The online marketplace for buying and selling watches online has expanded rapidly over the past few years. But with so many options in front of you, and different ways to sell, it’s difficult to know if you’re getting the best deal.
That’s why MoneyForWatches.co.uk is the best choice—we make highly competitive offers plus unparalleled service and convenience. Here’s how it works.
The first step is for you to make an enquiry, either online or at 0161 971 1936. You provide us with the details of your watch—its model, its condition, whether it comes with its box and certification papers—and we respond in 24 hours with an offer.
When we message you back, based on what you’ve told us about your watch, we’ll make an offer. We provide no-obligation quotations. That means if you’re not happy with our offer or our service, you’re free to choose an alternative way to sell your watch at any time.
If you are happy, we can arrange collection of your timepiece. This can be at a time and place of your choosing so that we don’t interrupt your schedule. A representative will come and meet you, either bringing cash or paying directly to your bank to complete the transfer. You could also deliver the watch in person to one of our offices if necessary.
We never collect a watch before it’s paid for, giving you peace of mind.
The amount we can offer for your Patek Philippe depends on several factors, not least the model of the watch. Most resold Patek Philippe watches fetch prices between £3000 and £10,000.
Provided you have kept your watch in good condition, it will almost always be worth selling it. The factors that determine the price of your Patek Philippe include:
Whether the watch comes with its original box and certification papers.
The model of the watch. Higher end models retain their value, and consequently sell for more than lower end ones. A Nautilus, for example, will sell for more than a basic Calatrava.
The condition of the watch. Gradual wear and tear, even small scratches, can affect how much your watch is worth.
Despite that, we may offer to buy your watch despite its bad condition and lack of box/papers. Contact us for more information.
There are many services which specialise in buying and selling watches; then, there are generic auction websites or in-person auctions to consider. So what makes MoneyForWatches.co.uk stand out?
Pay first, collect later. We never collect your timepiece without making payment first.
Our Trustpilot rating. We have a 4.9/5 rating, testament to our excellent service and competitive offers.
We buy watches in poor condition, and/or without papers.
If you’re still unsure, contact us for more information.
Patek Philippe is one of the foremost Swiss watch and clock manufacturers. Their luxury brand was founded in 1839 as Patek, Czapek & Cie and quickly established a prestigious reputation. Patrons throughout history have included Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth II, Pope Pius IX, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, John F. Kennedy, Nelson Mandela, Pablo Picasso, Pyotr Tchaikovsky and Leo Tolstoy.
Patek Philippe have maintained their position in the watchmaking world through constant innovation. They have filed dozens of patents throughout their history that have proven to be important contributions to watchmaking as an industry. These include:
The first keyless winding and hand-setting system in 1845
The first Swiss wristwatch in 1868
The double chronograph in 1902
The world’s first all-electronic clock in 1958
Today’s Patek Philippes continue this fine tradition.
The two most popular Patek Philippe wristwatch models are the Nautilus and the Calatrava.
The Calatrava is a model which has been in production since 1932. It was originally designed by English horologist David Penney, who had in turn been influenced by the Bauhaus art movement, as can be seen in its marriage of form and function. The Calatrava has an uncomplicated face with stern, elegant numerals. It can have either automatic or manual movement.
The Nautilus is a more exclusive model. It was first designed in 1976, when the market for exclusive, high-quality sports watches expanded. The nautilus is blocky in design, with a large and slightly square face and blocky numerals to complete the effect.
