How to Sell Tag Heuer WatchesMarch 9, 2018 - Watch Articles
Our guide will teach you how to sell Tag Heuer watches, find out how much it is worth and where you can get the best offer in four simple steps.
How to sell Tag Heuer Watches:
- Step 1: Gather information on your Tag
- 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
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: If your watch has not been regularly serviced, has damage or repair with parts from another brand, this will impact the price. The good news is that you can sell damaged Tag Heuer watches.
- The original Box and papers: 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 box and papers in good condition.
Step 2: Compare Watch Buyers
PROS: Pawn shops are a fast, local option with the option of cash payment.
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.
