    Just saying...

    I was also insulted by a ludicrously low offer on a Panerai. I find their watches overpriced by some margin and all too often overpolished as well. I can't imagine a scenario in which I'd deal with them.

    The quotes are competitive on Rolexes, but not sure on otherbrands
    Their premiums on watches puts me of - A private sale is always a preference for me.

    i've used watchfinder several times and always found them a good dealer, but and it's a big but this week i purchased a explorer 2 polar from them only for them to
    sell it to some one else from under me, so they got a stinking email from me and the saga continues i won't be using them again.

    Has anyone negotiated more than the offer with watchfinder?

    I did earlier this year with a SubC but appreciate there is more of an ask for these (just basically said thanks for your offer but won't accept less than £x which they came back with - £500 more!).

    Anyway had an offer for a Tudor Fastrider. Happy with it at the top price as its more than I paid but I'd like a little more if I can. So any tips or is it what it is? I'd take it into Leeds as well as opposed to sending off. May offer it on here first. Only selling as managed to get a brand new Explorer 2 from an AD a lot quicker than I expected (only waited 8 weeks)

    I wondered what people's experience of a Watchfinder sales offer has been?
    I'm in the process of selling back a 2018 Tudor Pelagos, that I bought from them in June for £2750.
    They offered me £1800-£2000 (watch is in practically mint condition) but have only offered £1800 on their final offer.
    I have asked them why the lower offer as. I would be perfectly happy with £2000 and I wait for their reply..
    I might ask them to send it back if they don't up their offer??

    Why? Margins. They will (probably) go to the highest offer if pushed.

    That's what I am hoping for, but we'll see what they say (Terry Root) :)

    .. And they did. I simply asked why they were offering the lower price and that I would happily except £2K. They replied a day later with a revised offer, so completed the sale :)

    Well just dropped my Tudor off at the Leeds store. Great experience again and also got them to go higher than original estimate (called them beforehand and discussed). And am sure could have got more to be honest but very happy at the ease of it all.

    Do you mind me asking how much you got for your Fastrider and which Fastrider it was?

    I had an offer for a Nomos from them once which was eye wateringly low, but I might eat my hat if I think I can get a decent offer from them for a Tudor....

    No problem. It was a ceramic black shield and I got £2100 for it. Original offer was £1800-2000. Watch is 5 months old but I got it for £1750. I did go back and say I wanted £2200 but then stupidly said Iíd accept £2100. Had I left it at £2200 I think theyíd have done that anyway. Oh well canít complain to be fair. I did advertise on SC but no interest so this was just nice and easy
