If you have ever wondered “What is my vintage watch worth ?” then read this article and get into contact with us.
I love buying vintage watches and every purchase is a little bit of a triumph filled with excitement and some trepidation and then the pleasure of giving a fantastic bit of history a new life ( after a clean and service ).
Whats your vintage watch worth ? I’m afraid the answer to that is anywhere between nothing and hundreds of thousands. There really is that much variation in the prices and valuing watches is not always an exact science.
I will often pay a bit more for watches I “want” to have in stock simply for the pleasure of owning them.
Of course if you have a well known brand and model a quick check on the net will give you the asking prices but there is a big difference between asking , selling and trade and then that is all qualified by the condition of the watch. A nice vintage Submariners value can be halved if later hands and dials have been fitted.
Original boxes and papers will also add a significant sum to the value especially for sought after models. Any interesting documented history will also help. Picture of your grandfather wearing his watch whilst storming the beaches really does excite collectors and me . Inscriptions on the back generally hurt values but not if it relates to a historic moment or person.
What is my vintage watch worth ?
Can you sell it today ?
Yes you can !
Unlike the “big” firms who want you to book a meeting and travel to them only to find you have to leave them the watch for 2 weeks , We have a policy of a fast turnaround and personal to your door service whenever possible. If you can give me good quality pictures of your watch in the morning I can get funds to you via Paypal that same day. If your not too far away we can often meet the same day and I can pay by mobile phone banking or with cash.

The value of vintage watches can vary widely even for the same model. What most people dont understand is that originality is everything including the strap . Unlike classic cars its not recommended to add lots of new parts to vintage watches unless of course they are need to get the watch functioning.
The Buren watch shown above is very well worn but its value would not be helped if it was restored .What Is My Vintage Watch Worth is therefore a very complex question. Take a look at the link below.

We specialise in buying vintage watches that are in need of some TLC. so if you have a broken vintage watch please let us know.
A broken vintage watch has often been left in the back of a drawer or handed down through the family but have not been serviced for many years or are in need of repair.
Sometimes these watches do make it to the local repair shop who can’t repair them ( watchmaking is a dying art ) or they ( the so called watch repairers ) simply want to send them away for a very expensive overhaul. This can often cost as much as the watch is worth and quite often the watches value is ruined by the original hands or dial being changed ( DONT DO IT !! ).
We are happy to look at any interesting or high end vintage watch you have in any condition even if not running as we love rescuing once great time pieces and giving them a new home.
We can also look at your old watch and PX it against one of our more modern watches or even a newly serviced vintage watch. Theres nothing we won’t consider. Just contact us via the web site or even call us on 07768316371 and ask for Simon.
This is an interesting watch I recently bought from my watchmaker ( he is great at vintage watch repairs ) ! he had to change the glass and free up the bezel but other than that its now become my daily wearer and is in effect a rescued broken vintage watch. Yes even quartz watches can be vintage and asI forget to wind my watches up wearing this watch is not a problem.
Not all broken vintage watches can be repaired as many of the parts are not available ( Rolex will not stock or sell parts ) so its often a waiting game until the parts come up normally on Ebay.
