    Help valuing my 58

    I am thinking of selling my 58 to fund a new watch but need help!

    The watch was bought new by me in November 2018. I have worn it a lot but it is in very good condition. Some hairlines on the polished areas but they donít show up in the images below. Some very light strap changing marks on the reverse of the case. I bought the watch on leather but bought a tudor bracelet brand new from a forum member which is what it would come with. Two of the lugs were re-brushed by a jeweller after my AD had a miss gap with it but I canít tell the difference aside from the grain not being quite as good as the factory finish. The clasp would be brand new and never worn so no images of that.

    If it comes with both the leather strap and the bracelet I'd say £3000.

    On SC, about £2600-2700 (with both straps). £2400-£2500 just on bracelet.

    SC value is around £2,500 for a tidy one on bracelet based on recent completed sales including my own minter.

    High 2's on eBay to compensate for the potential hassle

    The lug re brush may be a factor depending on how well it is blended.

    Yes, with a wait of a few months

    I doubt you will get any near that for a worn 2018 watch on SC. I would expect in the region of £2300 - £2400.

    They are certainly not difficult to obtain if you ring round a couple of ADís.

    The BB58 is a bit of an oddball when it comes to second hand prices, the hype drives the price up for some people who donít know where or how to get one from an AD. But if you look around and are prepared to travel a bit itís actually really easy to find one. Iirc one went on SC last month for £1800 on nato, add a nice Strapcode bracelet and you have a BB58 on bracelet for under £2k.

    It will be interesting to see what happens to prices of the gilt 58 when the blue 58 is available.

    I thought that but a lot of people seem to be struggling to get one on a bracelet at the moment new from an AD.

    Well not sure where there are looking but they are certainly available.

    I viewed one on bracelet last week after calling one store but turned it down as seeing it in person reminded me why I sold one in the begin.

    I got one from an AD last month for £2,500, hence my pricing. I just sent an email. Iíve seen others get them quite easily.

    Wow! Honestly never heard of anyone getting discount on GMT or 58.

    You do where I am! I've been quoted anything from 3 months to a year. I did get a call about one yesterday having enquired before lockdown but said I'd hold on for a blue.

    I speculatively contacted 2 ADs last month expecting nothing and was offered a BB58 on bracelet by one, and bracelet or leather by the other.

    Probably deflationary as gilt 58 is readily available new (with a short wait) or second hand. Also demand is shifting toward the blue 58 as itís the new thing (even if not the better thing)

    Iíd say £2,000 to £2,400 range seems ok dependant on condition for the steel bracelet version. Knock >10% off for other strap options

    OP has SC access so could just do what loads of others do -- wildly overprice and then bump and reduce it for a month or three until it's finally sold.

    Approx £2.3k imo.
