If you are interested in selling your Tudor watch, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure you have an easy, satisfactory selling process. Read below to learn more about:
HOW MUCH A TUDOR WATCH IS WORTH
As you begin the selling process, one of the first questions you may is: how much money will I get for my Tudor watch? There are a few primary determinants of the value of a Tudor watch:
- Condition – The better the condition of your Tudor watch, the more it will be worth. Watches with working, original parts are more desired than watches that have been refurbished.
- Model – Certain models are more sought after on the secondhand market than others. Rare or limited edition models may fetch a high price.
- Box and Papers – Box and papers will not only help ascertain the authenticity of your watch, but will also increase the value of your watch on the secondhand market—buyers pay a premium for good condition box and papers.
- Material – The material of the bracelet, bezel, and dial of your watch will have a large impact on the price of your watch. Additionally, any diamond or gemstones on the dial or anywhere else on your watch will increase your item’s value.
