Rolex is one of the world’s most recognizable luxury brands. It’s also one of the most counterfeited, which can make buying or selling a Rolex online seem like a daunting task. If you’ve chosen to sell your Rolex, the first step is to choose a reputable buyer like Bob’s Watches. They are also in excellent standing with the watch community so you can rest assured that you will receive a fair price.
What Do I Need to Sell My Rolex Online?
After you’ve chosen a buyer, the next step to selling your Rolex is to locate your box and papers – if you have them – as well as any other materials pertaining to your watch, such as the receipt or service records. The original box and papers are particularly crucial to the selling process as they can guarantee the watch’s authenticity as well as tell the buyer a great deal about the timepiece, such as the reference and serial numbers and year produced. Service records are also of value as they reveal a lot about the history of the watch. If you don’t have these items, don’t fret. However, they will likely fetch you a higher price.
Knowing the Rolex serial numbers and reference before selling it is also helpful. This information can be used to research the value of your watch to ensure that you receive a fair and competitive price. As previously mentioned, this information is listed on the papers that initially accompanied the watch. If you don’t have the papers, this information is also located on the case and can be accessed by removing the bracelet.
It’s also important to assess the condition of your Rolex. Has it been polished? Does it contain all of its original parts? Does the movement still function properly? Are there any significant scratches or dents in the crystal or fading on the bezel or dial? All of these factors can play a major role in the value of your watch and can give you some insight as to the price that you will likely receive when selling it online.
The next step is to contact the buyer directly for a quote. If you’ve already done your research, you should have a pretty good idea of what the offer will be. An important factor to keep in mind is that the buyer will likely have to send your watch to be serviced, which will affect the offer that you will receive. Once you agree to the price that the buyer offers you, the next step is to send your watch to the company for review. Bob’s Watches provides a FedEx box as well as a prepaid and insured label for you to use when mailing your timepiece.
You will be notified once the watch is received. Additionally, the process of unboxing and reviewing your Rolex is videotaped to create complete transparency and trust between Bob’s Watches and the customer. Once you agree upon a price, the amount will be wired to you same day.
While other options, such as eBay, Craigslist, or a local jeweler might seem tempting, Bob’s Watches is one of the best options for selling your watch. With several years of experience of buying and selling used Rolex watches online, Bob’s Watches has created a process that is easy, quick, and one that the seller can trust.
