Guides on how to buy used watches are far more common than guides on how to sell used watches.

This article will point you in the right direction by giving you a few options.

Firstly we will look at what you must do to ensure you are going to give a good deal to ensure maximum financial return for yourself, then we will look at your options for selling your used watch.

1) Firstly you must make sure your watch is in the best possible condition you can restore it to at minimum cost whilst retaining the integrity of the watch.

The easiest and cheapest way is to give your watch a good outside clean.

Simply wipe over the watch with a watch polishing cloth and then inspect for any scratches etc.

If you have major scratch damage then consider if its worth getting the watch professionally polished at your local watch dealer.

If it is light damage then it shouldn’t be too much of a problem selling it as is, but if it is heavy damage then you should consider the cost of polishing versus what you will lose in resale value and make a decision about getting it polished.

2) You should try to ensure that you have any boxes and papers that are part of the original packaging.

The more you have with regards to the original packaging and the better condition it is in, the better price you can command for you watch, especially with private buyers, dealers do not take this factor too heavily into consideration, but it does help.

Warranties are not usually too much of a concern as they are of no use to the new owner in almost all cases due to the registration policies of most watch retailers with the brands when the watch is purchased new.

You basically have 4 options when you decide to sell your used watch.

a) Private sale.

A private sale is between you and another person face to face.

This can be to a friend or relative, or it can be someone who has enquired about the watch you have advertised for sale.

You can advertise used watches in classified ads both online and offline or even via your website or Facebook.

Caution should be used in using this method. Common sense dictates that there are many dishonest people in the world and someone who arranges to meet you to by the watch after answering one of your ads may not come with the intent to give you money when they leave with the watch. That is putting it very mildly.

Private sales are best conducted amongst friends and relatives, but your circle of prospective buyers is the most limited option on the list.

b) Auction sale.

There are of course several famous auction sites that will enable you to sell your watch in a safe manner and this is by far the best and safest method with which to sell your used watch to a stranger.

The scope of prospective buyers is huge, but be sure to follow all guidelines and be honest about the watch when you enter you listing. Price it fairly and fulfill what you offer.

c) Sell to a dealer.

Selling to a watch dealer is a safe and easy way to sell a used watch but will also bring the lowest return.

Watch dealers will buy the watch at a far lower price than a private individual because the dealer has to perform checks on the watch and any repairs, they also have to try to sell it at market price be able to discount to close the deal, pay commission to the sales people and of course make a profit.

Watch stores who carry pre owned watch selections and of course pawn shops are your best port of call for dealer sales.

d) Perform a trade in.

An increasing number of watch stores are now entering the pre owned watch market and are offering a trade in service.

A “trade in” is when you select a new watch you may want to purchase and offer to part exchange your old watch in against the price of the new watch to enact a discount.

For example, you may have an old watch (watch A) and decide you want to buy a new watch (watch B)

Watch B is $10,000, the dealer offers to sell you the watch for $7500 and watch A.

Basically watch A is counted as a discount for you, the dealer wins as well because they then go on to sell the trade in watch to pull back some of the money they lost on the new watch they discounted for you.

Trade ins are safe and a good way to pull value out of your old used watch but again, unless you are buying a new watch that far exceeds the value of your old watch you will not get as much as you would if you sold it privately.

These tips will point you in the right direction with regards on how to sell a used watch.

How Many Wrist Watches Do You Think There Are?

I recently began an internet business selling watches, and while studying my niche market, I was overwhelmed at the vast range of styles and brands available.

You can pick any brand of watch to discover the different styled watches, colour of watch faces, colour of watch bands, Stainless steel watches, gold plated watches even wood watches are available. When you get into the expensive range of watches you discover a whole new range of watches with diamonds, solid gold watches, titanium, and lots of other precious metal watches and jewel filled watches.

The watch movements vary as well from manual to fully electronic with some newer style watches having heart monitors, temperature, speed, and a whole lot of analytic information available. Then there are dive watches going down to 4000 Mtr, now that’s a long way down but deep sea divers need reliable watches that can handle the pressure at these depths so it’s great to see a range of wrist watches that cater for the individual as well as all the other divers who enjoy the ocean or cave diving.

Glamorous watches make up a large part of the industry because everybody wants to look different from the girl next door. New watches come on the market every day so keep watching or searching for your favourite style of watch, there is something out there to keep you happy when you look at all the watches available right now. I saw a watch the other day that has belts going in different directions to tell the time I was really intrigued as to how it works, it would be a real talking point at a party or with your friends.

