How it Works

BUYING 1. Browse listings

Simply find a watch you like. You do not need to register first to browse listings as these are always live and all of our sellers are WATCHDROP approved. We ensure our sellers provide the maximum amount of information possible including condition, year, box, papers, reference number and much more. We also include an average used sale price (at the time of listing) to help you.

2. Offer stage Found what you’re looking for? At WATCHDROP we believe in buying and selling watches at their true market value. Therefore, we give you the control! You now have two options:

1. Buy now- take the watch off the market and snap up  your watch instantly (move directly to step 4)

2. Make an offer- do you want the watch but at a different  price? Simply enter the amount and make the offer. If you need support, simply click “Enquire” and our team will be happy to help with your question before you submit an offer.

3. Offer negotiation The offer will be presented to the seller in their account, the seller can accept or counter your offer until you reach an agreement that suits both yourself and the seller. If the sale is accepted, we move to step 4.

4. Deposit Our secure system will then inform the seller of the confirmation of sale and the purchasing process begins. At this stage a 5% deposit (minimum £250) will be due. If the deposit isn’t made within a reasonable timeframe, your offer will be voided and you could incur a charge. Your deposit is directly secured with WATCHDROP for your safety.

5. Introduction We put you in touch with the seller to arrange payment and collection of your watch at a time/date/location that suits both parties. Payment must be made in one of the methods specified on that watch listing page. Our watches are all from WATCHDROP approved sellers.
