We buy broken watches !

Most of us have a old broken watches sitting in the back of a drawer or that was left to us by a relative. Like most things mechanical however watches need to be serviced and repaired and unfortunately this is not a inexpensive process . For most cheap watches the cost of repair is simply more than the value of the watch ( unless it has sentimental value ) but there are plenty watches around that are worth repairing but quite often the cost of repair ( £600 for a decent service on a high end watch ) is not something a owner will want to fork out.

At Watches Of Westminster however we have a in house watchmaker who loves the challenge of getting a watch running properly so sell us your broken watch and we will give it a good home .

Having done the first year of a watchmakers course believe me mending watches is a very tricky job which does explain why its a rather expensive process. I went to the Epping Forest Horology centre and vey much enjoyed my course so if you fancy a go check this link out

http://efhc.org.uk/wordpress/

If you want to move your watch on to a good home then contact us with a couple of decent pictures ( front or back ) and we can give you a fast valuation and either pick the watch up or arrange a free postal package so you can post the watch to us.

You can go to our valuation page or just send the pictures direct to me on 07768316371 via text or Whattsapp and you will get a fast response. No need for a visit and a wait, it can all be done remotely.

Even if your watch is missing parts such as the glass or winder it can be repaired and we are keen to repair it .

We have bought hundreds of watches this way and have proven track record in keeping customers happy.

Your broken watch could be worth more than you think so get in touch with us and we can complete the whole process quicker than you think.

We buy broken watches from around the world so don’t be put off if you are abroad.

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 ).

Just beautiful !

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.

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.

It is really that simple just check out the valuation page on our web site or Whattsapp me ( Simon) on 07768316371. I am the owner of the business and I love buying watches !

I am the owner of Watches Of Westminster please read the about me Section on my website. I really do like buying and selling watches especially vintage models ( anything up to late 90s ) even more so when they need some rescue / repair . Its not about the money ( thats a very long story ) and you do meet the most interesting people / customers in this business .

Sadly the most prominent company in this market Austin Kaye the cornerstone of vintage / high end watch retailing for over 60 years sadly closed their shop on the Strand central London. So many people ( even me ) have now have to forgo that lunchtime browse of gorgeous want to have watches ( I even went into the shop last year and nearly bought a Speedie at retail !!)

If your heading to London and want to look at a few of my watches just let me know and I would be happy to meet you at your hotel or any other (public ) location to suit in or around London and talk watches especially if that include a PX.

Its just what I do and it is for the fun of it

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 !

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.

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.

 

Take a look at our sales watches , we do not leave sold watches on our site !

Read this article if ;

  • You were thinking of Pawning your watch,
  • 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,
  • You have a vintage watch to sell/Pawn

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.

https://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.

 

Maybe you have been left watch collection , trying to sell each watch off is a nightmare. Watches Of Westminster specialise in buying collections even if the watches need work.

If you want to sell your Rolex GMT then here at Watches Of Westminster we love to buy vintage Rolex “tool” watches such as The Rolex GMT Master.

A 1971 GMT

We make the process very quick and simple . A staff member from Watches Of Westminster will also travel to your home to collect the Rolex GMT in person.

The Rolex GMT master came about in 1953 when Pan American Airlines and a airline from Europe ( quite possibly an Italian one ) actually approached Rolex ( who had one of the best reputations for tough accurate watches ) to develop a watch that could tell the time in 2 time zones. The Rolex GMT simply gets its name from Greenwich Mean Time and has been copied many times by other manufacturers.

Aeroplanes were not very sophisticated in those days as they are now and knowing the time in the time Zone you flew from and were flying to was quite important !

The watch with the Pepsi bezel is now an iconic design loved by many including myself ! The 2 below are in my collection !

WHAT ARE THEY WORTH ?

Part of our collection

Depends very much on age , dial condition and existence of paperwork and boxes but if you send us some decent pictures of the front and back of the watch plus any boxes or paperwork we can give you a fixed price for the watch the same day
