Clean and evaluate the condition of the watch. Test for functionality and damages. If you’re going to pawn or sell your watch to a pawn shop, you’ll want to make sure that your watch works perfectly and that their are little to no major cosmetic issues to your watch. Pawn shops aren’t interested in atches a step below higher end watches that will cost them money to sell because it’s not profitable.
Cleaning a watch is a very delicate process. Sometimes polishing or using cleaning agents on your watch can hurt the look of the watch which then hurts it’s value. I always recommend wiping away any dirt or dust with a paper towel and water. If polishing is needed, let that be the pawn shops problem.
If you have the box and papers that came with the watch, it will help your case in getting the highest offer possible. Pawn shops love the total package. If you bring them the watch and the box it came with it, that will encourage them to give you a great offer on your watch. Check out the table below for offers on watches PawnGuru often sees below.
