Do Pawn Shops Buy and Sell Watches?
In general, the answer is yes, most pawn shops take watches. For example, at AJ’s Super Pawn, we buy and sell watches at our two shops located in Chino and Pomona, California.
However, remember that every pawn shop has its own rules and fields of expertise. To be sure if your local pawn shop takes watches, give them a call and find out. If you’d like to browse some of our watches, feel free to give us a visit, or browse our online store.
What Are the Best Watches To Pawn?
As with any other item, the money a pawn shop can offer for your watch will depend on various factors, including the brand of your watch, its condition, and the market demand for that specific model/brand.
When it comes to the brand factor, some of the brands of watches that command the best prices include:
- Patek Philippe
- TAG Heuer
- IWC Schaffhausen
- Audemars Piguet
Should I pawn my watch or sell it?
One of the decisions you have to make before walking into a pawn shop is whether you prefer to pawn or sell your watch.
If you don’t want your watch anymore (perhaps because you have several) or are OK with parting ways with it, then you should consider selling your watch, especially considering that you can get more cash when you sell your watch instead of selling it.
On the other hand, if you want to get your watch back, then the best option is to pawn it. This way, you’ll be able to retrieve your watch when you pay back your pawn shop loan.
And remember: at AJ’s Super Pawn we may be able to offer extensions on your loan in some cases. This means that If you are unable to pay back your loan in full by its due date, you get more time; we only require you to pay the interest owed.
