Protecting you

Chronotrade has been specifically designed with your interests in mind as the luxury watch market is full of potential for loss. From phoney listings, fakes, stolen goods and scammers looking to take your money, we are here to ensure you buy and sell your timepieces with complete peace of mind.

  • Authentication

    Every watch sold through our Online Shop comes to us to be authenticated and checked against the Watch Register so you know it’s genuine.

  • Secure Escrow Payment

    Funds are held in secure escrow so payment is only made once the buyer accepts the watch.

  • Trusted Traders

    Our traders are highly scrutinised within the industry and hold a reputable status as UK business owners.

We guarantee authenticity

Online market places are awash with fake goods and phoney listings. Dealing with Chronotrade will provide security for your transaction. We moderate our listings and will only list watches we consider look genuine from the outset. We also run a strict inspection on the timepiece to ensure what you get is as described and is authentic. We restrict trade accounts to reputable UK businesses with a high standing in the trade so you know you are buying from a genuine trader, and not just a watch enthusiast or collector.

Your security is our priority

From start to finish, Chronotrade protects you against fraudulent, fake and phoney watch sales.

For buyers we provide moderation and authentication so you know you’re getting what you’re paying for. For sellers we hold funds until a watch has been sent out to its new owner and has been accepted, protecting you against false claims that it “never arrived” or wasn’t as described.

We stand as the central pillar between buyers and sellers. So that in the event anything does go wrong, you aren’t left dealing with an individual, but with a reputable, contactable organisation.
