Crown & Caliber Launches Industry's First App for Selling Luxury Watches

ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--

How much is your watch worth? Today, leading online luxury consignment company, Crown & Caliber, unveiled the industry's first app to help people save time, selling time, using any mobile device to quickly generate an expert quote for their luxury watch. Building on the company's successful online watch specialty business (, where thousands of individuals have successfully consigned their luxury watches, the new app allows watch owners a quick, simple and safe way to determine the value of their luxury watch.

Crown & Caliber has quickly become the leader in online re-commerce for expensive luxury watches. Unlike other online options for selling watches, Crown & Caliber will sell your watch for you. The new app allows people a faster way to start the quote process anytime, anywhere from their smartphone or tablet and still offers sellers the full "white glove" treatment Crown & Caliber gives its customers.

"The majority of our site traffic is mobile, so we wanted to make the sellng process more convenient for our customers wherever they are," said Hamilton Powell, CEO and founder of Crown & Caliber. "Watch lovers might be in a store looking for a new watch and be prompted to use our app to generate a quote for a watch they wish to sell or they may just prefer the on-the-go flexibility of using their device."

Crown & Caliber's consignment service has quickly become known in the watch community as a superior alternative to selling a watch yourself. The first step is for the seller to provide basic information about the watch, either through the new app or on the website. After that, the valuation team reviews the information and provides a preliminary quote, along with an insured, pre-paid shipping package for the customer to safely send the watch for inspection. Once the watch is received, the company will then service/clean the watch and then list it on its site - exposing it to thousands of watch enthusiasts both domestically and internationally. The watch then sells in 60 days or less at or above the original estimate given to the watch owner.
