HAVE YOU EVER BEEN FRUSTRATED BY THE COSTS OF SERVICING WATCHES ??

Watches Of Westminster is now offering a postal service for the servicing and repair of all watches including high end brands especially vintage models that are often shunned by high street shops as too tricky to work on.

Even Rolex service centres will not tackle older models !!

We charge a reasonable rate depending on the work needed and will provide you with a estimate of costs prior to any work being carried out and will not carry out any extra work without your approval.

Please contact us via the contact page or call us on 07768316371

Alternatively if your watch is not running and you simply want to sell it please let us know and we can have a chat about about inspection and purchase.

We have been employing our watchmaker for 4 years now and are amazed at what he can do with watches !
The price for a standard service of a non chronograph manual wind watch is £150 and does not include replacement parts if needed or return postage. Obviously a battery change is much less but every watch is treated on a individual basis and our quote form will allow you to tailor the work you want done.

Here at Watches Of Westminster we will travel far and wide to buy the right watch whether vintage or modern even if it needs a service is a non runner.

We like bringing old watches back to life and giving new watches a good home and work seven days a week giving customers fast valuations from just a few pictures. Www are happy to travel to Hertfordshire and beyond to buy and sell the right watch and can arrange a suitable time outside of normal working hours to suit our customers needs.

If you are too far away we also provide a free postal service and can send you a postal pack so you don’t have the hassle of having to find the right packaging etc for the watch.

We can pay cash or bank transfer for your watch and don’t forget we also love a Part Exchange so if you have seen a watch on our website you like and want to exchange your watch ( running or not ) we can give you a price ( either way ) to change and deliver the watch to you .

 

Most other watch buyers have a long and complicated buying process and won’t travel to you. We are the exact opposite and have bought many watches from people simply not willing to go through the long drawn out process.

 

Heres a selection of some watches we have bought recently.

Heres another interesting find just in all the way from Greece a Heuer 3648S with a rare red numbered telemetre ring. The watch is running but is off for a much needed service tonight. It arrived with one of those little loved expanding bracelets which has now been changed but I’ve kept it as in 20 years time Im sure everyone will be saying ” couldn’t give them away “!!

 

The watch has certainly seen plenty of use and there is some discolouration to the dial and a light scratch but to many and myself a vintage watch is always more wearable and interesting with “weathering” after all who buys antiques that look brand new.

Keep an eye on the web site , it may be up for sale at some point in the future !

WATCHES OF WESTMINSTER SPECIALISE IN MAKING THE SELLING OF YOUR VINTAGE WATCH AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE.

 

Here at Watches Of Westminster we love buying Omega Speedmasters especially vintage models and we can complete sales the same day.

Here is another  fantastic Omega Speedmaster a quite rare Mark 2  ref 145.014 with the even rarer racing dial. The watch is fitted with a 1153 bracelet with all of its links and the correct 138 end links. having just had a new service and glass fitted the dial looks superb and the watch is running perfectly.

 

The orange /red markers and red hand really do set the watch off well and it really comes to life once on the wrist and keeps catching your eye grabbing your attention “look at me , look at me !!”

 

Its quite a chunky case at 14.3 mm thick but it doesn’t feel like your dragging a weight around but you certainly know its there as a reminder to check the time and look at that great dial.

 

 

 

 

If you have anything similar to sell just contact me at Watches Of Westminster ,the number above is also my Whattsapp number.

We really do try and make the whole process of selling your watch as quick and simple as possible and can normally make an offer on some decent photographs and we are always prepared to travel for the right watch.

Contact us now , we are open all day every day !

The Bovet watch name is not so well known to some watch buyers but the company has a long and prestigious history starting in 1822 but its founder Edouard Bovet ( 1797 to1849 ) was in fact the son of a watchmaker and he went to London to study watchmaking ( don’t forget England was the centre of watchmaking ( a long story for another blog )) and he started the Bovet watch company in 1822 seemingly to capitalise on the export market to China ( how things change ).

 

As ever the Chinese market dived ( 1855 ) partly due to counterfeits ( just shows theres nothing new in watches !)  the company  was purchased in 1888.

