How to Sell Used Rolex Watches in San Diego

A Rolex is built to last a lifetime, which is why a used Rolex often commands such a good price from San Diego watch buyers. If you are considering selling your used Rolex, please keep in mind the following tips and facts provided by the staff of SDJB.

1) Rolex sets the prices of authentic new Rolex watches which may not be discounted by authorized dealers. But such price controls can not be enforced when it comes to the market for used Rolex watches; and this benefits both the buyer and seller of a used Rolex watch.

2) San Diego watch buyers like SDJB look for original Rolex parts when buying a Rolex watch. Non-Rolex replacement parts will lower the price for your pre-owned Rolex watch considerably.

3) You will get a much better buying offer for your used Rolex if it is being sold with the original Rolex box and papers. This is due to the serious problem of counterfeit Rolex watches.

4) A Rolex watch with an original band that remains tight and like new will bring a higher buying offer than the same used Rolex watch with an older looking, looser band.

5) Do not refurbish the dial of your pre-owned Rolex before selling it. The original dial is worth more than a refurbished dial, even if the original dial does not look like new.

6) Be sure you know exactly what material your used Rolex watch is made from before researching its worth, be it made from platinum, stainless steel, two-tone gold, or 14k/18k white or yellow gold.

7) Don’t be discouraged if your used Rolex is not working. A pre-owned Rolex that is not working often will receive a buying offer close to one for the same watch in working condition.

8) Those that plan to sell Rolex watches on e-bay are advised to:

a) Take a picture of your used Rolex, showing the serial number, before shipping the timepiece.

b) Use a Paypal account that is linked to a bank account with a $0 (or very small) balance to protect yourself from fraud.

c) If you suspect that the buyer is engaging in return fraud and has tampered with your used Rolex or replaced it with a counterfeit, open the package at the post office in the presence of a post office official.

d) If possible, show potential buyers proof of where you bought your Rolex watch.

e) Sell only to Rolex buyers who are located in the United States.

9) If you are selling your used Rolex to a friend or acquaintance that has concerns about buying a used Rolex watch, please have them read San Diego Jewelry Buyers’ article about Real Rolexes vs. Fake Rolexes.

10) If you need immediate cash for your used Rolex today, seek out a local fine jewelry and watch buyer like SDJB, who specializes in elite timepieces, and who has market contacts locally, nationally, and internationally. The larger the network of buyers your professional Rolex buyer has, the easier it is for them to pay you a higher price for your pre-owned Rolex.
