Repair Your Used Watch so That You Can Sell It

Friday, April 19, 2013

If you own a vintage luxury watch you might be able to sell it and earn quite a bit of money, as it can be sometimes very profitable to sell used watches online. However, if your used-watch is broken and no longer functions it will not be very useful to anyone and will not fetch you a very high price on the used watch market. You will need to figure out how to get the watch fixed before you try to sell it.


The first step is to determine what is wrong with the watch. If there are only a few scratches and minor surface damage this can be easily repaired. However if there is something broken inside the watch you might need to get some of the parts replaced. There are many guides online that will help you through fixing a watch yourself and with a bit of patience and know-how you can probably fix most basic problems.

If you are not confident trying to repair the watch yourself you might want to take it to an official repair shop instead. This will likely cost you more money but you will be able to know that the job is being done correctly. The watch shop will have the proper tools for repairing the watch and the right replacement parts to get it working properly again.

You might still be able to sell used watches even if they are broken but you will likely not get as high of a price for them. However, you must consider that repairing the watch will also cost you money and so you want to make sure that the amount you spend on repairs will be justified by the good price you will get when selling the watch. There is no point spending a lot of money to repair a watch which is not very rare or good quality and will not get you a lot of money when you resell it. Figure out the value of the watch first so that you know the maximum amount you should spend on repairs before it becomes not worth fixing.
