Selling a Rolex watch, particularly if it is an old piece, is sometimes painful to its owners. This is particularly true if the owner has a long history with the watch. Parting with it takes a lot of fortitude and determination. So it is important to make sure that once you decide to part with the watch, you get a good price for it.
There are several factors that need to be considered in selling a pre-owned Rolex watch. An important consideration is the tightness of the band. A tighter band typically brings in more money than an older looking, worn out, loose band. The condition of the dial is critical as well. Remember that original dials are valued more than refurbished dial. This valuation is true even if the original piece is not in tip-top shape.
Of course, the materials used in your Rolex will be considered as well. Most buyers typically look for watches made of white or yellow gold, 14k or 18k, platinum, and even stainless steel. Also, take note that buyers pay a premium if you have the original box and papers with the timepiece.
So how exactly can you sell a Rolex watch? Well, a Rolex watch is not something most people can afford. It would be unwise to limit yourself to your locality when it comes to selling pre-owned mens Rolex watches. In this regard, here are a few options you can consider:
eBay - a lot of people underestimate the potential of eBay. It is very possible to sell Rolex watches and other jewelry items at a reasonable price at the site. Just make sure you know all the details about seller protection before joining.
Reputable Local Dealer - dealers are usually the first choice among Rolex sellers. Most buyers can provide immediate cash for their needs. Doing business with local dealers is a proven way to sell your Rolex. However, you might not necessarily get the best price from them.
Reputable Online Dealer - sell a watch online to a reputable online dealer will open up a lot of opportunities for you. For example, it is possible to get a higher price in these transactions because the internet is a competitive marketplace.
Original Rolex components are the primary factor buyers look for when they buy pre-owned timepieces. Add-on dials, bezels, or any other accessory that did not come from Rolex will not help you get a higher price. It also doesn't matter much if your Rolex is in working condition.
Even if it hasn't been functional for some time, buyers will accept it especially if they are in the business. After all, they are professionals and are capable of making it work again. Ultimately, original and authentic Rolex watch will get the best prices for you. Just make sure to go to a legitimate buyer for your protection and profit.

Burglar alarms and digital security are all well and good for protecting your business from outside strangers. But what about the people inside your business, the ones that already have access to the inner workings? Whilst it would be paranoid to distrust every client and employee you work with, having some security methods in place to protect the odd scam artist or mole is important. Here are just a few measures worth considering in order to protect your business all the way to its core.
Limit sensitive data to specific trusted employeesLong-time employees who have proven their loyalty can often be trusted with all elements of your business. However, you shouldn’t go handing out passwords to financial details and codes to safes to new employees. Let your employees prove they can be trusted by slowly giving them more responsibility. If they exploit that power, then you know that they cannot be trusted with sensitive information.

When you go to events such as open days, conferences, seminars and workshops, it enables you to understand more about the market and businesses that are at the events. You can also learn about the products or services they deliver and how they can help us. If you do not really understand what a business is all about, then there is a good chance that you will not be drawn to their products or services, and they will opt to buy from a business which portrays those aspects well. If you own a business which has products or services which can be shown off, then it could be a good idea to attend these types of events so that your business can take advantage of eager customers.
With these types of events, it is important that a business takes the right employees to ensure that their products get the most exposure, so that they can appeal to customers and financial investors alike. If the wrong employees are not chosen to go to these events, you are running a risk of your business not being allowed to reach its full potential to clients and customers. For example, if you run a business that specialises in bespoke furniture, then you would do well to send employees who have an in depth knowledge of the furniture, and who have appealing personalities. Also, it may help if the employees that you send have got appealing personalities and are not afraid to approach customers to talk about the products.

Bad Weather Affects Sales
For many businesses, bad weather means poor sales performance on a particular day or few days. Companies that rely on people walking to their premises and buying things depend on the weather to be kind to them. If it rains or there’s a snowstorm, people are more inclined to stay in their house. They’re not likely to go down to their local store and buy something, they’ll wait for the weather to clear up. If your business depends on foot traffic, then you’ll see dips in sales performance when the weather is bad. This is why it’s important you try and implement other sales methods, such as online selling.
