Why Should I Trust Worthy Over My Local Watch Buyer?
We understand why you may want to go to a watch shop near you as it is a familiar and trusted place to buy and sell watches. There may however be some downsides to going to your local watch dealer. Beginning with one thing, bias. Watch shop owners have a business to run and may not profit from buying your watch, especially if you have no plans to immediately replace it. While they may certainly be trustworthy, their priorities, and thus their offer may differ from that of a large marketplace such as Worthy. We take pride in offering the trust and familiarity of a watch shop nearby, with the power of an auction platform.
