Five Things You’ll Need To Know When Selling A Rolex Watch
1. Locate the model number
Each watch has a model number from the manufacturer. It will be listed in the papers. You’ll also find the model number when you remove the bracelet at the 12 o’clock side of the watch case.
2. Determine the serial number
You can find the serial number listed in the papers. Also, they are engraved between the lugs at the 6 o’clock end of the case.
3. Determine the condition
This is a little easier said than done. Has the watch been worn hard? How about scratches, dents or discoloration of the dial? Is the bracelet stretched? How about the movement? Is it running correctly. An Official dealer like Harold Freeman can help you arrive about the correct grade of condition.
4. Understand real market value
Research, research and more research. By researching the internet you can get an idea of market prices.
5.The importance of box & papers
Always save your original box and papers. Your watch will always be worth more if you have these.
Step 1- Find An Authorized Rolex Dealer
There are hundreds and thousands of so-called watch dealers throughout the United States. So it’s important to find the right dealer. Choosing an “Authorized’ Rolex dealer is one the most important decisions you’ll make. Selling within this dealership will offer the most likelihood of finding the most knowledgeable and trustworthy company with a fine reputation. One that specializes in new and pre-owned Rolex watches. Authorized Rolex dealers answer to a higher authority. The company that makes the finest watches in the world.
Step 2- Get All Documents and Information Related To Your watch
Selling your Rolex for a fair price comes down to having all the key information pertaining to your timepiece. Find the original box and papers that came with your Rolex at time of purchase. The papers will list many of the important detail about you watch such as model number, serial number and the actual age of the timepiece. Many dealers will not buy a Rolex without the papers. The original box and papers will absolutely help you get more money for your Rolex. If you don’t have the papers that came with the watch you can still find the model number and serial number by removing the bracelet and retrieving the numbers engraved between the lugs of the watch. Another good source of information is repair papers. They will authenticate the watch as well. Make sure your watch contains all the watch links. Make sure your watch is 100% authentic and does not contain any aftermarket bezel or dial.
Step 3- Always Get A Free Quote
An “Authorized Rolex dealer” is the best place to get an accurate and fair quote. Many dealers truly have no idea what your watch is worth. Whereas an Official Rolex dealer has a full inventory of Rolex watches and is well versed in their values. Make sure to provide as much detailed info as possible when filling out the “Get A Quote” form thus insuring the highest probability of getting the dealers best price.
Step 4- Ship Your Watch
This can be hard for some people. Knowing you are shipping your Rolex to an “Authorized Rolex dealer” give peace of mind and assurance you watch is safe at all times. Find a dealer who can send you a prepaid, fully insured Fed Ex label at no charge to you.
Step 5- Inspection and Final Offer
Once a watch has been inspected by a well trained watchmaker, you’ll should receive a final offer for your watch. A qualified watch dealer should be able to clearly explain how he or she arrived at the value of your Rolex.
Step 6- Payment
The reason you are selling yourRolex is to get paid. Make sure you are selling it as opposed to trading it in or consigning your watch. Those may be options to consider but clear communication is paramount. Again, an Official Rolex dealer is the safest and best place to sell your Rolex watch.
