Superior Knowledge of Rare Watches & Larger Resale Network
When deciding where to sell a watch in Los Angeles, you want to check the watch buyer’s expertise in antique, vintage, and limited-edition Swiss timepieces from elite watch brands, such as Rolex, Breguet, Vacheron Constantin, and Jaeger LeCoultre.
Over the past few years, you may have noticed that Los Angeles fine jewelers have begun to buy back previously-owned timepieces. While these LA fine jewelry stores may have a good grasp of the current watch trade, they often lack expertise in antique and vintage timepieces. It’s important to remember that most Los Angeles jewelers specialize in the sale of new fine jewelry and watches rather than estate jewelry and previously-owned timepieces.
The best places to sell a watch are with Los Angeles dealers who have been buying and selling estate watches for a long time. These LA watch buyers have spent their careers building expertise in previously-owned timepieces, while also establishing worldwide channels through which they can re-sell your valuable watch. This enables them to pay you more cash for your contemporary, vintage, and antique watches.
At Los Angeles Jewelry Buyer, our team of experienced watch buyers is led by Carl Blackburn. Mr. Blackburn is a 2nd generation estate jeweler who has been in the business of buying and selling important estate jewelry and watches since the 1980s.
He also is an internationally-recognized fine jewelry designer whose global travels have enabled him to establish resale contacts with private watch collectors & retailers around the world.
This experience and expertise means that Blackburn and Los Angeles Jewelry Buyer are better able to evaluate the true market value of your expensive timepiece, versus those LA watch buyers who resell your watch from their store showcases or their website. It also means we are in a better position to pay you more of the cash you deserve for your watch in Los Angeles County.
Our Lower Overhead Means More Cash for Your Los Angeles Timepiece
The best place to sell a watch in Los Angeles is with an established watch dealer who is able to operating expenses low, while still attracting new clients and repeat business. Some online watch buyers spend hundreds of dollars a day on Google ads, Facebook ads, and other online advertising.
Many bricks-and-mortar watch buyers in Los Angeles also have high daily operating expenses associated with inventory, rentals, mortgages, and staffing. High operating costs are especially true of LA jewelry stores and watch dealers who are located in upscale shopping neighborhoods.
At Los Angeles Jewelry Buyer, we operate under a different business model. We spend no money on Google ads, Facebook ads, or any other type of paid online advertising. Our estate buying office is a modest one, located within a secure & discreet neighborhood in Redondo Beach, CA.
We are rated among the top watch buyers in Los Angeles County based on our long list of satisfied clients who recommend our services to their friends and family—as well as Carl Blackburn’s established reputation for honesty, integrity, and confidentiality.
By reducing our operating and advertising expenses, we can pass those savings on to you in the form of higher cash payments for your antique, vintage, and limited-edition watches.
A Los Angeles Watch Buyer with Transparent Business Practices
Lastly, the best place to sell a watch in Los Angeles is with a luxury watch dealer who has a verifiable track record and is upfront about who they are. Some LA watch buyers make impressive claims about their credentials, yet when you investigate deeper, it is hard to find any information about their history as a watch buyer and who owns the business.
Some Los Angeles watch buyers may attach the BBB logo to their website, but when you conduct a search on the Better Business Bureau website, you discover that they aren’t actually a registered company.
Other LA watch buyers make exaggerated guarantees, while spending enormous amounts of in advertising dollars (as we discussed earlier). It’s important to take note of the fine print when it comes to companies who “guarantee” that they will pay you more for your Rolex watch or other luxury timepiece.
Some Los Angeles watch buyers claim that they will beat any competitor’s cash offer. However, when you probe deeper, you discover that this guarantee is based on written cash offers—which is difficult (if not impossible) to get from any watch buyer, as they ordinarily will only provide free verbal appraisals and cash quotes. LA watch buyers who make “best cash offer” guarantees do so with the hope that you’ll just take them at face value and sell to them straight away without conducting any other research.
The watch buyers at Los Angeles Jewelry Buyer conduct business with full transparency. Our owner Carl Blackburn is a respected figure among luxury estate buyers and recognized consumer advocate, having served thousands of estate sellers with superior service and generous cash offers.
