Why You Should Sell Your Watch on Chrono24

Let’s say you have a watch you would like to sell but don’t know where to start. Obviously, there are as many reasons for selling a watch as there are ways of selling it. When searching for the best platform to list your timepiece, there are quite a few things to take into consideration. Chrono24 is the leading online platform for buying and selling watches and is always working to improve their services. In this article, we’ll take a look at how to successfully sell your watch online and how Chrono24 can help make things easier.

Reasons for Selling a Watch

There are many different reasons why you may want to part with your watch: You might be a collector who wants to free up some space for a new purchase. Perhaps you’ve inherited a watch and don’t know what to do with it, so you’d rather just sell it? Maybe you only own one watch and want to trade it in for another? It’s also possible you invested in a certain model a while ago, and now the time has come to get a return on your investment.

Everyone has their own reason for selling their watch, but what most people share is a desire to make their watch listing available to the largest possible target audience and, thus, increase their chances of success. That’s where Chrono24 — the leading marketplace for luxury watches — comes in. With over 500,000 potential buyers active every day, the chances of selling your watch on Chrono24 are very high.

Your Watch’s Value

Your Watch's Value

Once you’ve decided to sell your watch on our platform, all you have to do is enter the model name and we’ll fill in all the relevant details for your listing. You can also use our free appraisal tool to help determine a reasonable asking price. Instead of putting in all the time and effort associated with online research and/or an in-person appraisal, simply choose the model and enter its condition to instantly receive its current market value. The tool compares your watch with over 500,000 other listings on Chrono24’s marketplace and calculates the average offer price of watches similar to yours.

Finding Potential Buyers

As mentioned, most sellers want to reach as wide an audience as possible. Chrono24 offers the largest number of potential watch buyers worldwide. In just a few simple steps, you can gain access to over 500,000 watch enthusiasts. Depending on the original language, your listing will be automatically translated into up to 22 different languages, thus reaching even more people around the globe. Furthermore, Chrono24 supports you with helpful advice for creating a successful listing, ensuring your watch is shown in the best possible light.

Once you’ve found a buyer, it’s important to have a hassle-free sales process. Chrono24 facilitates the secure and professional sale of thousands of watches every month. Of those, over 2,500 are sold by private sellers. In fact, 90% of watches listed on Chrono24 end up selling. To ensure transactions run smoothly, Chrono24 offers secure payment processing and a free Escrow Service. This guarantees security for both the buyer and seller during transactions and makes the overall sales process a lot easier.

Chrono24’s commission fees are comparatively low – you’ll never pay more than a single-digit percentage of the sales price – and you won’t owe anything if you don’t sell your watch. If you choose our free Escrow Service, Chrono24 will withhold any fees before payout, meaning there are no extra invoicesto pay after the fact. The Escrow Service not only simplifies the transaction for both buyer and seller, but it also makes the process much more secure.

Once you’ve sold your watch, the only question that remains is what to do with the money. Perhaps you already have a nice replacement watch in mind that you just have to have. It may be similar to or the exact opposite of what you just sold; perhaps it’s more expensive, maybe it’s cheaper — it doesn’t matter as long as the watch speaks to you. At least now you know where to look if you want to call that new dream watch your own: Chrono24.
