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.

What makes chronotrade different

Finding that no other platform encapsulated our attributes and based on feedback from the public, we set-up Chronotrade to provide the following:


All watches traded publicly are authenticated by specialists so you can be confident in your purchase.


We have inclusive escrow services incorporated into the website so every transaction is protected against fraud.

Easy to use platform

Dedicated design with simplicity as its main focus, adding a listing or making a purchase couldn’t be easier.

Priced on commission after completion

Always free-of-charge to list, with no hidden or upfront costs. Commission is only paid upon completed sales transactions.

Full control over listing

You set the price you feel is right for your timepiece, whether you’re selling outright or setting a reserve for Auction.

UK based products

We only accept listings and purchases from within the UK for security and to prevent any additional customs or delivery charges.

Competitive rates

We set very competitive commission rates which are only ever charged once a transaction has been completed.

Dedicated trade access

With trade accounts only available to reputable businesses, we open more secure avenues to trade your timepieces.

Auction area

Trade accounts gain exclusive access to our Auction area for bidding on publicly listed watches, after they are put into Auction for 72 hours by the seller.

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.
