    Now is the Time to Sell Your Vintage Watch in Chicago

    Posted on November 11th, 2022 by Joe G

    Hidden Treasure

    These economic times can be tough, and many people are living paycheck to paycheck nowadays, sometimes finding it difficult to make ends meet. However, you may have some untapped sources for income that you have not even thought of. For instance, if you happen to have a Rolex vintage Triple Date Moon Phase watch you are deciding it’s time to part with, we are interested in buying it. We love antique watches and old timepieces – for the stories they tell, the intricacy in their design, and the inner workings behind their intriguing faces.

    Time is Money

    One of the best ways to get cash quickly is to sell the Audemars Piguet vintage gold watch you may have been keeping on a shelf – but never wear. Perhaps you have a vintage Omega 21 Electra watch, gifted from a relative – or maybe you found a Patek Philippe platinum watch or a Rolex Cosmograph “Paul Newman” at a garage sale or auction. While these timepieces are wonderful, if you are not wearing or using it, your watch can provide you with the additional cash you need now.

    You may be wondering if you truly have something of worth. Starting with the basics, here are ten of the top brand names collectors are almost always interested in seeing – and often looking to purchase:

    • Audemars Piguet

    • Blancpain

    • Glashutte Original

    • Jaeger-LeCoultre

    • Jaquet Droz

    • Omega

    • Patek Philippe

    • Rolex

    • Ulysse Nardin

    • Vacheron Constantin

    Vintage, Gold, and Unusual Watches

    Whether it is your uncle’s pocket watch, or it’s the Rolex cocktail watch you bought at a garage sale years ago, depending on the condition of your watch, there is a good chance it is worth something. No matter what brand of watch you have, if it is old or it is gold, or you think it is different, (i.e. asymmetrical shaped) from anything you have ever seen, we would love to see it.

    Our valuation experts at Chicago Gold Gallery are always extremely happy to offer their expert opinion and provide a fair, honest, top offer for your vintage timepiece. You have absolutely nothing to lose – and money to gain, if you decide to sell your watch to the best watch buyer in Chicago..

    Customer Testimonial

    Had a Great Experience

    I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.
