Fixing a luxury watch

The new way to trade timepieces

Chronotrade has been launched as a solution to problems we have faced as a luxury watch retailer. Being traders with strong connections in the UK watch industry, we struggled to find a fair and safe way to market and sell premium timepieces.

Our primary focus is to provide a platform that has been built with security in mind, where the seller feels safe and the buyer understands that we are here to protect them from the perils of unverifiable online purchases.

Authenticating a watch

Trading Fairly

Searching for a solution to help the public in a safe way to receive a fair price for their goods became problematic due to the margin traders need to make a profit, and due to ever increasing overheads.

These issues became the catalyst for us to create a dedicated service, available for everybody to use with no upfront costs, eliminating the dangers of unauthentic goods.

We see ourselves as the primary watch trading platform for the UK, dedicated to protecting you against untrustworthy business practices and exorbitant fees.

What makes us tick

Here at Chronotrade we have a passion for watches and love trading with people who share our enthusiasm.

The project was started when we noticed there was a number of sellers who were unwilling to part from their watches as they felt they were not getting a fair price when selling into trade, and when selling privately they were open to time wasters and con artists looking to take advantage.

We thought it was about time to create a market place where watch enthusiasts and traders can buy and sell safe in the knowledge they are protected against the pitfalls of online trading by having a reputable, trustworthy company at the heart of every transaction.
