Buying Antique Clocks and Pocket Watches at a Pawn Shop

Because we strive to have something for everyone in our shop, we are always on the lookout for that perfect antique clock, or antique pocket watch, that we know one of our regulars would love to own. As a shopper on the hunt for collectible antiques, this means that the inventory in pawn shops, including Central Mega Pawn, is constantly changing. So you’ll want to visit frequently.
In addition to regularly buying antique clocks and pocket watches, we also purchase many other antiques, including:
- Art (paintings, sculptures, etc.)
- Film Memorabilia
- Musical Instruments
- Sewing Machines
- Sports Memorabilia
- Writing tools (fountain pens, etc.)
- Much more
Bottom line: when you’re on the hunt for an antique clock, pocket watch or any other antique, don’t forget to visit Central Mega Pawn.
Selling Antique Clocks and Pocket Watches at a Pawn Shop
If you’ve inherited items that you won’t use, it’s smart to bring them to a pawn shop for same-day cash. The items will be evaluated, and based on current customer needs, you may receive an offer on the spot for your antique clock or pocket watch. Our team of eagle-eyed professionals knows what antique collectors are looking for in specific items, and if yours meets these needs, we’ll offer you immediate cash.
Some of the most in-demand items from antique collectors include antique clocks and pocket watches, so before you throw away items you’ve inherited, bring them to us. You may just walk out with a nice payment for items you had planned to discard. In addition to antique clocks and pocket watches, be sure to bring us your old jewelry, old coins, old artwork, instruments, tools, household decor items, and more. As the saying goes, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure, and you should make sure you’re not missing out on money when you offload old items.
Pawning Antique Clocks and Pocket Watches
If you find yourself in a cash crunch, you will be happy to know that you may be holding on to items that could earn you cash fast. Even better, you don’t have to sell the item. At Central Mega Pawn, we are happy to consider your antique items for a pawn loan. We may accept antique items as collateral, including clocks, pocket watches, jewelry, place settings, coins, and much more. If we agree to extend a pawn loan for your watch or clock, you can expect immediate cash and an easy-to-repay pawn loan.
How does a pawn loan for an antique work?
A pawn loan for an antique clock or pocket watch is structured the same way all pawn loans are structured. We will examine your item, determine the value, and make you an offer on a loan. If you accept the loan and terms, you will leave our pawn shop, with cash in your hand.
Already have another pawn loan? That is not a problem. There is no limit on the amount you can borrow from Central Mega Pawn, and there is no limit on the number of loans you may have at one time. All pawn loans come with a four-month repayment plan. However, if you need to extend or renew your loan, we can work with you, so long as the interest is always paid in full. Once you’ve made all payments in full, the item or items you’ve pawned will be returned to you.
You can also feel comfortable knowing that a pawn loan will not have any impact on your credit report. Likewise, all pawn loans remain confidential, so no one but you will know about the loan. You will also take comfort in knowing that all interest rates and terms of your loan are regulated by the state of California.