 

The following is an extract from Wikepedia

In 1901, the Bovet trademark was sold at auction in Paris to Cesar and Charles Leuba, sons of Ami Leuba.[7] Jacques Ullmann and Co., another successful production of watches for the Chinese market, purchased the Bovet brand in 1918. After Jacques Ullmann went out of business in 1932, the Bovet name was bought by Albert and Jean Bovet ( some family connection ?) , who were successful watch makers and registered several patents for chronographs, such as the mono rattrapante—a device that would pause the second hand for a reading while the mechanism continued to run.[7] The company Favre-Leuba purchased the name and manufacturing facilities from the Bovet brothers in 1948.[7]

 

This therefore leads us to this really attire watch weave recently purchased  which as 34 mm is a pleasant size on the wrist and one of the prettiest chronographs I have seen for some time.

 

We would love to buy more Covets so if you have one please let us know.

Just in is this fantastic Omega Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11th 40th anniversary 311.30.42.30.01.002.

Created by Omega to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on July 21st 1969 these are limited edition watches (this watch is numbered 5494 out of a total of 7969 ) so highly collectable and a pleasure to wear.
All Speedmasters are great but this model has a particular resonance with the history of the watch and if kept in nice condition will prove a sound investment in the years to come.
If you have any model of Speedmaster  and want to sell it please contact us at Watches Of Westminster and we will give you a fast response.

We now specialise in vintage watches and making the selling process for owners as simple and easy as possible. Depending of course on the watch and distance , a sale can be arranged and sometimes completed the same day with any payment method preferred and if needs be a collection arranged.

Having started run Watches Of Westminster I have had loads of great experiences but have found that my real interest is in finding interesting vintage watches often left languishing in cupboards and the backs of drawers. These watches were the pride and joy of their owners at some point in time but some have been passed on and simply left in a box of momento’s to gather dust until the inevitable house move or clear out occurs.

 

Heres an interesting watch I bough recently and which is now my daily wear.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a Breitling Navitimer Jupiter Pilot model ref 80971 from 1986 issued to the Iraqi Air Force by their glorious leader a one Mr Hussain but somehow it managed to find its way to a car boot sale in England. I bought it from the person who was willing to get up early in the morning and go rummaging and I took a chance that the non functionality was simply a flat battery which it was.

Running a watch business has a number of advantages one being that you meet the nicest of people who also seem to be into vintage cars and motorbikes as I am and I bought this nice Bovet which will shortly be up for sale from a fellow vintage car and bike owner.

With a 34mm case it really is a pretty watch and keeping excellent time.

 

If you have any vintage watch you want advice on just give me a call or visit the web site and send some decent pictures through and I can give you a fast response.

Here at Watches Of Westminster we specialise in the fast valuation and purchase of Vintage watches from all of the main watch brands such as Rolex , Breitling , Omega , Longines , Patek Philippe , Breguet , Cartier , Heuer , Enicar , Jaeger-LeCoultre , Chopard ,and Piaget .

There are literally hundreds of other brands and these are always of interest as here at Watches Of Westminster we buy watches we like the look of rather than just those of the most value. My personal favourites are the Omega Speedmaster and Rolex GMT although at the moment I am wearing the very first watch Bought through this web site which is a square faced Omega Seamaster

 

Here is a great picture of a great Rolex 68 GMT

 

 

Although I think this one is better

 

The watch is next to a nice original Tudor Submariner and a early Rolex Explorer.

Most people selling watches simply do not want the hassle of listing on Ebay or any other of the well known sites which are generally now very expensive to sell on and becoming quite complex to list on . As ever the looming threat of fraudsters is a nightmare even for professional watch buyers like ourselves !

There are many watch buyers in the market but you have to go to them at a specific time and date ,  leave the watch and then have to travel back into town if a deal has not been concluded . I am afraid most buyers assume that being in possession of a watch gives them the upper hand !.

