How to Quickly and Securely Sell Your Watch on Chrono24

  2. 2.  Use our secure payment processing

  3. 3.  Send the item insured

  4. 4.  Complete the sale

Secure Payment Processing

Payment processing via Chrono24's free Escrow Service is designed specifically for luxury watches. It guarantees both you and the buyer a secure sales process.

  1. The buyer transfers payment to a secure escrow account
  2. Payment arrives in the escrow account, and you are notified in your myChrono24 user area.
  3. You ship the watch insured for its full value.
  4. Once the buyer has received their watch, you will receive payout of the sales price within 7 days.

Obtain the Best Sales Prices

On Chrono24, there's no middle man. You sell your watches directly to the customer, meaning you can achieve even higher sales prices.

Once you sell your watch, we charge a modest 6,5% commission fee.

It's easy to create a free watch listing on Chrono24.

You'll be asked to enter all the most important information about your timepiece.
What's more, you can also add a detailed description of its condition, service history, repairs, and accessories. This makes your listing even more appealing to potential buyers.
High-quality images and close-ups of the watch, its condition, and any accessories round off a good listing.
If you've never listed a watch on Chrono24 before, you will have to register before you can complete your listing.
The Chrono24 Escrow Service makes payment processing simple and secure:
1. The buyer transfers the amount due to Chrono24's secure escrow account.
2. You receive a notification on your Chrono24 account letting you know when the money arrives in the escrow account.
3. You insure and ship the watch.
4. The buyer receives the watch. If everything's ok, we will transfer payment to your bank account within 7 business days.

The Escrow Service is free of charge for all Chrono24 users.
It also saves you from having to look into fee-based, third-party escrow services.
Private sellers can list their watch for free on Chrono24.

Once you sell your watch, we charge a modest 6.5% commission fee.
As a result, you will make a higher profit selling on Chrono24 than you would if you went to a jeweler or auction house.
The 6.5% commission fee is only due after you've completed a sale on Chrono24.

We automatically retain the commission fee at the time of payout from the Chrono24 escrow account.
In the rare case that the Escrow Service is unavailable (e.g., if the buyer is in a country not covered by this service), you'll receive an invoice for the commission fee upon completion of the transaction.
Reference numbers indicate a watch's specific model and/or model variant and can be composed of letters and numbers. Some manufacturers put the reference number on the case back (not to be confused with the case number), between the lugs, or inscribe it on the dial. You should always be able to find the reference number in your watch's documents and on the invoice. If you cannot locate the reference number, search for the manufacturer (often found on the dial) and compare the image results with your watch. This quick bit of research should help you in most cases.
