Have more questions?
The short answer: very accurate.
Over 99% of the time, we stand behind the initial quote when we receive your watch in person. In other words, there's no bait and switch. Crown & Caliber employs 5 full-time valuation experts who do nothing but research the pricing history of our clients’ watches. In fact, we have built the most comprehensive database of pre-owned watches ever assembled. With over 10,000 individual watch models in our database (most of which have at least 10 selling points), we are more than likely to have comprehensive data on your exact watch model. If your watch value changes for any reason once it's in our possession, we will pay shipping and insurance to have your watch returned to you at once.
We have thousands of watches shipped to us from across the world every month, and have never had a lost or damaged watch. In the rare event that damage occurs, we insure every watch to 100% of the value of the quote we provided you. Rest assured, our shipping process is safe and secure.
Yes – our team is always available to answer any questions you may have. We recognize that a watch is a unique and often sentimental item, and we are there every step of the way to make sure you and your watch are treated with respect and care. Contact us now.
We charge a 19.5% consignment fee on every watch we sell, plus a small prep fee which varies based on the price of the watch. This is one of the lowest commissions in the industry (nearly half of an auction house, when both buyer and seller premiums are taken into account). It is important to note that we don't get paid unless we sell your watch for at least the estimated value. Our sell-through rate is more than 95%. However, if we do not sell your watch within the consignment period, you will be given the option of receiving your watch back – inclusive of all the servicing, restoration, and cleaning we performed – at zero cost to you. That’s how confident we are that we can sell your watch for top dollar.
Yes – we are a global marketplace and have accepted watches from and sold watches to customers in over 30 countries and counting, a specific list of which can be found here. Please get in touch if you have any concerns.