In the beginning people could only tell the time from sun dials which they placed over doorways of their homes or businesses, showing midday and the four stages of the sun as it travels throughout the day, the other forms of clocks for telling time were water clocks, not easy to transport when you were on the move. In the 1500’s with the invention of the springs, portable clocks and watches were produced. One locksmith from Germany Peter Henlein created the “Nuremberg Eggs” which could be put on the table instead of being hung from the wall, they only had an hour hand as the minute hand was not introduced until much later and they lost time as the spring unwound but they were popular with the wealthy individuals as they were a truly portable timepiece.

With the invention of the humble spring the world of clocks and watches took a giant leap into the forward. Men didn’t wear wrist watches back in the 1800’s they were thought to be too feminine and only ladies wore them. Men had a watch on a chain which they kept in the pocket of their vest which was called a fob pocket. Remember in the old movies, there would be someone standing at the train station taking out his watch on a gold chain from his fob pocket checking the time, today the fob pockets are still on the vest of men’s 3 piece suits. It wasn’t until someone tied one of these watches to his wrist with a piece of string so he could kept track of time and keep working that he asked a watchmaker to make a watch he could wear on his wrist, a couple of lugs were attached to the sides of the watch and a strap was put on so he could wear it.

It took a long time for this to become popular as the first real use was in the military and watches were worn by soldiers so they could synchronise battle plans, check time without fumbling with a pocket watch, Soldiers wore watches in the Boer War and in WW1. After the Great War more men were wearing watches as they had done during the war and it became recognised as a tribute to those who had served their countries on the battle fields so from this time on women weren’t the only ones wearing watches. By 1920 it was fashionable for men to wear a watch and new designs were being made by a whole range of watchmakers, glass faces were replaced with plastics, different metals were used for the casing, minute hands were added and the rest is history.

When I was child, watches weren’t really worn by children unless you were from the upper class as most families couldn’t afford to buy their children a watch, when out playing one day I remember asking my friend what the time was but neither of us had a watch so he pulled up his sleeve looked at his arm and said “A hair passed a freckle” and we burst out laughing, it shows how far we have come over a short period of time. How many children have a watch today?

The first watch I ever got was back in 1960. Two sailors we knew had just returned from Singapore and brought these watches back for us as gifts I do remember they didn’t last all that long maybe because I didn’t know how to treat or look after it properly, I probably over-wound it, breaking the main spring.

A few years later I was given another watch from a close friend of the family he was an American Pilot and it was a gold Bulova which I still have to this day although I don’t wear it. Every time I see or think about it, I see the person who gave it to me, unfortunately he passed away a short time ago so he and his watch are constantly on my mind.

Its funny when you have your wrist watch on, it becomes a part of you, and you don’t give it another thought all day, you check it quite regularly for the time doing this action without thinking about it. Then one day you leave your watch off your wrist and all day long you worry about where you left it and it nags you until it is back on your wrist. One time during my travels I was at the airport in Paris and wanting to freshen up, went to the toilets, took off my watch, and had a quick wash and then walked off leaving my watch behind. A few minutes later I looked to check the time for my flight and no watch. My heart sank, I hurried back down to the toilets and thankfully my watch was still there on the basin – there are some honest people in the world. I had such a strong feeling of loss when my watch was missing for that short time, it confirmed how much the watch meant to me.

A few months later I was not so lucky. I was on a ferry travelling from Italy to Greece, the same thing happened, washed my hands, left the watch on the basin then went up on deck, I soon realised that I had left the watch in the toilet but this time when I got back it was gone. I reported it missing and had it broadcast over the ships speakers but the person who took it did not return it and I felt naked without it on my wrist, There was a strong feeling of loss, I guess we all have feelings like this when something is taken away from us, something we treasure. So look after your Wrist Watches.

The more I look into Wrist Watches I discover that they certainly have come a long way from the sundials produced in 500AD to the century we live in now, going to the Moon and beyond, humans love inventing new ideas and there is a lot more discoveries to be made on how we calculate TIME and the humble watch will be travelling as fast as the next discovery. Keep inventing Please!

How To Chose The Best Chronograph Watches For Men

What is a chronograph watch?

Chronograph watches were introduced in 1910. A man called Nicolas Mathieu Rieussec invented them in 1821 but no one thought to make it into a wrist watch until eighty one years later. King Louis XVIII of France is very interested in watching a horse race, and he wanted to measure the timing of each race. Thus, Nicolas Mathieu Rieussec was hired to create a device to perform this job.

