Trading in watches - IWC for Rolex Sub

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Long time no post for me. I've been in a pretty monogamous relationship with a 2014 model IWC Aquatimer. Problem is, I keep hankering after a vintage Rolex Sub. Having never had expensive watches before, I wanted to ask, if I do decide to go for a sub can I trade my IWC in against it? Is this a good option or should I private sale the IWC instead?

 

Cheers

By all means get a quote for trade in value at places such as watchfinder, but I think you'll find that you'll lose a significant amount of the resale value in the name of convenience.

Sell the IWC privately then go along and haggle for a discount on the Rolex with cash on the hip. Watchfinder will knock money off the asking price , but I don't think they are to generous on trade in values

In my opinion used Aquatimers are available quite cheaply. Obviously this depends on the model so assumes yours is a standard version and not one of the uber expensive ones.  

I'd suggest holding out for full price then adding cash to get a good original vintage sub rather than a trade.
