Selling your old watches and pocket-watches

From Timex to Rolex. Whether it's ticking or not put it in your box.

Samples of the watches and pocket-watches we buy

Back in the day a gentleman growing up would be given a pocket-watch as a coming of age gift. This practice has become a lot less popular with wrist watches being more fashionable.

With tastes in watches changing frequently it's not surprising that everyone has old and broken watches they don't wear. Add them to your parcel in any condition.

More information about watches and pocket-watches

We buy men’s and women’s watches, digital watches from the 70’s and pocket-watches, even if they are out of fashion. It doesn’t matter what condition these are in. If they are over-wound, missing hands or glass we will accept them. We will even take just parts.

The earliest wrist watch we know about was gifted to Queen Elizabeth I in 1571 by Robert Dudley. You may not have a watch this old, but if you have one that’s older than 30 years send it in!

We buy many types of watches and pocket-watches. Military watches, wrist watches with unusual faces and unusually shaped cases. E.g. oblong, oval etc.

You can sell watches with missing straps, even the movements from inside pocket-watches. Broken, damaged, empty cases. You can even add watch chains to your box to increase its value.

Whether it's gold, silver, steel, gunmetal, dials with Roman or Arabic numerals, dials with pictures, oddly shaped, any watches or pocket-watches will be a great addition to your parcel.

We buy such a huge range of items. If you have a piece that’s not in this list and you’d like to know if you can sell it to us, please get in touch. read more
