Guide to Selling Your Watch

As we've always said, selling your watch should be an experience not just a transaction. Peter Machlup has been buying and selling watches in Johannesburg for over 30 years so we thought we'd put a guide together on some of our most frequently asked questions. 

What kind of watch can I sell?

Peter Machlup trades in luxury watches. The brands we buy are Rolex, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Cartier, Breitling, Omega, Tudor and others (see full list below). 

Do you buy watches in any condition? 

It all depends on the watch itself. Depending on the brand, model and rarity of the watch. That being said, the better the condition of the watch the higher its value will be. 

How do I know I'm getting the best price? 

Peter Machlup has always believed in fairness and honesty. That's why we're the South Africa's most trusted and experienced watch trader. We've been in the business for over 30 years, because of our reputation and repeat customers. 

How safe is it to sell my watch?

Peter Machlup is probably the safest place to sell your luxury watch. We're not a high street or mall outlet where anybody can access. We're located in a secure private office and share location space with Cortac security. You will need to pass through a security check before being granted access into the building.

To start the process, simply fill in the form on our website. If your watch meets our criteria, we will be in contact regarding the next steps.
