It is important to have a general idea about the resale market value of your Omega Seamaster before you decide to sell it. The second-hand prices should be found on sites like Chrono24.com.
Omega watch dealers will not offer you that price for your watch because it will include the dealer commission. Watch dealers' commission is between 10% to 20%, and you need to factor in the taxes. It the United States the tax will range from 8% to 15%.
Second-hand watch dealers in the United Kingdom must collect 20% VAT on each watch they resell. If your Omega Seamaster on chrono24.com is worth $8 000, deduct the commission and the taxes, and you get an idea about what a dealer can offer you.
For an Omega Seamaster worth $8 000, you can expect a used watch dealer to offer you from $5500 to $6500.
The benefit of selling your Omega watch to a dealer is that the transaction is fast, and there are no return policies. After the deal is done, you will have no issues.
You're less likely to have problems with a pre-own watch dealer who's reputable and trustworthy, and you don't have to worry. The deal is done and done for good.
