How do you determine your prices?

In short, supply and demand is what dictates our prices. We use thousands of market data points to determine our prices. Hard statistics and dry facts is what determines our pricing - real world, factual data.

Are your watches 100% authentic?

We take great pride in our authentication process. Every watch sold on our site has gone through some of the most rigorous authentication and verification processes in the industry. Your watch is inspected for authenticity, performance and condition by an experienced team of Swiss watchmakers using cutting edge technology and the most modern equipment. Simply put, every watch we sell is 100% certified authentic.

How can I get in touch with you?

Do you sell my personal information to any 3rd parties?

Absolutely not. Your privacy is of our utmost concern and your personal information never gets passed on or sold to any 3rd party.

Is it safe to make such a large purchase online?

Absolutely. We use industry leading, military grade encryption on all of our checkout pages. We never store your credit card information and in fact never even see it.

Watch Buying

Where do your watches come from?

Our watches come from individuals who have sold us their watch through our website. Once we receive a watch we rigorously test it for authenticity, performance and accuracy. If a watch passes all of our inspections it then gets professionally serviced, packaged, and listed for sale on our site. We also have partnerships with some of the leading, most reputable wholesalers in the US and occasionally buy watches from them as well.

Will I get the watch’s original packaging and paperwork?

We try to provide the original box and papers for each watch we sell. However, because all of our watches are pre-owned by individuals, we can not guarantee the original box and papers for each watch we sell. Whether or not a watch for sale does or does not have the original box and papers will be clearly stated on the product page. Regardless of the box and papers, all of our watches are 100% authentic and have passed a multitude of authenticity verification procedures.

Do you sell brand new watches?

We only sell pre-owned certified authentic watches. You can read more about the benefits of buying “pre-owned” here.

Will my watch have the manufacturers warranty?

If a manufacturer warranty is attached to your watch then it will always belong to the watch itself. Some manufacturer warranties belong to an individual and then the warranty does not transfer ownership. Regardless if manufacturer warranty, every single one of our watches listed for sale comes with the Signature Watches one year warranty. You can rest easy knowing our team is always here to service your watch.

Are all of your sales prices final?

Due to the dynamic nature of market supply and demand our prices fluctuate on an ongoing basis. We have included a “make an offer” feature for each one of our watches for sale. If a watch’s listed price is out of your reach, you can always try to make an offer and see if we can match it. This is of course not guaranteed, but definitely worth a shot if a particular desired watch’s listed price is out of your budget.

Will I get a discount if I pay with a wire transfer or check?

Yes, paying via wire transfer or check gives you a 3% discount off of the listed price. Once the funds clear we ship out your watch.

What payment options do you offer?

You can pay by credit card, PayPal, wire transfer or check. Paying by wire transfer or check grants you a 3% discount off the listed price. We also have financing options available which allow you to spread out payments onto 12, 24 or 36 months with very low rates. You can read more about our financing options here.