We however can travel to you for the right watch , meet you wherever you are most comfortable with and as long as the watch is as described / genuine will pay the estimated sum quoted on the photos and description provided. Even if minor items are only evident once we have physically seen the watch we do not use that as a excuse to start haggling ( its  just so annoying when people do that ! ).

Some people prefer cash but we can also organise bank transfers or Paypal o the day.

The process is simple , just contact us by text ,Whattsapp ( 07768316371 ) or email                                             ( simon@watchesofwestminster.co.uk ) and add a few pictures and we can take it from there with a fast valuation and pick up.

You are also welcome to call me on the mobile above if you just want a chat first.

Pawning your vintage watch in London can be a relatively simple ordeal if you know where to go, and we’re not talking about your average high-street pawnbrokers. These sorts of establishments should be avoided if you intend to really get your goods back.

Unfortunately, when you bypass the local Cash Converters next door to a chicken shop for a more reputable pawnbroking business, you’re trading in your precious time and patience for only a fractional decrease in funding costs.

A solution then, is what’s needed.

Fortunately, here at Watches of Westminster we offer a watch buying service that combines the best of both worlds. As we are a small and honest online business ( we are also a trusted seller on Chrono 24 the worlds largest watch selling website)  you need not worry about the indignity of daylight robbery, nor the frustrating rigmarole of waiting three weeks only to be told that your watch is of no interest, all at your expense. Instead, we are perfectly happy to come to your home or at work ( for the right watch ) provided your watch fits in with our buying guidelines ( we specialise in vintage watches between five hundred and ten thousand pounds especially if they need some refurbishment ) , and will inspect and evaluate what’s on offer then and  give you a valuation free of charge !

We can buy your watch on the spot or if you prefer give you the value in cash or bank transfer and then give you 4 weeks ( 28 days ) to repay the purchase price and get your watch back as part of our buy back program.

This is in effect a interest free loan but we are not pawnbrokers so don’t have to make our money from charging massive interest rates.

So why not contact us on 07768316371 or info@watchesofwestminster.co.uk  to start the fast and simple process to receive some money for that watch in your drawer or the unwanted gift gathering dust !

 

Here are some of the vintage watches we have recently bought but we will consider any interesting brand/watch.

Whilst Watches Of Westminster are keen to buy any vintage watches , we are also trying to build up a stock of vintage ( pre 80’s ) Speedmasters and spare parts and are looking to make bulk purchases of old stock as well as buy individual watches in any condition with or without boxes.

We are happy to travel worldwide to view genuine stock or can make smaller purchases via courier /post.

If you’ve stumbled upon this blog then I’d like to personally congratulate you on being a click away from our huge selection of vintage and modern watches we have on sale. Here at Watches of Westminster we value quality and variety, in equal measure.

Take a look at our  for sale page to see our 90-or-so timepieces neatly fitting in next to each other in pleasing clarity, all photographed with great care so as to present a clear picture of what our happy customers will one day be sporting.

 


Perusing our stock you may have come across something like our Rolex Prince – highly sought after in this condition and a must for any collector. Having been fitted with a new Hirsch strap the watch looks spot on.The Rolex Prince is arguably the most famous vintage watch ever made. Sometimes known as the Doctor’s Watch as it was often the preferred gift from a rich patient to their doctor, it has a  large sub-second dial. It had a remarkable movement that was the first to be granted ‘Observatory’ status. Unfortunately having been in stock for only 6 months it was sold recently with another customer wanting it the same day !

 

 

 

 

 

Perhaps you may be after something less pricey? Or more modern? In which case keep an eye on our page as we are adding and removing watches every week. We prefer vintage watches due to their charm and price stability but are always on the lookout for good quality modern pieces to tempt you with.

Where can I buy or sell a quality watch in London?

 

Here at Watches Of Westminster, we pride ourselves on buying and selling quality vintage and new watches and offering the best possible service for our clients. We are though often asked the most obvious questions. They are:

 

Are your watches serviced?

The answer to this question is that all our watches are fully serviced (unless clearly stated on our adverts) by our in-house watchmaker and are compelled in ensuring that they are working to a very high standard as a significant number of our watches go overseas.

