We have a simple rule at Swiss Watch Trader; if we don't like it, and wouldn't spend our own money on it, then we won't stock it. Our selection of new, used & pre-owned watches may not be the most extensive but we believe they are the most desirable. Other used watch dealers may have larger selections but what we lack in quantity we make up for in quality.
With the exception of a few vintage and military examples, all watches are complete with the minimum of their original boxes and papers. Any ancillary items such as manuals, bezel protectors and hang tags will not be added to a set if missing. We believe in being 100% honest with our watches and will not add to sets just to increase the asking price.
If viewing your next watch prior to making a decision or collecting after payment is not possible at our main office in Whiteley, Fareham. We can arrange viewings at our other offices located in Hampshire and along the south coast; including Southampton, Portsmouth, Basingstoke, Salisbury and the Isle of Wight.
Describing the condition of pre-owned watches is always subjective. What one person classes as "mint" anther may consider as average. At Swiss Watch Trader we are very critical and try to let the images talk for themselves. If a watch is new and unworn it will be described as such. If a watch shows the slightest signs of being worn then it will be described as immaculate or outstanding. The worst you will find on this website is excellent. If a watch arrives in anything less than the best possible condition then it will be sent for a full service and overhaul with the manufacturer - we do not use 3rd parties for servicing. All photographs on this website are of the actual watch for sale. No editing has taken place - they are exactly as pictured.
Finance is also available on all watches in stock. We have currently set the example APR at 14.9% with a 50% deposit. However most watches are available on 0% - but this would depend on the deposit contribution. The balance of payments can be spread over 12 to 48 months. Finance is subject to status and provided by our external partner, Close Brothers Retail Finance. If accepted you will be able to borrow between £300 and £15,000. Applicants must be 18 or older, in regular employment and have been a UK resident for more than 3 years, other terms and conditions apply.
Every used & pre-owned Rolex, Omega, Breitling, TAG Heuer, Panerai or other Swiss watch that arrives in stock is visually and mechanically checked prior to going on sale and will include a 12 month warranty. Any watch failing our inspection will be sent back to the manufacturer for a full service and overhaul - we do not use 3rd parties for watch servicing or repair. The warranty is limited to mechanical defects not caused by the owner/wearer. Accidental damage is not covered, nor are issues caused by mishandling, mistreatment or neglect. Water damage is not covered by the 12 month warranty.
Methods of payment include PayPal, debit/credit card, bank transfer and cash on collection. Payment on collection via Chip & Pin is also an option. For security reasons we are unable to process payments over the phone unless the buyer provides suitable identification.
All watches purchased within the UK will be sent free of charge via Royal Mail Special Delivery and fully insured. International shipping is £100 via FedEx. If your new watch arrives and is not as expected or unsuitable then a full refund will be issued including any postage costs incurred.
We are more than happy to accept your watch in part exchange. A price will be agreed in principle and a contract will be sent via email with payment and delivery instructions. Once your watch arrives and confirmed to be in the condition described, the outstanding balance must be made prior to any goods being dispatched. Where your part exchange allowance exceeds the purchase price of the goods, we will issue you with the appropriate credit by bank transfer.
