Come Spring cleaning, if you want to get rid of some old items cluttering up your closet or desk and you’re looking to sell watches Boca Raton may be a few steps ahead of you, but you can still get rid of those old watches without having to lose a lot of money on the deal. Here are a few ideas to sell those old watches without taking a major loss in the process.
1. Market it as “Vintage”
You’ve heard of wine and cheese improving with age, right? Why not watches? Insist that the gold on the band tastes that much better once a watch is a few years old. In all seriousness, classic watches are certainly rarer, and the industry guidelines for vintage place the label on watches at 20 years or older. So if you want to sell a Rolex from the late 90′s in good condition, it is technically vintage.
2. Don’t Just Cash it in
Cashing your watch in for the gold content may be tempting, but if it’s a good one, then it’s probably worth a lot more when sold to an estate jeweler. Take the time to find someone who can help you sell it for its value as a watch – not its gold content.
3. Trade Up
Kidding aside, you don’t always need to sell your watch for cash. You might be able to trade it in for a watch more suited to your style. Perhaps you’re ready to part ways with a watch you bought years ago in favor of upgrading – after all, your tastes have probably changed and -ahem-elevated as your watch knowledge grew.
