Reviews & Comparison:The Best Places to Sell Your Watch

Selling your watch requires a basic understanding of the used luxury watch market. If you're not careful you can get badly burned. Here are my top 10 places to sell your watch. I try them all so you don't have to.

  1. WatchPayer currently offers the safest possible transaction for selling your luxury watch online. One of the many things that separate WatchPayer from the rest of the pack is that they send your money before you send them your watch. They are able to do this by using 3rd party escrow and completely alleviate and worries one may have when selling their watch online. Superior security plus exceptional customer service are what earned WatchPayer the #1 place on my list. In addition, they were able to get me a better purchase offer for my watch than any of the others I have received.