The first version uses a pen to write on the round dial. The length of the arc directs the elapsed time. The numbers are fixed on the round dial. In 1969 when three companies – Breitling, Hamilton and Heuer- collaborated to engineer the first automatic chronograph watch. This initial model was powered by the kinetic energy generated during normal walking arm motion and movement. A second type of chronograph watch is the modern digital version, which is battery powered. Modern brands of chronograph watches are Tissot, Casio, Citizen, Pulsar and Seiko… Higher end and designer watch brands are Kenneth Cole, Heuer, IWC, Movado and Omega…

They can be used for very specific time measurements, because they have the general time keeping on the main dial or the watch depends on the dials on the watch. You can have up to four dials and each one is designed for a different function. The dial that you see most often, of course, is the continuous seconds dial that is found in the middle of the main face. The rest of the sub dials have functions that measure the fractions of a second, minutes and hours. They also have a telemeter that measures distance and a tachymeter that measures speed.

The chronograph watch is a symbol of accuracy and precision, intended for the purpose of accurately measuring time within tenths or hundredths of a second. Though style is definitely a serious consideration, considering the amount of money that is being spent (though this is not as true with the lower end chronograph watches available from the lower tiers of manufacturers and brands), it is logical and practical to presume that a modern, classic or antiquated style should be part of the price package to complement the functionality and engineering quality built into the measuring instrument as a means of establishing the combination of price, quality, history, engineering and positive product reviews that will enable future sales and profitability.

The watches that the men wear today can do much more than just tell you the time. They are designed with many practical features such as stopwatches, calendars, alarms, digital readings and watches that you don’t ever have to wind up anymore. A Chronograph watch can offer you several different ways of telling time and most people will want one for their collection. Used in many different situations, they are usually thought of as sport watches.

Watches can reflect a person’s status symbol compared to wallets, so collectors can love the art and craft of the watches and appreciate both the beauty as well as usefulness of the watches. For the casual consumers, however, it is unnecessary to consider a high level of engineering since the issue would likely be more styles and social advantages than to have a truly quality engineered project.

The Chronograph watch buying guide that is listed below show some of functions of the watch so that you can see how well they are made and help you make a clear decision on buying one.

1. High Accuracy

With chronograph watches, the accuracy has to be top priority. If you buy chronograph watches which have the certified chronometer, I think that is an optimal choice. Chronometer is a certification of accuracy tested by a Swiss laboratory, the Control Official Suisse des Chronometers (COSC).

2. Materials:

A. Case Materials:

Most of the cases are made of metal, so it is important to protect the movement and the dial as well as consider the style and durability of the case material. In high quality watches, Stainless Steel is the most popular metal because it is attractive and resists both discoloration and tarnish. Gaining in popularity is Titanium because it is lighter in weight and just as durable as Stainless Steel, but gold sets the standard for truly luxurious watches for men’s timepieces.

B. Band Materials:

There are two different styles of watchbands such as the strap and the bracelet and available in many different materials. A series of interlocking metal links which is a bracelet and fabric, synthetic, rubber, nylon or leather is used for the straps. You can use casual designs and also dressy versions of your wardrobe to add beauty to leather. Some of the bands also use the fabric straps and fine faux leather. You can mix and match on your bands depending on which case you use.

C. Crystal Materials:

The crystal is the clear protecting cover fitted tightly over the face of the watch. Depending on the brand, style and price that material’s crystal chronograph watch is different. It is often shocked or blows, so it should be as hard as possible. Because the crystal is made of soft material, it will be easily scratched and broken. Which will make the watch less enticing and presumably illegible, or if shattered, which will probably damage the watch and in the worst case you cannot repair it. There are four types of crystals that we often encounter: plastic, mineral, synthetic sapphire and sapphire. Amongst these, sapphire is the most expensive and hardest. However, pure sapphire is very brittle and fragile when it collided. Therefore, a proprietary material or synthetic sapphire can also be a good choice for you.

3. Movements

A. Quartz Movement

If you need precision, quartz movement is an excellent choice. A mechanical movement may be wrong several seconds in a day while a quartz movement only wrong a few seconds per year. A quartz movement is powered by using a battery. The most affordable watches usually use a quartz movement. They are cost effective and combine the movement of the chassis with the jewels of a mechanical movement that make the most durable and accurate quartz movement.

B. Mechanical Movement

This movement uses a spring that must be wound up by hand using the crown that is located on the case. As the spring slowly unwinds it releases the energy that powers it. These watches that are well built can last a lifetime. The mechanical watches are quite expensive because they are meticulously crafted and artistic wonders of the watchmaker.

C. Automatic Movement

The automatic watches have mechanical movements that contain the energy made by the wearers’ arms that winds the spring. This means you do not have to wind the watch every day. Most of the luxurious and high-end watches are equipped with this type.

4. Size

A. Case sizing

At ablogtowatch.com, which is a famous site for watches, has surveyed hundreds of their readers. Ariel Adams, author of the site, said over 90% of men prefer watches with the size from 40mm to 44mm. So you can also choose within this range. However, if you want to be more certain, I’ll show you a trick. Accordingly, please follow two steps below.

