Top 6 Reasons to Consign With Crown & Caliber

Selling a luxury watch is not always the easiest thing. There are many channels you can use: eBay, Craigslist, forums, a local jeweler or a pawn shop, but there’s always that element of mistrust. Online, how do you know the person on the other end is legit? And if you go local, how do you know you’re getting the most money for your watch?

Crown & Caliber was created to play the middleman, using the power of modern technology to proactively sell watches for individuals to other individuals, eliminating any residual frustration and skepticism for both parties. So here you go, the 6 reasons why consigning your watch with us is the best way to sell your watch:

1. Our Pricing Expertise

One thing that sets us apart from other sellers is our extensive market research process. Our Valuation team has built a comprehensive database of watch sales and auctions, and once they have information on your watch, they get to work. So when we tell you what your watch will sell for, we’ve backed it up with hard data – no throwing out a number and seeing what sticks.

2. C&C = Convenience

Sometimes doing it the DIY way is more hassle than it’s worth. Consigning with us means that the only effort you have to put in is getting the watch to us – we take care of the rest. We pay the cost of shipping your watch to us, we do all repairs and service in-house, and we put all the man-power into getting your watch sold. Most of our watches sell within the initial 30-day listing period, but if you decide you want your watch back after that point, you won’t have to pay a single fee.

3. Our Watchmakers

We have five certified watchmakers on staff who take apart, inspect, repair, and clean every watch that comes through our facility. That sort of service generally comes with a hefty price tag anywhere else, but with us, it’s a steal. Plus, it has the benefit of adding some value to your watch when it sells.

4. Our Marketing

Why do all the work of trying to sell your watch when we can do it for you? Beyond listing it on our website, we have multiple marketing channels that we use to get your watch in front of our global audience and retail partners, and our sales staff is working directly with clients every day to get your watch sold.

5. Buyer Confidence

Because we’ve spent time and energy into building a credible reputation as a seller and because we have the resources to verify each of our watches is the real thing, buyers don’t have to worry that they’re getting a fake watch when they purchase from us. Even the Better Business Bureau thinks we’re A+.

6. Money in your pocket.

If you want the most money for the least amount of effort, consignment is the best option. Minus our standard 19.5% consignment fee when your watch sells and a small fee to compensate our watchmakers for their time, when your watch sells, all of that money is yours. Plus, the holidays are fast approaching – wouldn’t it be nice to have a little extra spending money?


Of course, we don’t want you to just take our word for it. See what our clients have to say about us here and here.
