Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you buy watches of all brands?

A: No. We only purchase watches by established luxury brands such as Rolex, Panerai, Cartier, Audemars Piguet, Hublot, Omega, Tag Heuer, IWC, Breitling, Jaeger-Le Coultre, and Patek Phillipe. We reserve the right to only make offers on watches that we are willing to stock; depending on history, age, condition, and brand.

Q: Do you do commission sales?

A: Yes. We typically work on a 10-15% commission rate, depending on the brand, model, condition, and age of the watch. Please contact us for further information on commission selling.

Q: Do you buy vintage watches?

A: Yes, as long as they are manufactured by one of our favoured brands and are in either working or repairable condition.

Q: Do you buy watches without their original box and paperwork?

A: Yes, however the missing elements will be reflected in the valuation, and the watch will undergo an extra thorough inspection.

Q: Is it safe to post the watch to you?

A: Yes. We recommend using insured Royal Mail Special Delivery or a courier service. We hold no responsibility over goods in transit to us, but we are available to receive packages seven days a week and will inform you as soon as it has arrived.

Q: What happens if I send you a watch and sale isn't agreed or it doesn't pass inspection?

A: We will send the watch back to you as soon as possible via insured shipping.

Q: Do you buy watches from outside of the UK?

A: Yes, provided the owner/seller visits us in person. We will accept shipments from some European countries, but this will need to be agreed beforehand.

Q: Is it better to send the watch or deliver it in person?

A: We always recommend visiting our premises so we can meet face-to-face and discuss the watch and offer in person. The payment will also be faster once the price is agreed.

Q: How long does it take to receive a quote/offer?

A: We endeavour to reply to all valuations with an initial offer within 48 hours.

Q: How long does it take to receive payment?

A: Pending the watch inspection, you will receive payment via bank transfer on the same day if the watch is delivered in person, alternatively it will be within 2-3 business days if it is sent remotely.

What our customers say

I sold a JLC Reverso through Tempo & Time in early 2017. The sale process was seamless from start to finish (and they got me an excellent deal fairly quickly for what is ultimately quite a niche watch). Jonathan and Simon are knowledgeable, helpful, very responsive, and an absolute pleasure to deal with overall. I've dealt with many watch dealers over the years and Tempo & Time are one of the absolute best." - Geoffrey L, London