 

How can I be sure that your watches are authentic?

This again is a million dollar question but we ensure that all our watches are authenticated by, not only our watchmaker, but by our experts in this field who have over 75 years of experience. We also issue a Watches Of Westminster Certificate of Authenticity to put peoples mind at rest.

 

 What is your best price?

This is the most obvious question and one that we understand is part of the sales process. We price our watches to sell promptly but are always prepared here at Watches Of Westminster on agreeing a deal depending upon the circumstances.

 

We appreciate that there are a large number of watch dealers in the UK; in particular in London. We endeavor though to offer our clients a range of quality new and vintage watches that is comprehensive and varied in price, style, brand, rarity and age. But we never ever compromise on the quality of watches we sell or the service we offer.

 

As the partners of the business are watch collectors in their own right, they are also passionate about watches and will always give their honest view on the suitability of a watch, the potential for investment and a true value of a watch sold to us. Enjoying the experience is what we specialize in, here at Watches Of Westminster.

Here at watches of Westminster we specialise in fast watch purchasing and selling. If you want to buy a high end watch or sell a vintage watch contact us.

Why ?

 

  • Customers don’t like to waste time .
  • Customers like dealing with 1 person.
  • Customers like to spend time discussing a watch purchase
  • Customers like to be informed
  • Customers like a fast and prompt service.

We are a small friendly business who only buy and sell watches . We Can personally deal with each and every customer on a individual basis.

                                                       WE KNOW THAT TIME MATTERS !

We generally only buy watches we like so there is always a interesting array of watches for sale like this rare Arnold and Son Longitude                                     or this Breitling Emergency

We have found time and time again that customers are not happy with the long and formal procedures required by the larger watch buying firms. and are grateful for our personal “to your door” service whether buying or selling.

When selling high value watches such as  Rolex , Breitling , Omega , Jaeger-LeCoultre not everybody wants to travel into central London for a pre arranged interview on the possibility of selling a watch and feel it can reduce their bargaining power. We always agree values before we set off and as long as your watch is pretty much as described.

Hand delivered in March

We now endeavour to complete watch purchases within 24 hours . There are some practical limitations to this but 9 times out of ten we can come up with a solution that will have cash in your hand or funds in your bank account within 24 hours of agreeing a figure.

We have often travelled around Europe to deliver and buy watches so distance is not a major problem for example we have just returned from Munich having delivered a very nice limited edition Omega Speedster to a very happy new owner and have recently travelled to Milan , Rotterdam and Poland on similar customer visits.

Having said that a lot of our business is in London and we are always happy to jump on the tube and visit you near your workplace or at home at any reasonable hour of the day even at the weekends.

  • You were thinking of selling your watch,
  • You want to know what your watch is worth,
  • You have inherited a watch you don’t need,
  • You want a interest free loan,
  • You think short term loans are too expensive,

Watches of Westminster now offer what is in effect a free loan service.

 

If you need some short term cash or simply want to sell your watch but not sure about doing so just take us up on our watch buyback service . Its a free service and won’t cost you a penny. Most Pawnbrokers won’t consider vintage watches .We Love Them !

You simply send us details of your watch , we agree a price and buy it from you . If in 28 days from the date of purchase you want your watch back you can simply buy it back from us at the same same price. We won’t do anything with it other than put it in our safe.

Visit our dedicated page for this service which gives you further information.

http://watchesofwestminster.co.uk/luxury-watch-buyback-service/

We specialise in making the process simple and fast. For the right watch we will even travel to you and can pay cash or bank transfer. You will receive a written receipt / contract which give you the right to buy the watch back for the same price within 28 days.

You may be thinking there is a catch but there isn’t. Watches Of Westminster buy watches and having sold us your watch on the buyback scheme theres a decent chance you will let us keep it . Cash Converters do the same thing and typically charge £650 on a £2,000 purchase for 28 days. Thats a hell of a profit margin.

We run a low overhead business so are happy to offer this free service in exchange for the chance to buy your watch.

