Careers

Our Services

Buying Watches

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. Every watch on offer has been thoroughly examined in our workshop, so that its authenticity and overall condition can be guaranteed. The contract is always closed between the customer and CHRONEXT. It is our top priority to ensure your security and comfort during your shopping experience.

WatchHunter

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. Your request is not binding and this service is absolutely free of charge.

Instant Sale

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. After condition and authenticity of your watch have been successfully verified, you receive your proceeds within 48 hours.

Commission Sale

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.

Service

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.

CHRONEXT Certificate

The CHRONEXT Certificate provides the following benefits:

CHRONEXT Warranty

We provide 24 Months of Warranty for any watch bought from us, new or used.

Free Part-Revision

Certification

We certify the authenticity of every watch bought on chronext.com. The CHRONEXT certificate card you receive with every watch warrants that it has been verified by our watchmakers, independently of any manufacturer certificates or documentation.
