about an auction is that there are specialists there who can value your used watches before they go under the hammer to be sold to the highest bidder.
The biggest disadvantage of an auction is the associated fees. Before considering an auction check how much your used watch is worth and compare that with the fees charged which will give you an idea of the profit you can make.
If you don't have the box and the papers look for your serial number on the watch. This is usually located between the lugs at the 12 or 6 o clock position. You may need to take the strap off your Rolex to read the serial number, if this is the case make sure you take your Rolex to a jeweller who will be able to help you find the serial number without damaging the Rolex.
You can sell broken watches in much the same way as used watches, but you may find there are less companies that will buy broken watches off you. Where you sell your broken watch will likely depend on how much you stand to make, so it's always a good idea to get your watches valued before you sell.
Private selling is a great option if you only have a few broken watches to sell. The chances are that you won't make much for selling one broken watch, but you will make more if you sell broken watches in groups.
If you are selling broken antique, vintage or branded watches privately it's a good idea to get them valued by an expert first. An expert will tell you how much you can expect to make when selling your broken watches and will be able to spot anything rare, unusual and valuable.
When selling make sure you don't hide the fact that your watch is broken. If you aren't up front about how your watch is damaged you can expect trouble from your buyers down the line. When advertising your broken watch for sale, or discussing a sale with a buyer, explain what parts of the watch are damaged and offer photographs to help your buyer make a decision.
Before selling at auction make sure you know how much your broken watches are worth, this will help you decide if the fees are worth paying. This might be a good option if you have a group of Swiss watches or antique and vintage watches.