That old watch you have had in the drawer could be worth a lot more than you think. Collectors are driving up prices for certain watches but you really need to know your stuff especially when it comes to copy watches.

WATCHES OF WESTMINSTER ARE NOW LAUNCHING A FREE WATCH BUYBACK SERVICE WHICH YOU CAN USE TO GET SOME SHORT TERM CASH.

READ THIS ARTICLE IF –

 

  • YOU ARE THINKING OF PAWNING A WATCH
  • NEED SOME CHEAP CASH
  • WANT TO SELL YOUR WATCH BUT MAY WANT TO BUY IT BACK
  • WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOUR WATCH IS WORTH
  • NEED TO KNOW IF YOU CAN GET SOME QUICK MONEY IN THE NEAR FUTURE
  • PART EXCHANGE YOUR WATCH FOR CASH AND A CHEAPER WATCH.

From time to time we all feel forced to make rash decisions. Maybe the current economic climate has you considering pawning that old Rolex lying around in the drawer, or something more sentimental, a family heirloom perhaps.

Pawnbrokers may seem like a great idea. Cash now with the option to buy back later? It sounds too good to be true. Be warned though, as the trick they’re pulling on you is one of the oldest in the book; they know you’re never coming back.Pawn shops have been around for a long time and at one time were  the only reputable way “normal” people could get a short term loan. other than risk a loan shark.

There has been a massive increase in the number of companies specialising in short term unsecured loans but as we all know the costs of these are MASSIVE ( up to 1,500% )

Cash Conversion shops offer a buyback service but on a watch they value at 2 k a 28 day loan could cost you £650 !

 

Pawnbrokers typically charge 10% a MONTH on the contract with you.

WE CHARGE NOTHING

 

 

 

So here at Watches of Westminster we say forego the fool’s gold of the pawnbroker, and come to us! We offer a different but definitely superior alternative.

Simply let us know what watch you have.

 

Visit our valuation page and let us know you want this service in the comments section

Free Watch Valuation

We will buy your watch at an agreed price.

You will receive a written contract.

If during the agreed period ( up to 28 days ) you want to buy your watch back we will sell it to you for exactly the same price we bought it for.

NO INTEREST OR FEES OF ANY KIND

The Original Heuer Watch Company

Heuer (Uhrenmanufaktur Heuer AG ) were a long established watch making company founded in 1860 which was then bought by Tag in 1985 and have made some very fine watches.

 

If you have one to sell ( in any condition ) visit us at

http://watchesofwestminster.co.uk/valuation/

 

Perhaps you have come across an old Heuer online, or possibly at a flea market or sitting in the back of your drawer.

Maybe you were lucky enough to inherit one or receive one as a gift.  If any of the above applies to you then you may want to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Where is the best place to sell it?
  • How do I know how much it is worth?
  • How do I work out how old it is?
  • How do I determine if all of the components are working as they should?
  • Where can I get my Heuer serviced ?

Luxury Heuer Watch Bought Second Hand

Second Hand Heuer watch For Sale

Sell Your Vintage Heur Watch

 

There is a big difference between Heuer watches and Tag Heuer watches, Tag Heuer are generally cheaper, battery operated and the lesser choice for investment, we recommend overlooking them in favour of their pre-85 elders. Popular models to look out for are the Autavia, the Monaco, the Carrera, the Monza, the Camaro and the Bundeswehr.

Now, if you wish to sell, you have a number of options including online trading sites like Gumtree and eBay. A downside to these is their tendency to harbour time wasters and scammers (especially Gumtree). This may lead you to a more personal approach such as jewellers or pawn shops. Be warned however, as these establishments are known for giving low prices in exchange for the convenience and speed they offer. Add to the mix big watch exchange businesses in central London famous for testing customer patience and suddenly your options don’t seem so varied.

So, if you wish to combine convenience with a realistic price  for your watch, your best bet is small businesses like Watches of Westminster. We are more than happy to come to you, provide same day payments in cash or bank transfer and offer part exchanges from our myriad selection of watches. We are also generally able and willing to do  this on evenings and weekends, all of this is to ensure our customers have a quick and easy sale experience.

