Sell Your Vintage Watch Through Consignment

If you’re not in any real rush to sell your watch, selling on consignment could be the option for you. While you won’t get instant cash for your timepiece, you are more likely to get the very best price available for it.

What is Consignment ?

When you give your watch to us on consignment, we sell it on your behalf in return for our modest commission.

As there is no initial financial outlay for us with this option, it means we’re able to give you a higher percentage of the sale price – which, on average, returns 5% more than our instant cash deals.

If you’ve had a watch sitting around in a drawer for years, this is a really good option for you. We request three months to sell your watch (they usually sell considerably quicker than this) and we can also extend the sales period.

And, in the unlikely event we don’t sell your watch, we’ll provide you with all of the marketing materials we create for the watch to help you sell it by another means.

Advantages Of A Consignment Sale

The Best Price

Although we offer great prices, up to 50% more than traditional dealers, we can’t offer the best possible price with a cash sale.

With a consignment sale, you will achieve the top price upon sale, and be kept up to date with any news on your watch while it is up for sale.

Less Hassle

When you sell your watch with Vintage Watch Buyers through consignment, you just send us the watch and we handle the rest. If needs be, we can arrange for servicing or valeting of your vintage watch before listing.

We also deal with the photography of the watch, listing and marketing. Once the watch sells we deal with all logistics of shipping, meaning you can relax from the minute you send your watch to us, knowing it’s in safe hands.


When selling privately, it can be risky letting others know all over the internet that you’re in possession of a vintage watch. When you sell with us, we keep your watch in an undisclosed, high-security location, 24/7. In the unlikely event anything happened to your watch, you are 100% insured.

When it comes to shipping the watch upon sale, this can also be a risky task for private sellers.
Thankfully, we handle every aspect of this so you don’t have to worry at all.
