Tips for Pawning Your Watch in Woodland Hills
Our best tips on how you might get a bigger loan are:
- Make sure your watch is clean and presentable

- Choose a pawn shop that specializes in high-end watches
- Try to determine beforehand how much your watch is worth
Two easy ways that might help you determine the value of your designer watch are:

Search for your watch and model on eBay. Find the “Show only” heading and tick the “Sold Items” block. It will show you recent sales and how much they fetched.
LiveAuctioneers.com has a database with more than 29 million results of what items, including luxury watches, sold for on auctions all over the world.
Selling vs Pawning Your High-End Watch
Pawning your high-end watch makes sense if you only need a short-term loan and want it back after repaying your loan. But if you no longer want it, consider selling it.
