Sell or upgrade your watch in 3 simple steps

If you choose the instant sale option, you will be selling your watch in three simple steps. First, fill out our online form, in which you will provide us the most important information about your watch. In addition to some photos, this includes the exact description and reference number of the watch, the year, the delivery/accessory scope and the condition. Once we have received your request, we will send you an offer within 48 hours which you can either accept or reject. If you accept the offer, we will take care of the pick-up of your watch. The shipping is fully insured, as is the cleaning and testing of the watch. The third and final step is the payment, which you will receive within five days. The purchase contract comes directly from us.

As part of the commission sale, your watch will appear in our online shop. The commission sale procedure is smooth and comfortable. After completing the online purchase form, we will arrange for the pick-up and insured transport of your watch, which will then be fully inspected, cleaned, photographed and posted online by our team. The final decision regarding the price is yours to make. Through commission sale, it is often possible to achieve higher prices than with the instant sale option, although the sale usually takes longer.

If you are not sure whether the instant or commission sale is the better choice for you, we are happy to send you an offer for both options, so you can compare them side by side and choose the perfect fit for you and your needs.

Guaranteed Authenticity Thanks to Our In-House Certified Watchmaking Atelier

Every watch bought by us or offered as part of a commission sale in our online shop is tested directly at CHRONEXT in our 350 square meter state-of-the-art workshop. This allows us to ensure that we exclusively offer fully functional original watches. Spare parts from the leading Swiss watch brands are obtained directly from the manufacturers. Certified watchmakers, who are highly specialized in various fields, work in our watchmaking atelier. Many of our watchmakers are backed by decades of experience, which they have acquired from renowned manufacturers.

Two polishers also work in the watchmaking atelier who specialize in housing processing and the finishing of high-quality wrist watches. This ensures the best possible finish in the processing of used watches, so that our polishers can bring even the most challenging cases to a condition that meets the highest demands.

We have made it our goal to provide exceptional service to our customers, which means you are able to contact our workshop team directly by phone, in case of any questions or wishes. Through this direct contact it is possible to discuss details without detours, and thus obtain the best possible service. For example, when buying a watch, the wristband can be adjusted to match the exact size of the customer’s wrist.

From A like Audemars Piguet to Z like Zenith

Whether it’s NOS (“new old stock”) or vintage: we offer a wide range of high-quality wrist watches and are proud of the variety of timepieces available in our online shop, with which we meet the tastes of many different collectors. That is why it does not matter if the watch you are selling is in mint condition or if it is recognizably used.

We purchase watches from all current luxury brands. From Rolex watches, such as the GMT-Master II, the Submariner and the Oyster Perpetual, to classics from Omega such as the Speedmaster Professional and the Seamaster, all have a great value in resale. But we do not only buy watches from the most popular manufacturers such as Rolex, Breitling, Omega and TAG Heuer; other watches, such as the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso, Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope and the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak have always been appreciated and sought by Aficionados around the world.
