Private Buying and Selling Conducted with Expert Care

Imagine that you are in need of the greatest profit you can make from your collection of vintage watches, and you have decided to sell these old pieces at auction in order to raise the money. You have meticulously compared each auction house in order to find the one which offers the most inexpensive fees and commission (even though you may still have to pay up to forty percent of the overall value of your items) and have accepted that you will have to pay the costs.

But would you follow through with this method if you could instead use a private buying and selling service? One which offers true market prices on each item, while eliminating frustrations such as fees on commission, photography, and insurance?

Professional Valuation Service

You are guaranteed to expect a professional service with Burlingtons, whenever you get in touch to sell old watches ranging from Zenith to Rolex models. As excessive auctioneering fees often result in buyers bidding below market value, selling your vintage watches at auction may no longer be a cost-effective method of obtaining money. This is why customers are turning to us more frequently, as we will always offer you one hundred percent of the price of every watch appraisal. 

Our payments are conducted immediately and every valuation is carried out in the security of your own home, protecting even the most delicate of your watches from unnecessary damage that might otherwise occur in transport.

The watch brands we are more than prepared to value and buy from you include:

  • Cartier
  • Cyma
  • Enicar
  • IWC
  • Jaeger-LeCoultre
  • Patek Phillipe
  • Piaget
  • Rolex
  • Omega
  • Zenith

Specialist Appraisals for Vintage Watches

For many collectors and watch buyers, antique watches are just as much an investment as they are an enjoyable and fascinating pastime. Each timepiece in a single collection, whether it is a standard gold watch, one of the last in a set of antique pocket watches or even a piece by Jaeger-LeCoultre, will continue to grow in value and come with its own individual market value. 

This is why it is of paramount importance to know how an antique watch should be valued when examined by a professional. There are multiple factors to consider when deciding on the price of a watch, including the model (classical designs and styles, such as the Omega Seamaster, are especially likely to retain value over models that were short-lived), having proof of ownership with the papers and box, the watchโ€™s overall condition and its rarity and age. 

These varying factors may result in inconsistencies when attempting to sell vintage wrist and pocket watches at auction or to jewellers on the high street, as some vendors and auctioneers will offer average prices for pieces, rather than their full market value. However, when you choose our private buying and selling service, you may rest assured that this will not be the case. Our wonderful working relationships with specialist dealers and private collectors mean that we will be able to exchange any timepiece for their true market value, no matter if you are looking to sell your Rolex watch, Zenith watch, or even an entire collection of IWC watches.

Outstanding Prices Offered for Watch Brands

Your old and antique watches may bring in a reasonable amount of money by themselves, but the fact that is certain to increase demand is proof that your watch was manufactured by a famous or celebrated brand name. As we are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to appraise and sell models from illustrious watchmakers such as Patek Phillipe, Rolex and IWC, we will be more than happy to provide a fair and accurate valuation for any brand name watch you bring to us, no matter the vintage.