Step one: determine the size of your wrist

You should use a soft tape measure round your wrist (should be tightly wound)at the position in front of outcrops emergent in the carpal as shown.. In case you do not have a tape measure, you can use a soft rope or a piece of paper around the wrist position required to wear. Measurement is completed when you can measure the length of the hard yards or meters using online tools at: http://iruler.net/.

Step two: Formula for calculating the diameter to fit your wrist

– Convert size is measured in steps 1 to mm. For example: 16cm is converted to 160mm.

– You can get the size measurement by dividing the diameter of watchcase.

For example: You want to buy a watch with a diameter 38mm to 160mm of your wrist, the result would be 160:38 = 4.2

You need to be interested in the result of the division as mentioned above. The watch will best suit you with ratios ranging from 4 to 5. Less than 4 that is too large, greater than 5 that is too small.

For example: You have the wrist size with 160mm. Watchcase right for you will have sizes from 32mm to 40mm.
Note:

– If your wrist is slim but big in width. You should choose watchcase has the index slightly less than 4..
– With sport watches and diving watches you can wear a watch with index less than 4 without any problems.
– If your wrist is small, you should not choose watches too thick.
– If the lug is too long, you should not choose sizes too big.
– Square-shape watchcases always look bigger than round-shape ones.
– With oval and rectangle watches, you can measure your wrist horizontally.

B. Band length:

Conventional watches for men have long wires from 196mm to 241mm. Usually, the kind of leather straps is perforated several holes to fit many different wrist sizes. With the kind of metal band, there are generally many chain links to be connected together. So, when you remove the chain to wear fit your wrist, you should keep those unused chains to prevent from the alterable size of your wrist, or the link that you are using is damaged.

5. Water resistant

Normally, chronograph watches have a high level of water resistance, especially for the chronograph with sporty style and diving watch. However, to be safe for daily activities such as swimming or bathing under the showerheads, you should buy chronograph watches at least 100 meter- water resistance.

6. How much is your budget?

You need to set up a budget for the chronograph watches. This is something you cannot ignore. There are many cheap chronograph watches on the market, but with a good chronograph watch, perhaps you should spend at least 100 dollars for it.

Rhodium is an extremely durable metal and resistant to scratches and tarnish and its characteristics are enormously reflective to highlight.

Rhodium plating and how it is done?

Rhodium plating which is also known as rhodium flashing is a technique that costs a fine layer of the metal over platinum, white gold, and silver Jewellery to enhance their shine and performance. This technique of plating is temporary and might wear off in time. The durability depends on the usage and the thickness of the original plating.

Top Benefits of Shopping for Jewelry Online

Gone are the days when buying jewelry required hours spent with a marketing person who has only a handful of pieces in the store. Today, buying them online is as easy as just pick and click and the choosing at the tip of your finger dominates the offline retailers. Online shopping for jewelry that remembers your special occasions brings nothing but advantages to you as a buyer in at least 5 distinct ways.

Saves more money

Of any transaction, the price is a factor and it emerges largely when you are buying them, whether it is a costume for your kid’s school play or a diamond neck piece for a wedding present. Shopping online saves you more by giving you a detailed price information and making it easy to compare what other retailers charge for the same items. As a buyer, you can open multiple tabs in your system, each with an item you are willing to buy and directly compare prices.

Easy comparison

Searching for your favorite piece in various tabs helps in another way; it allows you to compare similar items side – by – side. This is not possible in – store shopping experience. To compare it at a traditional store, it might need some assistance and what gets shown might not represent the complete range of options. For instance, a simple gold ring comes with so many variations that no one store can fulfill your requirement. Online, finding the right piece you need is as simple as typing the keyword. Various jewelry retailers make it easy by offering a search bar on all pages. You just have to drill down their category.

Everything will be in stock

This is another area where online shopping for jewelry excels over in – store purchases is in the high probability that the piece you are looking for is in stock and ready to ship. A retailer might run of that particular piece you have set your heart on, but online jewelers are not limited to the stock.

Shopping at your own pace

Buying gold jewelry is potentially a huge – ticket purchase, and feeling rushed to purchase makes for a rewarding experience. Even if your offline store rep is being mannered, there are still a certain pressure to purchase quickly and go, which can end up to hurried decisions. This pressure is avoided when you shop online. Shopping on the web can be done in private, away from outside tension and without any sense of commitment.

Bundling orders together

Purchasing multiple items at once might be a headache in an offline store. Even if the retailer you visit, has that piece you were eying on but you might not be able to find the type of brooch or pendant you are looking for. Purchasing online gets around this situation by letting you purchase for as many pieces as you need and then bundling them together into one transaction with low shipping cost. Online retailers do offer free shipping for orders above a certain amount.
