How to Sell Tag Heuer WatchesMarch 9, 2018 - Watch Articles
Selling a Tag Heuer watch does not need to be stressful. Our guide will teach you how to prepare to sell Tag Heuer watches, find out how much it is worth and where you can get the best offer in four simple steps:
- Step 1: Gather information on your Tag Heuer
- Step 2: Compare watch buyers
- Step 3: Get a price quote for your Tag Heuer
- Step 4: Get a final price and get paid for your Tag Heuer
Step 1: Gather information on your Tag Heuer
Before you can start finding potential buyers, you need to collect information about your Tag Heuer watch. The following factors will affect the value of your timepiece:
- Watch Model: Certain watch models are in higher demand than others, such as limited-edition watches or vintage pieces. The watch model should be listed on any watch paperwork that came with the piece as well as on the back of the case.
- Age of the Watch: The age of your watch will influence its worth. A Tag Heuer Autavia watch from the 1960’s may be more valuable to collectors than a modern Autivia watch.
- Condition of the watch: Condition plays a pivotal role in the value of your timepiece. If your watch has not been regularly serviced, is damaged or has been repaired with components from another brand, this will have a negative impact on the price. Conversely, if you have kept your watch in good condition with regular servicing, your watch’s value will be stronger. The good news is that just because your watch has been damaged, this does not mean that you cannot still sell your Tag Heuer.
- Box and papers: These are the original box and papers that your Tag Heuer came with when purchased. You can certainly sell Tag Heuers without box and papers, but having them will help demonstrate your watch’s authenticity and increase your final offer. Collectors prefer to buy watches, especially vintage timepieces, with their original box and papers in good condition.
Step 2: Compare Watch Buyers
There are an array of luxury watch buyers available to you. Below are the most popular options with their benefits and draw backs.
PROS: A fast, local option that pays in cash.
CONS: Pawnbrokers are not luxury watch experts therefore they tend to make cautious price offers. Your watch will likely be undervalued and you could get a much higher price elsewhere.
- Auction Houses
PROS: A traditional selling option for high value items that have watch experts on staff who can assess the value of your Tag Heuer.
CONS: You will need to wait for an auction to be held as well for your watch to sell, which could take weeks or months. If your watch does sell, the auction house will take a percentage of your earnings.
- Online Ads
PROS: User-friendly websites such as Craigslist allow you to easily put your watch up for sale. You get to set your watch’s price and pick its buyer.
CONS: Without industry knowledge of the second-hand luxury watch market, it can be difficult to accurately price your watch. There is no guarantee when or if your watch will sell. You will need to be careful of scammers and ensure that you never share any personal information.
- Online Auctions:
PROS: Auction websites like eBay let you set your own price for your watch and if your watch is bid on by enough people, the value of your timepiece will rise.
CONS: There is no guarantee that your watch will receive multiple bids that will raise its price. Similarly to selling through an online ad, there is no guarantee that your watch will sell and you will always need to be cautious of scammers.