Furthermore, our valuation and ageing services are of great use to those who wish to sell and we are perfectly happy to explain to you in detail how we have arrived at our valuation. What’s more, if you are looking for a part exchange offer we can bring a selection of the type of watches you may be interested in with us. We also offer state of the art servicing to those who are hesitant to sell their broken Heuer.

 

Whether you are buying or selling a Heuer or just want your Heuer watch serviced please just get in contact and we can do the rest.

Omega Rolex Cartier Longines Breitling London

Do any of the following apply to you?

  • Thinking of selling your watch?
  • Want to part exchange your vintage watch for a newer or different luxury watch?
  • Have you inherited a vintage watch you now want to sell?
  • Have a good quality but non running/damaged vintage or luxury watch for sale?
  • Would like a watch valued before you sell it?
  • Are you worried that a watch you bought may not be an original?
  • Have you been offered a price for your luxury watch by a dealer but think it is too low?

If your in a rush visit our valuation page

Free Watch Valuation

If any of the above did apply to you then in this article I am going to explain the choices you have if you want to sell your watch for cash, without the hassle of going through the time consuming processes involved with most other watch buying companies, or before trying selling watches yourself.

When looking at selling watches for cash, you’d be hard-pressed to find a city that offers you more choice of watch buyers than London does.

Unfortunately, this vast reservoir of trade buyers poses a problem; where do you begin? Jewellers will ensure you walk away with next to nothing, pawn shops will do the same .

Dealers at flea markets may offer you a little more chance of a profit but that still won’t be enough, especially after waiting around in the cold all day.

If you’re after a more substantial selling price you might go to one of the big businesses which are well advertised on the internet, ( how do they afford such large advertising budgets and plush Mayfair offices ? ) .

Be warned however, as their more realistic offers are matched only by the tedium they create. After you have made initial contact and received an outline offer, ( which will always be below your target price which they ask for ) you then either have to post your luxury watch to them, ( not all people are happy to do this and it does involve expense and hassle ) or you need to make an appointment and travel to their London offices.

Add to this the fact that they’ll charge you to post the watch back to you if it turns out to be a copy and your vast array of choices doesn’t seem so impressive.

 

So How Do You Sell Your Watch In London

If you wish to combine convenience with a realistic price  for your luxury or vintage watch, your best bet is small businesses like Watches of Westminster. We are more than happy to come to you, we provide same day payments in cash or bank transfer and offer part exchanges from our myriad selection of vintage and luxury watches. We are also willing to do all this on evenings and weekends , all of this is to ensure our customers have a quick and easy sale experience.

We will buy any watch down to a certain pricing level and are not put off by the condition as long as the watch is repairable.

We are happy to explain to you in detail how we have arrived our valuation of the watch, and if you are looking for a part exchange offer we can bring a selection of the type of luxury watches you may be interested in with us ( If you have not already selected one ).

For the right luxury or vintage watch we are happy to travel, (we collected the Vacheron Constantin below from Poland recently) and meet up at a time to suit you.

The process is very simple and could consist of a simple phone call to us !

As a small business we understand that service to our customers is paramount and we pride ourselves with the fantastic feedback we ask for and get.

Please feel free to call us on 0776820316371  or complete the form on our watch valuation page if you have any queries or would like to sell your vintage or luxury watch .

At Watches Of Westminster we understand the importance of buying good quality watches at a reasonable price. We bought this great watch from a customer who tried one of the high street buyers and was offered 40% less than we paid him !

About the Omega Deville Olympic 48412032

Watchmaking has had a long and fruitful relationship with sport over the years; from Rolex’s support of Mercedes Gleitze in the 1920’s to Panerai’s revolutionary ‘Radiomir’ diving watches made for the Royal Italian Navy in the 30’s. And what better sums up this relationship than Omega’s 84-year long collaboration with the Olympic Games.

Omega’s Olympic series offers you a vast plethora of watches to choose from, both new and vintage. This is a example of the elegant ‘Rome 1960’ model.
