Choosing to sell your watch may simply free a valuable financial asset that would otherwise be sitting on a shelf or may provide timely cash injection when it is needed most. As with the majority of products the value of old watches depreciates considerably from the moment that the watch is first purchased and first worn. Although it is true that second hand watches do depreciate in value, they also retain their value to the brand name and the quality of both the materials and the workmanship. The result is that second hand branded watches can become affordable even when they are not very old at all. This gives rise to a very large secondary market for branded watches.
People are often emotionally attached to watches maybe because it was gifted but sometimes they may have reasons to sell it. Of these the primary is money. Since valuable old branded watches give a nice price when sold hence in case of urgent times people resort to selling them. Also before selling your watch if simple restoration of these watches is done they fetch a better price. Like if the metal or jewel is polished, or the dirt and grime is cleaned or probably the wrist band is replaced it can sell at a higher price. To add to this the original papers and case will affect the selling price of your watch. As there are a lot of imitations available in the market hence these stand as a guarantee of real branded watches.
