How Long Does It Take To Consign My Watch?

30 days. While the initial process of evaluation and listing might take anywhere from a few days to a week, the duration of the sale is the most variable aspect of consignment. It’s essential to set realistic expectations and understand that while consigning might fetch a higher price, it often requires patience.

What Is Watch Consignment, And How Does It Work?

Watch consignment involves entrusting a watch to a third-party dealer for sale. Instead of buying the watch directly, the dealer sells it for the owner and takes a commission. Here’s a quick overview:

  • Evaluation: The dealer assesses the watch’s value and authenticity.
  • Agreement: The owner and dealer set a selling price and commission rate.
  • Listing: The dealer markets the watch to potential buyers through various channels.
  • Sale: The dealer manages the transaction and communication with buyers.
  • Payment: Post-sale, the dealer deducts their commission and pays the owner.
  • Return Option: If unsold within a set period, the owner can retrieve their watch or renegotiate terms.

What Do I Need To Prepare If I Want To Sell, Trade, Or Consign My Watch?

Having these in order makes the process smoother:

  • Watch: Ensure it’s in the best possible condition. Full Set:
    • Original Box: The box that came with the watch when purchased.
    • Documentation: Warranty cards, user manuals, and any certificates of authenticity.
    • Proof of Purchase: Receipts or invoices, especially from recognized dealers or boutiques, can add value.
    • Accessories: Bracelet links, straps, tools, or any other accessories provided with the original purchase.
  • Photos (If sending photos via WhatsApp): Clear, high-resolution photos from multiple angles can be beneficial, especially if selling or consigning online.

Having these in order makes the process smoother and can potentially fetch a higher price or more favorable trade terms.

  • Higher Returns: Achieve better selling prices than direct sales.

  • Commission Fees: Dealers take a small fee from the sale.
  • Potential for Unsold Items: No guaranteed sale, and the watch might not be sold within the consignment timeframe. Although about 80% of our consigned watches have been sold within 30 days.


How To Take Care Of A Luxury Watch To Preserve Its Value?

Taking care of a luxury watch involves a combination of proper storage, maintenance, and handling. To preserve its value and ensure longevity, follow these guidelines:


  • Original Box: Always store your watch in its original box, designed to hold it securely.
  • Watch Boxes: If you don’t have the original, invest in a quality watch box that offers protection against scratches and impacts.
  • Avoid Moisture: Ensure your storage area is dry. Moisture can damage both the watch mechanism and its appearance.
  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Prolonged exposure can fade the dial and hands.


  • Regular Servicing: Just like a car, a watch needs regular check-ups. Depending on the brand and model, servicing every 3-5 years is standard.
  • Wipe It Down: Use a soft cloth to clean your watch gently, removing any sweat, dirt, or moisture.
  • Water Resistance: Don’t assume your watch is waterproof. Always check its water-resistance level. Avoid exposing it to hot water or steam even if it’s water-resistant.
  • Magnetism: Keep your watch away from magnets. Magnetic fields can affect its accuracy.


  • Winding: If you have a manual watch, wind it regularly. However, avoid over-winding, which can cause damage.
  • Setting the Time: When adjusting the time or date, pull out the crown gently and avoid making changes between 9 pm and 3 am. This is when the gears align for the date change and might get damaged.


  • Use a sturdy watch travel case when on the move to protect it from impacts and scratches.


  • If you prefer displaying your collection, ensure that the display case is padded, spaced, and can be locked for added security.


  • Only let professionals polish your watch. Improper polishing can alter the watch’s design and devalue it.


  • Keep all the paperwork for your watch, including the certificate of authenticity and purchase records. This will be crucial for resale value and insurance purposes.
