Valuing Your Watch
Our highly trained specialists carefully assess each watch and take into consideration the brand, model, condition, desirability, age, provenance, quality of craftsmanship and market value to ensure we provide you with the most accurate and up to date valuation and loan estimate. The five most important factors are:
Brand and Model
This is one of the most important factors that drives value. Limited editions of either vintage or modern watches are deemed higher value and attract interest from collectors. Furthermore, certain models of luxury brands such as Rolex and Patek Philippe tend to hold their value much better over time than other less prestigious watch brands.
The overall working and aesthetic condition can affect the value of a watch. We understand that over time your luxury watch might have some wear and tear, though any significant dents, scratches, repairs, restorations or other damage to the glass or bracelet can impact the value.
The age of your watch can have a positive or negative impact on value. Contemporary and modern watches tend to have a higher value when they are newer. Vintage watches are valued on their rarity and condition.
If you have the original box, a certificate of sale or any papers that record information about your watch, this adds value. If you have lost or misplaced them, don’t worry, we will still be able to provide you with a loan estimate.
We consider any recent information we can locate from auction and private sale records to ensure our valuations are accurate.
We also check your watch against loss and stolen registers as part of our due diligence.
Looking After Your Watch
If you use our courier service to have your watch(s) collected from your home or you send your items to us, they will be insured up to £10,000 during transportation.
If your watch(s) is of high value and you use our staff collection service, they will be insured up to £100,000 during transportation.
Whilst your watch(s) is with us to be valued by our specialists or if your watch(s) is under loan with us, it is stored in protective packaging in our highly secure vaults.
When your watch(s) is with us, we take every step necessary to look after it. Our valuation specialists and inventory managers handle your watch(s) with care to make sure your luxury valuables are returned to you in the same condition we received them in.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why loan against your watch?
Luxury watches often have sentimental value, collected as an investment piece or bought to remember or celebrate a particular achievement. Luxury watch owners are often reluctant to sell their luxury timepiece and therefore securing funds against their watch can often be the best option when looking to raising short term finance.
At Suttons and Robertsons, we can release the value in your luxury watch in as little as 1 hour. The loan is secured against your watch which remains under your ownership for the duration of the loan. When you redeem the loan, your luxury watch is returned to you.
Can I sell used watch?
Yes, if you decide you don’t want to pawn your watch, you can sell your watch to us. Get a quote with us online, in-store or by phone today.
Can I pawn my watch online?
Yes. Suttons and Robertsons are an in-store and online pawn shop.

Alternatively, you are welcome to collect your item(s) in-store.
