All Island Jewelry & Loan is always looking to purchase quality wrist watches and pocket watches.
Many common gold watches made in the last 20 to 30 years are probably worth their weight in gold only, but All Island Jewelry & Loan will examine your watch to determine if it has any value above melt. Hunting case watches (flip covers) that are working or repairable are valuable. Repeater watches which chime the time are very valuable – often worth over $1,000. Old silver watches are also worth a premium.
Certain brands of watches retain their value better than others. And certain collectible watches are often worth more than their original purchase price. Some of the considerations that affect the value of your watch include: condition, paperwork, age, original box, demand, and quality. All Island Jewelry & Loan will pay premium prices for watches in mint condition and for watches with the original box and paperwork. Particularly valuable watches are Rolex, Cartier, Tiffany, Omega, Patek, Phillipe, and Piaget.
