CHRONEXT keeps a continually growing range of watches available for sale. In order to provide a wide selection, we procure watches from verified retailers around the world as well as from private individuals.

It is our top priority to ensure your security and comfort during your shopping experience.
Our professional WatchHunter team specialises in finding watches on request. Our dense network of international partners and our comprehensive expertise on the market enable us to quickly locate rare watches. Whether you are looking for a rare vintage piece or a standard model, a new release or an affordable alternative – our WatchHunter team will find it for you.

Whether new or pre-owned, at CHRONEXT you can quickly sell your watch. With our instant sale option, you receive a non-binding offer within 48 hours. Enter the relevant details about your watch in our online purchase form, and we will arrange for the fully insured pickup of your watch.

In addition to instant sale, we offer commission sale as a second option. This option includes the presentation of your watch in our international online shop. You decide the price for your watch – we will gladly consult you on the current market situation. The commission sale transaction starts with the fully insured pickup of your watch, which is then examined, cleaned, and, if previously arranged, serviced in our workshop. Finally, it will be photographed and posted in our online shop.
With our certified in-house watchmakers’ workshop, we can provide a broad range of professional services for your watch. The majority of these services can be completed directly in our workshop. For certain specialised procedures, like PVD/DLC coating, we work with hand-picked partners. Of course we also take care of safe pick-up and transport of your watch.
