Instructions

  1. 1

    List your watches with an online auction site. This is one of the safest and most popular ways to sell unwanted items and the world is your market place. You can set the lowest bid so your item will garner the amount you want to receive.

  2. 2

    Take your watches to a pawn broker if they are of any particular value. Precious metal and gemstones are always marketable and you might get a better price if a person can examine your watches in person. A pawnbroker pays you according to weight of your precious metals and the market value of gemstones. You can also use your goods as collateral for a loan. Retrieve your items within a certain time frame by paying the loan with interest.

  3. 3

    Sell your wares to a consignment shop. These shops don't usually pay you upfront. They wait for the product to sell then you are given a percentage of the proceeds.

  4. 4

    Advertise your watches on an Internet classified site or try your local newspaper. Interested parties can contact you by phone or e-mail. As a safety precaution agree to meet in a public place and avoid giving your home address to strangers.

  5. 5

    Add some other items to your inventory and have a yard or garage sale. There are people who dedicate time in their week to look for what you may be selling.
