All of the watches advertised on watchuwant.com are guaranteed to be authentic with manufacturer serial and reference numbers intact. Through the course of our 15 years in business, we have never sold a fake watch, even accidentally. Selling even a single fake watch would ruin a reputation we have been building since 2001. Moreover, the authenticity of our watches is guaranteed indefinitely for as long as a customer owns the watch.
Our watches are sourced directly or indirectly from authorized dealers whom we trust and have been dealing with regularly for years. They are, like us, members of the IWJG (International Watch & Jewelry Guild). By dealing only with trusted sources who never deface or remove serial numbers, we ensure that each and every new watch is authentic.
When purchasing high-quality pre-owned watches, we strive to buy only from collectors, especially those with whom our company has a long-term working relationship. Each pre-owned watch we receive goes through a rigorous inspection process and is checked against an authentication database or known counterfeits. Moreover, each watch that is considered for purchase by our company is subjected to the scrutiny of our factory-certified master watchmakers. Please visit our AUTHENTICATION and PROCESS service page for full details of our authentication and assessment measures.
watchuwant.com accepts trades involving timepieces of greater, lesser, and equal value. The difference will be credited toward a client's purchase of greater value than the trade or forwarded in the form of payment accompanying a chosen watch of lesser value than the trade-in. Preliminary trade-in values can be conveyed via phone and email contact, but all timepieces must be inspected, authenticated, and appraised by watchuwant.com's specialist team before ultimate trade value can be specified. Please see our WATCH TRADES service page for full details.
We look for the best deals we can find on quality watches, and have been doing so since 2001; we are well connected. watchuwant.com's experience, network of partners, and economies of scale ensure that we are able to obtain the best prices for inventory and pass the savings to our clientele. We buy closeouts, overstocks, end runs, etc. from stores and factory distributors. We are not an "authorized retailer" of our watches because doing so would restrict us from offering a comprehensive range of brands and industry-leading discounts from retail pricing. When buying a watch pre-owned in "as-new" condition from watchuwant.com, the only difference between us and the "authorized retailer" is that ours are backed by our ninety day warranty versus the manufacturer’s warranty.
BNIB stands for Brand New In Box. These are watches that come as if they were being purchased from an authorized dealer. This means they come with hang tags, boxes, warranty papers, extra straps, factory stickers, and any applicable tools. In certain cases, watchuwant.com is able to obtain and offer these watches with executed and valid factory warranty cards.
