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.
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 !

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.
