Understanding The Process

We make the process of selling or part-exchanging your wristwatch as streamlined as possible. Our website has an online form which you can complete to gain an indication of price from our Pre-Owned Watch Manager, Chris Haynes. If you prefer you can visit any of our stores for an appraisal where a member of our team can inspect the watch, as well as its accompanying documentation, in further detail.

Discover Prestons Part-Exchange & Buy-In

Our Part-Exchange Service

As an authorised Retailer of Rolex, Patek Philippe and TUDOR watches, our showrooms have a comprehensive knowledge of both previous and current collections and would be happy to guide you through each process.

On each part-exchange price offered we conduct an examination of your watch, its condition and the documentation you have. There are a number of factors which could affect the overall value of your watch including any significant marks, its authenticity and documentation as well as its age.

This process has been created to ensure we can offer you a price which is both competitive and accurate alongside the service you always receive at Prestons.

Our Buy-In Service

In the same method as part-exchange, a member of our team will carry out a thorough assessment of your watch, its condition and its documentation. The process has been designed based on our experience with wristwatches and ensures that the journey of selling your wristwatch is one that you can trust.

The final step of this process is payment. Our finance team will ensure, once a price is agreed, that payment is made by bank transfer immediately.
